Right out of North Bay, Break The Trend will be performing at this years Canadian Music Week. We chatted with them about their upcoming performance.
Hammer Records: Tell us what you think of when you think Canadian music?
Break The Trend: As fans of rock music, we see the industry booming with great authentic rock n roll bands like Monster Truck, The Glorious Sons, and The Sheepdogs. In terms of other genres, we have some great artists such as Drake, The Weeknd, and Bieber. Who are just killing it! It's a great time to be a part of what seems to be a revolutionary period in the Canadian music industry.
Hammer Records: How did you get involved in Canadian Music Week?
Break The Trend: We're a hard working band that has done a lot in a short time. In the past year we've been on tour, played over 20 shows, had commercial hits rotation radio play with our single Hey Darlin', and have released "Talk Is Cheap" our debut e.p. Growing up in Canada, it's every Canadian musicians dream to play a showcase at CMW. After putting in the time and cutting our teeth, it was the logical next step in our musical journey.
Hammer Records: What do you have planned for Canadian Music Week?
Break The Trend: We're going to show some fucking passion! Far too often bands forget, it's all about the love of music. Raw emotion has been lacking in this industry for far too long. In terms of actually saying what we're going to do, we'll see you at the show.
Hammer Records: What message do you want to send to Canadians listening to your music?
Break The Trend: We want to show people that Rock N' Roll is still worth something; that real art is not a disposable form of expression.
Hammer Records: What is on the horizon for Break The Trend?
Break The Trend: Currently, we're in the midst of writing for our next release. Also we're focusing on getting out in the GTA more often (which is sometimes a struggle for a northern Ontario band). Finding our music is easy:
