BALCONYTV TORONTO IS BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE UNDERGROUND GARAGE
PRESENTED BY NOEL COPEMAN http://www.undergroundgarage.cahttp://www.indieweek.com
FILMED DURING INDIE WEEK CANADA 2011!
At a time when many bands 'polish' their sound so routinely with digital technology, both live and on record, Hollowick (formerly Rides Again) are a bit of a rarity -- a road ready rock band in the classic sense of the words who've relentlessly honed their chops and their sound the old fashioned way.
In the three years since the release of Into Existence, their 2007 debut album as Rides Again, Oshawa, Ontario based brothers Nathan (guitars/lead vocals) and Chad Peyton (bass/vocals) have covered a fair bit of ground; playing in excess of 200 shows across Canada on their own and in support of high profile acts including The Trews, Three Days Grace, Theory of a Deadman and Hedley, breaking the top 20 on Canadian rock radio and prompting millions of hits on their Myspace page with their singles Wonder Why and Infected. In addition, the band has garnered critical acclaim as one of Billboard Magazine's Top Emerging Artists in 2008 and winning nominations for a 102.1 The Edge Casby's and a Canadian Radio Music Award in the category of Best New Rock Group.
Over the decade the Peyton brothers have been playing together they've become a blazingly tight musical unit. Now, with a new name, Hollowick, new lead guitar player Luke LeDoux, drummer Frank Goerz and a freshly inked deal with Aquarius Records, Hollowick admit they've pushed the reset button in a big way for their follow up record, Beautiful People. But even with all the changes, at the core their ethic and their sound remain honest, straightforward and raw.http://www.hollowickmusic.com
