Artist Of The Month: October 2022
For Fans Of: The Pretty Reckless, Metric
Fall is finally here and we are back with another brilliant band that you simply need to get on your radar - if you haven’t already, of course. This October, we are showing some love for Toronto rock duo Goodnight Sunrise.
Formed back in 2011, Goodnight Sunrise are an alternative rock two piece composed of Vanessa Vakharia on vocals and keytar and David Kochberg on guitar on vocals. The band formed through their love of catchy pop hooks paired with the raw power of classic rock, a match made in heaven.
Since their formation in 2011, the band have gone from strength to strength and performed their explosive live shows to over 300 audiences across Canada, the United States and Europe, opening up for acts like Bon Jovi, The Sheepdogs and Big Wreck. They self-released their concept debut Create/Destroy/Create in 2013 followed by their sophomore album Falling Awake in 2016.
The Brand New Album
The soul-gripping duo are gearing up to release their brand new album Against All Odds on October 7th and it is looking to be their biggest, boldest and best yet.
Against All Odds was produced by Brian Moncarz (Alice Cooper, Circa Survive), mastered by Brian Lucey (Green Day, Arctic Monkeys) and features Our Lady Peace members Duncan Coutts on bass and Jason Pierce on drums. The album features their latest singles ‘Wait For It’, ‘One Pill’ and many more.
For the new record, the band have drawn on inspiration from the likes of Foo Fighters, The Pretty Reckless and Jimmy Eat World and paired this with everything they’ve learnt over the the last ten years in terms of production and songwriting. Kochberg describes their upcoming release as “a salute to the rock music that inspired us.” We are so stoked to hear this one!
The powerhouse duo just dropped their latest single ‘Timesick’, a track reminiscing on times that have past and it’s that’s bound to get your head bopping and your feet tapping, trust us on this one! You can check the single out now on Spotify and Youtube.
The band are also performing a string of shows this October and November. They will be playing gigs across Ontario, so be sure to catch them out if you’re in the area! You can find out more about tour dates at www.goodnightsunrise.com.
And make sure to check out the show at Mills Hardware on Nov. 4th. The battle of the bands winner, Vilivant, will be opening the show.
