Steve Adamyk Band “Third”
BOOM! Canada’s Capital City veteran punks The Steve Adamyk Band are back at it again, unleashing their third album, aptly titled, Third. The last two years have taken SAB on tour in Europe (twice), to SXSW (twice), Awesome Fest, Sled Island and beyond. Late 2011 saw the first line-up change, bringing Dave Forcier of Pregnancy Scares to the kit, along with Seb Godin of Sonic Avenues on bass into the mix, keeping Dave Williams active in the band with studio endeavors. The formula is the same as always; bringing a punk edge to classic power-pop, with help from a strong modern garage influence. You could call it aggressive pop-punk, keeping it tight and far from over-produced. The formula is simple – no one is trying to re-invent the wheel. With that said, staying clear of cheese and cliches. Third is the bands most solidified recording to date. Don’t miss them coming to your town in 2013.
