(in random order)
The fact is that the Winnipeg-based trio thrives in a setting of controlled chaos, refusing to adhere to any set of rules imposed on them. And they’ve heard their fair share in their time together – drummers can’t be lead singers. Bad Brains and Primus shouldn’t be uttered in the same breath as Queens of the Stone Age and The White Stripes… Ex Ømerta spits in their figurative faces.
Using the urban underground of Winnipeg as the inspirational landscape for their music, this three-piece outfit has carved a sound all their own. dirty, loud, and chaotic, yet sweet, melodic, and quirky all in one. Lyrics of romantic longing, too many late nights, and the odd verse of Kanye-like hubris document the after-hours lifestyle the band has become accustomed to on their path for musical identity.
Traitors’ Gate is a guitar driven blues, rock and metal infused band of four from Prince Albert Saskatchewan whose influences range from modern blues rock acts like Allman Brothers and Stevie Ray Vaughan, the metal of Ozzy Osbourne and Sabbath, Guns ‘n Roses, Yngwie and Van Halen to more rhythmic and jazz blues flavours of Clapton, Bruce, and Baker in Cream.
The Hourhand is a 3 piece prairie rock n’ roll band hailing from Regina, SK. Their hard-hitting, no-nonsense approach to rock n’ roll harkens back to 70’s-era Michigan, offering a familiar but refreshing take on the sounds of the American Midwest. With their trademark balls to the wall prairie power, The Hourhand has quickly established themselves as one of the hottest live acts in Western Canada, opening for such rock radio staples as The Lazys and One Bad Son. Recently entering the recording studio with producers Jon Harvey (Monster Truck) and Michael Kiere (Threshold Recording Studio), The Hourhand is set to storm the country with their new releases in 2022. Hold onto your hats, it’s about to get loud!
With their unique combination of small-town roots and big city sound, Winnipeg alt-rockers NORTHERN ROYALS have come to conquer your radio, your streaming service, and your local stage.
Drawing from influences that range from modern rock, post-grunge, to classic rock, the band’s in-your-face rock n’ roll assault is as much at home on mainstream rock radio as it is with the more discerning campus/community FM crowd.
After making the rounds of the Manitoba club scene and festival circuit, sharing the stage with the iconic likes of Jet Set Satellite, Palaye Royale, The Lazy’s, Royal Tusk and more, Northern Royals are ready to take things to the next level in 2021 and beyond. With a new crop of hard-hitting, thought-provoking songs and a debut EP produced by an industry legend Gggarth Richardson, the band has its sights set on mainstream success.
Winnipeg has a proud, storied history of genre-defining rock artists, and Northern Royals have their sights firmly set on joining the pantheon.
