Tokyo Police Club – “Hercules”

Newmarket’s favorite sons, Tokyo Police Club, are back with their first new music in a while, with a new record TPC coming this fall!
 

The Interrupters – “She’s Kerosene”

The final Warped Tour is coming up July 17th, so get your punk fill and be sure to see this LA band, The Interrupters. The worked with legend Tim Armstrong from Rancid on their latest record, get some more ska punk in your life!

 

 

The Beaches – “Gold”

We’ve been boasting The Beaches for some time now, but after their opening slot for the Foo Fighters at the Rogers Centre this week they are anything but a secret. Get pumped and crank this one!
 

St. Paul & The Broken Bones – “Apollo”

The last time this soul band out of Birmingham, Alabama came to town they sold out the Danforth and turned it into an epic party! My guess is it’ll happen again October 7th when Saint Paul and the Broken Bones return to the Danforth!
 

 

Sloan – “Have Faith”

27 years in and still nailing it, Sloan’s 12th studio album 12 was just long listed for the Polaris Music Prize and saw every member dividing up writing and singing duties – 3 songs each!
