THE STANDSTILLS SET TO RELEASE THEIR DEBUT LABEL FULL-LENGTH ALBUM BADLANDS
HITTING THE ROAD IN CANADA WITH MONSTER TRUCK
Toronto, ON – March 21, 2019 – The Standstills are gearing up to release their new album Badlands, this Friday March 22 through eOne Music. Described as The White Stripes body slammed by Queens Of The Stone Age, The Standstills have broadening their horizon and defining their craft with their debut label release. “It’s guitar driven, outlaw rock and roll,” lead singer and guitarist Jonny Fox declares. Drummer and singer Renee Couture defines the record as “If wild west Clint Eastwood and Belle Starr had a rock and roll baby.” The Canadian rock duo is already off to a great start with their latest singles including Wild, which reached #7 on Active Rock radio. The track is a hypnotic high-powered number with a magnetic and gritty guitar lick, featuring Couture’s mountainous drums all topped with Fox’s dynamic and vigorous vocal. The Standstills have paired these elements seductively with psychedelic imagery and video’s, putting this duo in the sights of trend setters and rockers alike.
This record follows the success of their 2015 EP, From The Devil’s Porch, featuring the breakout single, Orleans which reached #4 on active rock radio charts in Canada, with Rise of the Fall, top 10 and Shotgun, top 15. As a result, The Standstills were awarded Best New Rock Group at the Canadian Radio Music Awards and iTunes named it one of the best rock albums of the year.
In 2018, the band also received over one million streams on Spotify and performed a sold out show at the Reeperbahn festival held in Hamburg Germany. The group recently wrapped up a sixteen date tour across eight countries in Europe with The Lazy’s, and is currently hitting the road in Canada with Monster Truck for a series of dates.
