    1990future

    Alternative Rock

    1990future is a Toronto-based, four piece alternative rock band that delivers a tasty punch (POW!) of dirty rock (BAM!) influenced by 1990’s alternative and 1970's rock and soul. There's a taste of Neil Young, The Clash, Weezer, David Bowie, Elton John, The Pixies, and Velvet Underground – basically everyone who is amazing and no one who is not. Listeners will receive a 100% money back guarantee for a wall of face-melting guitar (ZING!) and a pulsing rhythm section (OOMPH!). Oh, and good songs too.

    This past summer 1990future played the wonderfully unique Wolfe Island Music Festival, aside Born Ruffians, Said the Whale, Land of Talk, The Franklin Electric, and more! A mainstay of Toronto rock clubs, they have played over thirty venues, including the Legendary Horseshoe Tavern, el Macambo, Velvet Underground and the Cameron House, as well as NXNE and Canadian Music Week.

    When they’re not rocking the kids, you’ll find them hanging out in kitchens, ‘cause duh, that’s where the party, and food, is at.

  • Excuses Excuses

    Excuses Excuses

    Rock

    Hailing from the outskirts of Canada's music capitol, Toronto, ON; Excuses Excuses is an electrifying, young, punk rock ‘n' roll trio packed with raw passion, energy, and attitude. Through their poetic lyrics, hooky riffs, and explosive live performances; the band, consisting of Kyle (vocals & guitar), Trevor (bass), and Jay (drums), is driven to empower millennials to find strength in self-expression and individualism, and encourages people to live their lives to the fullest potential in our restrictive, modern society. Since 2016 the band has been developing their version of punk-infused rock and roll inspired by Canadian modern-punk bands, like PUP and The Dirty Nil, along with all your favourite stadium rock bands like Green Day, Billy Talent, and Foo Fighters.

    Throughout 2017, the band toured throughout Ontario and Quebec honing their incendiary live show, catching the opportunity to play alongside many inspirational Canadian bands, such as Bleeker, Texas King, Ivory Hours, Scenic Route to Alaska, We Were Sharks, Amberwood, and many more. Currently, Excuses Excuses is gearing-up to release two new singles and a new EP that were recorded at the legendary Chalet Studios with producer Justin Meli. The EP contemplates life changes, mental illness, drug abuse, and the uncertainty that revolves around becoming adults in modern society; and it is set to begin releasing in early March, 2018.

    A World In Pictures

    Post-Hardcore

    A World In Pictures is heavy emotional driven band. Based out of the basements of Scarborough with Ollie White on guitar, Lukie Duke on bass, and Jay Groov on drums they come together to make things just seem right.

  • King Park

    King Park

    Alternative Rock

    King Park is Timon Moolman (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Tristan Persaud (lead guitar, backing vocals), Ty Heemskerk (bass, backing vocals) and Daniel Jamaquio (percussion). Formed in a tiny basement in September of 2011, this group of long-time friends, centered in Hamilton ON, has recently solidified their identity as King Park and offer a fresh take on the alternative rock and post-hardcore genres. When frontman Timon found and played with musicians with similar journeys of musical influence during his college years, this quartet came together. The four are collectively inspired by a range of genres—from pop-punk intensity (Blink 182, A Day to Remember) to emotive acoustic indie (Damien Rice, Right Away Great Captain) to clean, lyrically potent alternative rock (Radiohead, Manchester Orchestra) all the way to charged up post-hardcore and hardcore (Counterparts, As Cities Burn, Brand New, Architects, Pianos Become the Teeth)—and together brought the genre-bending and innovative King Park to fruition. 

    Their first E.P. entitled “The Light I Can’t See” was released November 3, 2017. Recorded with Glen Watkinson of Sheepdog Studios, this E.P. pushes the limits of what these young Hamiltonians can do. The passionately expressive vocals and inventive sound displayed on their debut E.P. reflect the coming-of-age and burgeoning artistic output of their home city.
