Territories formed in 2015 in Calgary with the reunion of four long-time friends and prior members of western Canadian punk rock staple, Knucklehead. After two decades of playing honest music, they continue to focus their collective efforts on writing songs with thoughtful lyrics and compelling melodies. Their upcoming debut self-titled album will be out on Pirates Press Records in August 2018.
The Vicious Cycles (Vancouver)
Over the course of two 7 inches and 2 full length records, you’ll find elements of classic 70’s punk, garage rock and maybe even some wild 50’s proto punk occupying space in the Cycles’ sound. But all in all, these dudes are disciples of rock ‘n’ roll’s timeless gospel. Expect raw, gritty anthems about being a burn out and doing burn outs on your bike.
Downer Dazey Pop with members of:
Empty Heads, Licorice, and PMMA
Some say punk.....
Loud, fast and snotty, Vanta might as well have stepped right out of 1981. Hoisting the black flag and setting the engines to full throttle, their sound is the stink of a mosh pit and an elbow to the face of middle-class life. They’re cheap, dirty and foul-mouthed—just the way we like them. - https://www.sledisland.com/2017/vanta
