Metric – “Dark Saturday”

It’s been almost three years since Metric released their last studio album Pagans In Vegas, since then the band has been busy with side projects AND working on a new release, plus, let’s not forget their great headlining set at Field Trip! Here’s the first taste of what’s to come, with lots of guitars and some sweet distortion.


Shade – “Controller”

Hamilton is a hotbed of rock and roll talent, and here to add to the fine list of rock bands from the Hammer, Shade!


Twenty One Pilots – “Jumpsuit”

After a year off, Twenty One Pilots is back with this new track and a world tour… that somehow forgot about Canada (we’ll keep you posted as to when Twenty One Pilots will be in town). Here’s the scoop so far, the 5th album Trench will be out October 5th and here’s the first new track for you!


Jules – “Before You Picked Her”

Let’s get local! Hailing from Oakville, Jules is just starting to get some attention and lucky you, you can see her perform this one live great gig July 21st at the Beaches.


Lord Huron – “Never Ever”

Lord Huron will be in town Sony Center July 25th and have had a lot of luck soundtracking moments in pop culture. Of the many tracks to make it on TV and in movies, it was when their song “The Night We Met” made it into the soundtrack of Thirteen Reasons Why that changed a lot for this band. Well, let’s dive deeper into Lord Huron’s catalogue with this new one.
