About this Event


Proving that loud, gritty, and ranting punk rock is still alive and thrashing in Canada, Toronto's were founded in 2004 and recorded a four-song demo that the band pressed for sale at shows in early 2005; the disc soon sold out two pressings, and was later reissued as a 7" vinyl EP. The hard-partying band released its first full-length album, Birthing the Giant, in 2006. The band kept up its relentless touring pace after the album hit stores, and played a major American tour opening for Billy Talent. In 2008 the band released its second album, Hail Destroyer, which was followed by 2010's Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones, 2012's Dead Set On Living, 2015's Searching For Zero and 2018's The Spark That Moves. The band returned this spring with Psychic Jailbreak, their first album without founding guitarist Scott Middleton.

Brandon Williams makes resonant songs that capture isolation and resilience. As the songwriter behind , the Whitby, Ontario musician has made 3 unrelentingly perceptive albums culminating in the cathartic Suffer Summer, which is out January 13, 2022 via Deathwish and Dine Alone Records. The LP caps off an album trilogy that showcases both Williams’ emotional range as a lyricist but also his boundless love of outsider music. His 2018 debut Death Lust pulled from Unwound and The Smashing Pumpkins as he grappled with mortality while 2019’s Home Made Satan dealt in world-weary anxiety and Hum-like atmospherics. But Suffer Summer is a meditation on happiness, channeled through powerhouse riffs and undeniably potent choruses, sung with Mineral and Jimmy Eat World worn on his sleeve. It’s an album that shows how healing and staying content is hard but necessary work.
