About this event

The Standstills feat. a special performance by Neil Sanderson (Three Days Grace) – AUGUST 5 – $15

Tune in online for an exclusive performance and interview hosted by the legendary Alan Cross, plus a chance to interact with the band in a live Q&A.

The Standstills are a Canadian duo that seductively pair elements of stoner rock and alternative hard rock. Mixed with psychedelic and wild west themes, this duo has made a name for themselves in the sights of trend setters and rockers alike.

Their first full length album “Badlands” under eOne Music, has reached a world wide audience. “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”. Their first single “Wild” set the record as the fastest charting top ten single in eOne Canadian history. And received over 1 million streams on spotify. Following their release the duo toured across Canada, USA, Europe and The United Kingdom. They have performed at festivals and arena’s as support for Eagles of Death Metal, Rival Sons, Lenny Kravitz and more.

This record follows the success of first EP in 2015 “From The Devil’s Porch” featuring “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 as well as iTunes naming it one of the best rock albums of the year.

Currently, the band is wrapping up their second full length under eOne Music which is set to release in 2022.
