#CMW Artist Showcase - Honduras

These four lads are rocking their way to Canadian Music Week. We exchanged some words with Honduras about their upcoming performance.

Hammer Records: Tell us what you think of when you think Canadian Music?
Honduras: Lots of great punk bands from Toronto (Metz, Fucked Up, Dilly Dally, etc).One of our favorite bands Wolf Parade being from Montreal and seemingly a new great band coming from there all the time. And the Canadian government giving artists money which is unheard of in the US.

Hammer Records: How did you get involved in Canadian Music Week?
Honduras: Fat White Family's manager was in touch with our manager and agent. He asked us to do Canadian Music Week so here we are! 

Hammer Records: What do you have planned for Canadian Music Week?
Honduras: Excited to see some of our favorite bands! We are playing Adelaide Hall on Friday May 6, 2016. Just gonna do our thing, be ourselves, we are pretty straight forward in that way. We like to put a lot of energy into our shows! 

Hammer Records: What message do you want to send to Canadians listening to your music?
Honduras: Thank you for listening to us. Come see us play when we are in Canada. We are just four good natured New York City boys trying to make some Canadian friends! 

Hammer Records: What do you have coming up? 
Honduras: We're releasing an EP, Gathering Rust, in early March. We're currently on tour with our amazing friends Sunflower Bean and will be touring down to SXSW, Treefort Fest and the west coast before we head back to Canada. Our music is for sale on bandcamp and follow us on instagram: hondurasband.
