show, Disband. Following the release of their self-titled, debut album their popularity exploded. On the strength of
singles like ‘Summer Girl’ (3x Platinum) ‘Throw Ya Hands Up’ (2x Platinum) and ‘Turn It Up’ (Platinum), the band
began touring relentlessly and ultimately racked up JUNO Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop
Album in 2010.
Featuring original members Patrick Kordyback (lead vocals), guitarists Miles Holmwood and Robb Chalifoux, and
drummer Aaron Verdonk, their latest release finds the band expanding dramatically on their signature sound. But
while the record showcases Kordyback’s growth as a songwriter and his willingness to expand on the styles and
sounds he brings to his writing, lyrically it’s rooted in the experiences from Stereos’ first go around as well as what’s
happened in their lives since then.
As ever, Stereos’ music defies easy categorization. “We’ve always mixed and mashed up sounds and genres you
don’t necessarily hear together. But on this record, we really wanted to capture the sound of the band live, and I felt
like I had the freedom to put all my influences and experiences into a final product that I hope will speak to literally
anybody who hears it.”
The result is a record that’s relentless and compelling from stem to stern, a new single and forthcoming album that
finds Kordyback, the band, and JUNO Award-winning, Grammy-nominated producer/engineer, David Mohacsi
channeling the band’s sound and influences past and present to create a tight set of chill-inducing pop tracks
brimming with hooks and no holds barred performances. Put bluntly, it sounds like Stereos never took a day off the road or out of the studio.
