Hey guys! Have you heard bits and pieces of our album A Year's Supply Of Rabbit's Feet, but you're lacking the funds or record player for your very own copy? We understand! Times are tough. Hip artisan beers are expensive. And moody sorta-progish rock is not everyones cup of tea (even though it's our very favourite kind of tea, and we drink it constantly!). Either way, you can now download our album FOR FREE! That's right! ZERO DOLLARS. Stream it via our Facebook page, or download it from Bandcamp directly. Amazing! NXeW thinks you should download the album too. And if you don't take our advice, you should probably listen to them, right? What's old is new again!

What have we been up to? Well, we're in the process of recording 4 new songs and 4 new videos for those 4 new songs! Can't wait to unleash these to you. Working on a very limited super special package for these guys too! USB treasure chest? Secrets will soon be revealed....

In the meantime, you can hear these new songs LIVE in Toronto at The Garrison on Decemeber the 30th. The day before New Year's is the perfect night to party: it's all the fun of the weekend without any of those people that go weird and crazy when the clock strikes 12. And all the proceeds go to charity!

Boxing Day Special Festival & Food Drive Night 5 with White Suede / The Guest Bedroom / Cave Baby / The Lava & Ash / I.H.A.D. $5 or 3 non perishable food items. Proceeds go to the food bank. Hope to see you there!

Feast In The East 5 was an awesome time. And because the Dickens Street Theatre is two minutes from our practice lair, we left our van (Snowfist) at home and carted stuff over on a skid and a wagon like some kind of travelling family band. The bands were great, the sandwiches were great, the space was awesome, and there were freezies. Torontonians, this is definitely a series worth keeping up with! And at the end of the night Tim found these silky underthings draped over his bike handles. Just what he needed...

Flyers by Tad Michalak.

We're dusting off our guitars, shining up our keyboards, and playing a show. This is a good one too! You should come. Not only do you get a smorgasboard of good music, you also get to check out projections and eat food with your ticket (pressed sandwiches and salad)! Fun fact: this venue is about 3 minutes from where we practice. Let's have fun on the East Side together.

Curious minds might also want to check out an article The Grid recently did about the series.

-------Info from the Facebook Event-------

FEAST IN THE EAST is a monthly east end music, food & installation series.

At Dickens Street Theatre
35 Dickens St. (Dundas & Carlaw)
Toronto, ON
Friday, September 9 at 9:00pm


THE GUEST BEDROOM ( A bit prog, a bit post-punk, a bit dark, a bit dance-y. Toronto avant rock quartet has been making music since 2004 (whoa it's almost 2012!). Rumbling synth lines, jump and bounce against angular guitar jabs, sharp notes quiver out from behind thick synth concoctions. Singer Sandi Falconer's voice soars over the blaring, driving drum beats & synth hums that fill your ears like an empty church. A fun chaos grown out of a frantic pace. Check this!

Jesse Laderoute's every changing krautrock ensemble Solidifies it's line up & becomes a band! A serious undiscovered gem in Toronto's ever evolving music nebulous. Mini synth & guitar drones lead into to ominous beats & guitar whispers that shake and creep. With an almost hopeful pop sensibility buried under the deep compositions, Jesse's voice reaches out of the eerie environment he's constructed. Guitar wizardry and electronic bleeps & bloops grow under layers of rhythmic synth & drum patterns locking you in. Like a dream you can't escape, stuck in the nether world just below the surface. Krautrock lives!

One man band from Austin, TX plays it all guitar, drums, bass, and puts it together in a loop station math equation. Live drums along with looped everything, DFD powers through spazz rock compositions. His voice buzzes over noodle-y guitar guitar work. Pop hums juxtapose with speed punk drums & guitar thrashing. This guy rules big. He will also be joined by a band for some of his set!

JOHN MILNER YOU'RE SO BOSS ( Everyone's favourite weirdo-punk keeps it real. Spazz punk for the modern scumbag. Lightning fast speed, thrashed guitar cords, screeched out bleeps & bloops gloop out of circuit bent toys & electronics. Danielle's vocals yelps & spasms rupture in a choatic volcano of pure hecticity. Former east end coffee jobber becomes current east end resident & cool guy. Cred!

Projections & Environs by Cameron Lee!

pressed sandwich & salad with advance ticket from Circus Books & Music, The Film Buff and Soundscapes.

All Ages.

Hello dudes. What have we been up to lately? Well, we're currently recording a couple new songs: Magical Thinking & Fine Lines! We've enjoyed Tim's whiskey cocktails in the control room while recording vocals. We've tuned our guitars and used delay. Jim's worn all available hats: musician, engineer, and mixoligist. Any kind, rich strangers want to put out a 7inch?!

We've also got a new practice space on the East side. No more Drake platinum records to taunt our lack of commerical success - just concrete walls, forest murals, and spooky doll lamps! The lamp holds the power, and sometimes she gives some of her power to us.

And lastly, not one to wuss out on trying new things, Tim recently tackled the McGangBang. Rating: 6/10. Though a bit cumbersome, he said: "it tasted pretty good." The next McMashup will be the Quarter Flounder, brainchild of Rob Castle. Review to come...

Thanks for coming out to The Garrison for The Rival Boys release show! Pre show dinner and beers at The Lakeview, Rival Boys album themed cake for dessert, more drinks at The Garrison, magical power crystals courtesy of Wax Mannequin, and bands making noise. GOOD TIMES.

THE GUEST BEDROOM - Curses from Mitch Fillion ( on Vimeo.

We recently shot a couple live videos with Mitch (AKA Southern Souls) in our super secret East side clubhouse and this is one of them - Curses. Beers were drank, ivories were tickled, and good times were had. One more (new) song to come...

Make sure to check out the Southern Souls website for an impressive collection of A+ video and music.

Eleven was a total blast.

After consuming food and drinks at the home of ultimate fighting (Toby's), and taking a spill on the black ice (still feeling that one!) we played what was to be one of our most totally panicked sets in a while. Relaxing is definitely not what we're about! Also? Bruised Knees are the greatest.

Thank you to everyone that came out the The Rivoli the other night! Good times. The Rivoli has some pretty good stage warnings/signs. I guess it's a good thing that we didn't bring our confetti cannons or Courtney Love costumes. Happy New Year!
