“At times dark, but always pure”
Forged in Western Canada, The Carbons are a groove rock band known for their multi-climactic live shows, deep powerful vocals and huge groovy drums. The trio just returned from their first international tour in Australia and on January 17th, they released their most anticipated single yet: “Sleep”. Less than a week into the release, the single was featured on Global News and received impressive reviews on several media outlets. “While the band doesn’t stray too far from their traditional sound, the new escalator of a song sees [The Carbons] tip-toe into previously untouched territory with crooning guitars, a lulling tempo and topped off with a sprinkle of classical finesse....the track takes you into a state of insomnia and is equipped with all of the emotions that come with it— including the mind’s hyperactive tendencies and utter exhaustion...” - Savannah Bagshaw at KelownaNow. The Carbons are currently preparing to release more music 2020...and US tour dates.
Their debut LP August Ash is a 10-song groove rock ride that explores the shallower waters of young adulthood and progressively dives into deeper human challenges like mental health and temptation. With songs such as “Jerry, Can I Dance with Your Sister?”, “All I Need”, and “Stuck in Your Head”, the trio delivers melodies that grab you by the earlobes and lyrics that tickle your soul. Their latest singles “Black Mirror” and “Comforts That Kill” are a continuation of the dive. Produced by Juno-nominee (The Glorious Sons) John Angus MAcDonald of The Trews, the tracks uncover topics such as “...the common fear that our best years may be behind us.”
Off-stage, The Carbons can be found shredding some gnar, ripping through waves, and revving motorcycles through the Canadian Rockies. They often end the day with a craft beer in hand, a movie quote battle and depending on the number of beers, a lengthy conversation about all the world’s problems. Their environment fuels them with inspiration and they are already preparing the next album.
The Carbons released their debut LP August Ash in May 2018 and their unique “groove rock” sound has spread like wildfire ever since. Only eight months after the release, they returned from their cross-Canada 10,000km Tour and concluded 2018 by opening up for Spotify giants Pop Evil and Royal Tusk. In that time, they also wrote and recorded three new singles and “Black Mirror” has now earned them over 12,000 listeners and 120,000 plays on Spotify alone. Their much anticipated follow up single "Comforts That Kill" was co-written with two of the members from The Trews and was released September 2019.
The Carbons tour Canada relentlessly. Over 100 shows deep and six provinces across, they have shared the stage with Canadian Legends such as The Trews and Sloan. In that time they landed on legendary stages such as The Horseshoe Tavern, The Roxy, and The Gateway and have earned radio play and interviews on several commercial radio stations across Canada including X92.9, Power 104, The Wolf 106.9, and Rock 97.9.
