This is the 3rd lp from Steve Adamyk Band. If you’ve been following them from the start you know what to expect: powerful punk with catchy melodies. Not reinventing the wheel but definitely making it faster and smoother.

Sonic Avenues may be from Montreal but they are an Ottawa band at heart. Brothers in arms with the Steve Adamyk Band, the two have toured Europe together twice and share a member. They released the incredible Television Youth lp on Dirtnap last year.

Followed by NIGHT MOVES with DJ Pat Johson!
