Kitchener, Ontario based The Decay have added a new song, “The Other Face (M4M)” to their bandcamp page as a free download. The song comes from their upcoming split with friends Wayfarer (or Decayfarer, if you will). The split LP is due out from our pals over at Juicebox Recording Co. on April 26th. Start counting down the days.
Check out “The Other Face (M4M)” right here.
519punkvids continues to bring you some of the best quality HD performances from Southern Ontario, and the newest batch of videos is no disappointment. The videos feature The Flatliners playing live at The Wax in Kitchener, Ontario, the same night I had the opportunity to sit down and interview them.
I’d like to thank Erik O’neil of 519punkvids for his consistency and passion in his work. Take a couple minutes to check out his Youtube page and watch some great videos of Orphan Choir, Wayfarer, O Pioneers!!!, RVIVR, Chuck Ragan, Tim Barry, Lemuria, and many more.
Kitchener, Ontario’s Wayfarer have just earlier today posted a blog entry detailing the future of the band. Unfortunately for us, the future isn’t looking so bright, but there is a small light at the end of this tunnel. The band confirmed that at the very least, they wouldn’t be playing shows for a while, and if they ever do, it won’t be with the same lineup.
So on September 18th we’ll be playing for the last time with the current line-up. Music will continue to be made under the name Wayfarer and everything will be released for free via JuiceBox recording. There might be the odd show every now and then with a rotating band, so we’ll see what happens. As for now check out the show on the 18th, it will be KOI Music Festival in downtown Kitchener. Think of SCENE Fest but with bands you actually want to see.
As well as further detailing their appearance at KOI Music Festival.
I don’t think the schedule has been released yet but our stage is pretty rad. The Decay, Junior Battles, !Attention!, Lemuria, Blacklist Royals, Orphan Choir, Mockingbird Wish Me Luck. It’s going to be a good time. Tickets are $25 bucks and it gets you into all 12 venues all day. Email us if you need tickets.
In addition to the blog posting, Kyle Krische (frontman of Wayfarer, drummer of Mockingbird Wish Me Luck) provided me with a bit more detail via email.
Everyone is just super busy with other stuff. We all have projects either taking up more time than expected or just naturally becoming things that require more commitment. Like I said, there will still be music released under Wayfarer when I have the time but as for now it’s not a huge priority.
Wayfarer most recently released their first full length, both for free download and physical sale via Toronto’s own Juicebox Recording Co. The album is one of my early predications for album of the year, and you can download it (for free) here.
Mockingbird Wish Me Luck is a four-piece punk rock band from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. In the summer of 2009 they released the Goodbye Debris EP, which has since been rereleased by Dine Alone Records as a digital download. Mockingbird Wish Me Luck just signed to Dine Alone Records in the Spring of 2010, and Patrick McEachnie recently had the chance to meet up with them after a gig to discuss some questions regarding, but not limited to, their recent signing.
