Is the new single from the boys originally from Thunder Bay. They have criss-crossed Canada numerous times already this year, touring with The Trews, The Dudes, as well as their own headlining shows, gaining acclaim and winning over audiences everywhere they go.

Their debut EP, “Let It Sleep” (see our review here), a precursor to a full-length album to be released later in 2012, is an emotive working-class rock record with songs primarily about the culture shock of a big city and surviving there. “Blame It On The Good Times” was written about Toronto’s Dakota Tavern hideaway, hanging out until last call, soaking up the inspired music. “We can stay here with the rounders and listen to the Lo-Fi,” sings Matt Fratpietro. “It’s about going out on the town and having fun and getting swept away in all the downtown ruckus,” he explains.

They have more tour dates this summer (they’ll open for Trooper at the CNE in Toronto on Aug 25th) – and they like a good Slip and Slide.
