Today for New Music Monday we decided to tell you about an artist from Canada that we are expecting big things from! They are currently on tour with The Spill Canvas and have been hitting cities all across the country. If you watch our interview with The Spill Canvas ( http://tunedinpress.com/interview-the-spill-canvas) you can here singer Nick Thomas say, “I feel like Selfish Things are going to go far. They just have this something about them. It’s cool…just the whole vibe of the band.”
This Toronto five piece rock group includes Alex Biro (Vocals/Guitar/Piano), Mike Ticar (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Cam Snooks (Rhythm Guitar), Burton Lavery (Bass), and Jordan Tracks (Drums). Dedicated to showing true and pure honesty in their music, Alex Biro founded Selfish Things. The music offers a pop rock side with an additional strong piano that can’t be labeled anything other than pure raw sound and emotion.
Their EP Vertical Love was released earlier this year with A Wolf At Your Door Records, Silva Screen Records, and under Raw Power Management. The guys had the opportunity to work with James Paul Wisner who helped produce the EP and has worked with other popular artists such as Dashboard Confessional, Underoath, and Paramore. The EP features six tracks and an astounding amount of honesty and openness in every song.
- 8147 Mulholland Terrace
- Rust Cohle Never Sleeps
- Without You
- Five Years
In regards to his writing, Biro has said, “I think it’s really okay to engage with darkness, to acknowledge it, despite the fact that people run from it….I really feel like our words connect to people in every way imaginable…I think it’s the first time in my life that I’ve really just been honest with myself, my own suffering and the story I want to tell.”
The guys have shared stages with other popular artists like The Spill Canvas and Simple Plan, and were also on a date of this years final Vans Warped Tour! They have just a few days left on the Part of the Hive Tour and then will share the stage with popular punk band Story Untold (http://tunedinpress.com/interview-story-untold/ ) this November/December in Canada. It’s basically going to be a Canadian Rock Super Show that we wish we could see in the States!
