Max Webster's final studio album, Universal Juveniles, has been released. Most of the new songs now rotate in the setlist, save only for Blue River Liquor Shine (as Kim has confirmed at recent shows). However, original drummer Paul Kersey recalls it being played as early as 1975.

Keyboardist Greg Chadd (from Saga) and bassist Mike Gingrich (from Nightwinds) have joined the band after the exits of Dave Stone and long-time member Dave Myles. Steve McMurray (from Wireless) is added as a second guitarist, bringing the band up to a five piece.
