There’s a thunderous noise coming from the mellow landscape of Vancouver Island, Canada these days… Hailing from the Cowichan Valley this shaggy haired foursome burst onto the Canadian music scene with the release of their self titled debut EP in November 2014 and haven’t stopped since. Mixing vintage southern blues sensibilities with screeching and electrifying guitar riffs, thundering drums, and heart/vibe lyrics, these rock ‘n’ roll brothers-in-arms represent a new generation of North American rock bands.
The last 12 months have been a lightning fast trajectory for the band. Jumping into Bryan Adams iconic studio The Warehouse with famed producer Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Arkells, Monster Truck) at the helm, the band’s new EP ‘Tempest’ came together quickly. Thick layered guitars and slamming drums underline soaring rock vocals in a sonic assault that forces blood to flow faster, and creates crackling excitement. This EP jumps out of speakers and every song has a driving force of its own – loud, head thrashing, wild, raging music that sneers, breathes, growls and pulses madly.
Now, ready to tour relentlessly until their sound has pierced all parts of the world, Band of Rascals are going places. Catch them at a city near you soon and earn your bragging rights.
