Six or Seven years of grinding it out in a moderately successful punk-metal outfit from the nations humble capital will teach you a few things about life and rock n’ roll: American beer is cheaper than water. Disillusion runs thick in this business. Camping is free. The fans really do make it all worth while. Showers are not necessary. Money is to be burnt. And if you show up at a venue that has more urine on the rest room floors than tiles, and more stickers on the walls than free space, it's probably going to be a good gig. And unavoidably, you learn that change will occur.
We must not fear change. An accumulation of influence is embraced. And with music and in life, what was once simple is now complex. A song is created, sometimes in a single evening, yet it lives forever. It should be able to stand alone, and take you on an audio voyage. After all, let's put image, marketing, branding, and industry elitism aside, and be what it is that we always have been - song writers, performers, artists, humans following their chosen paths and loving it.
At some point in fall ’05 we fell in love with that wonderful woman named the road. She’s some kind of lover. We’ve experienced 10 provinces in Canada and 8 of the U.S. states in our ’88 Chevy Beauville, logging thousands of road clicks. We dig the rock, and the rock digs us. However, periodically you are home and you work, sheepishly. You adjust to normality, then enter the madness, and repeat.
Not a lifestyle for the meek, we’ve had our first lineup change with original bassist Justin Jarvo leaving the band in fall ’07 prompting an unexpected performing hiatus. After much deliberation, and 13 auditions, we invited a charming Nova Scotia lad named Peter Zdravko Dimov to slay the bass and join our clan. With the line-up finally solidified once again we’re back on the gig circuit and busy writing, recording demos and preparing to release a newly completed album. With a handy $5000 winnings from local radio - LIVE 88.5fm, we were able to take our time in studio and produce a killer-sounding album! Excellent! As well, we’re putting major focus on getting organized to resume our road wanderings in 2010 because we like to wail, party, travel, experience, create & inspire.
Let’s sum it up. We have relocated to Vancouver BC, and are fully settled in to the West coast way of life. We’ve got 2.5 albums behind us, over 300 shows logged, 12 000 cd’s in circulation, and a strong buzz building on the internet with over 150 000 plays; Additionally, our video “Hollywood Horror Show” is really awesome and gnarly and you should tell those swell folks at Much Music to keep playing it. We've also submitted our latest video from the upcoming album "Night of your Life" and are dying to get it into rotation as well. View them both on this page... We’ve been saying it for a while, so we can’t stop NOW, there is just NO OTHER WAY.
“There’s always a shred of hope. We’ll go on with our lives one day at a time.” –NOW
