Dead Fibers (Edmonton)
A megalomaniac gorges himself on a number of toxic substances and stumbles into another consecutive night of dehydrated, tooth-grinding madness. The soundtrack to his evening: Dead Fibres’ forthcoming release “Disgusting People with Disgusting Motives”. The album is a brash, self-destructive and introspective piece that is at all times loud and chaotic. With this release the band sought to create an album that was consistent not only sonically, but also thematically. “Disgusting People with Disgusting Motives” deals with the baser elements of humanity that are driven by vice and lust, those of which that can be found by making a trip over to the wrong end of town. It is a filthy and grimey exposé of these elements as well as a passé cry for help. “Disgusting People with Disgusting Motives” is not to be missed if you’re looking to revel in the nastier side of life. Just be weary of the hangover that is sure to follow.
Dead Fibres were begotten within the booze-flooded months (and years) of directionless anxiety following the conclusion of high school and out of this monotonous milieu they have managed to birth a distinctive blend of grunge, punk and psychedelia that is both aggressive and rhythmically driven. In late 2014 Dead Fibres dropped their self-titled debut, which was backed up with a Canada-wide tour in 2015. This summer will witness the second Dead Fibres’ Canadian Tour wherein the band will attack an expanded number of cities, bringing with them an updated sound and vision.
Incredible Women (St. Johns) (St. Johns)
“Derm Kean and An Incredible Woman deliver. They take over the bar, they consume your attention , and they obliterate everything but you, the music, and the small radius of people dancing directly beside you.”-Chad Pelley,The Overcast .
Derm Kean and An Incredible Woman are a four piece rock band hailing from Canadian cultural hub, St. John's, Newfoundland. The band released their debut record "Incredible" in the fall of 2016 and have been busy on the road sharing their craft with the rest of Canada. Continuously determined to branch out, the group are deep in preparation on bringing what they have to other parts of the world, and particularly have their sights set on touring Europe and the United States.
Start to finish, their debut record “Incredible” is unstoppable. The band wastes no time drenching its audience in squealing guitars, ripping bass, bombastic drums and a tasteful dash of synthesizer. Derm's vocal prowess may take one of many forms, from fluent hometown punk, to dynamic and harmonically tiered ballads.
Derm Kean and An Incredible Woman waste no time. The band is currently working on their sophomore record at Electrical Audio with renowned sound engineer Steve Albini. A release date and title has yet to be determined, so stay tuned.
