88 MILE TRIP - Blame Canada EP (2017)

Vancouver's 88 MILE TRIP are very proud Canadians, they are so proud that they have put together a new 5 track EP entitled 'Blame Canada' covering songs in tribute to Canadian rock and roll music of years past such as Bachman Turner Overdrive, Neil Young, Red River, The Stampeders plus Doug and The Slugs. The best part about this EP besides it all celebrating Canuck music, is that it's available for FREE DOWNLOAD via the band's bandcamp page at https://88miletrip.bandcamp.com.

The EP was created as a fun salute to the greats who laid the foundation for 88 MILE TRIP and other modern Canadian bands. The connection came full circle when, while recording the EP, Doug And The Slugs co-founder and keyboard player Simon Kendall got wind that the band were covering “Tomcat Prowl”, that he came down to the studio to lay down some keys on it.

The band explains the story behind the EP:

"The idea for the Blame Canada EP was spawned while we were on tour promoting our full length album “Through The Thickest Haze”. On our drive from Calgary AB to Cranbrook, BC, a song came on the radio in the van with this incredibly heavy riff that was good enough to be on any of the first four Black Sabbath records. It turned out to be a Bachman Turner Overdrive song called “Not Fragile”. After that we got thinking, if we had never heard this song before, how many other awesome Canadian rock songs have we missed out on. That thought turned into many hours of beer drinking plus record spinning, and eventually the idea to cover some songs we had discovered. We hope that Canadian music fans, young and old alike, enjoy this tribute to some of the best music our country has ever produced."

A unique style of heavy music with references to many different bands and genres and a dystopic lyrical universe about the human decadence. NORÐ reflects the nordic feeling with their combination of dreamy melodies, tight riffing and headbanger breaks.

NORÐ was formed in 2013 in Odense, Denmark. Originally formed by members from Denmark, Faroe Islands and Iceland with the ambition of creating heavy music with a nordic feeling combining dreamy soundscapes, tight riffing and headbanger breaks.
Within a year the first set was written and the band started playing live gigs. The crowd really embraced the music from the very beginning and recorded material was in demand. In 2016 the recording of the debut EP ”Alpha” began at Molten Rock Studio in Odense with Jesper Egeskov Sommerby. By the time the single Rosehip Garden hit the internet around christmas 2016 there was immediate international interest and the single received airplay in United States, Australia, Spain and other countries. ”Alpha” will be released digitally on March 3rd 2017 via Inverse Records.

The band is Rückwater, a three-headed stoner rock monster hailing from Tampere, Finland. The record is Bonehead. Heartfelt lyrics, strong tunes, two asskickin’ lead singers and the boogie that varies from furious to mellow makes this record worth of listening.

Rückwater has shared a stage with names like Joey Belladonna and stoner legend Karma To Burn, so this really is a band to watch out for.
