Safe to Say
Safe to Say
Safe to Say has for some time been a band just trying to keep up with the swift current in their own heads. In the early years, they were a new yet vaguely familiar melody in their hometown of Markham, Ont. On the band’s debut full-length, With Everything In Between, they set out to prove they were serious. And then they did what demands unprecedented patience for a band just gaining ground: they took their time.

Today, Safe to Say are two years older and many years wiser. Newly backed by record labels SideOneDummy and New Damage, their latest self-produced effort Hiding Games emerges after two years of self-criticism and soul-searching as they tactfully crafted a set of songs that refuse to be pigeonholed. Critics called Hiding Games a "bold step in the right direction" (Exclaim) that "makes good on past potential" (Alt Press) and "(pushes) the boundaries of pop punk in an ambitious yet natural way" (New Noise). It all suggests a belief that Safe to Say are an artistic force that's only just borne its teeth.

With an energetic live show that's "grimy, tight and larger-than-life" (Exclaim), the band continues to share and connect with anyone, anywhere, who's willing to listen. No longer faced with the pressure to prove themselves, Safe to Say are free to become whatever they choose. And by now, they finally know who they are.

2016 will bring big things for Safe to Say having them added to one of the biggest alternative/metal festivals to come through Canada and the US. Vans Warped Tour will be one of many highlights of the year for sure. We can't see Safe to Say slowing down anytime soon.
Heavy Hearts
Heavy Hearts
Niagara on the Lake, Ontario four-piece rock group Heavy Hearts are ready to make an impression, and they're capable of it too. Since the group released their debut EP back in 2013, Heavy Hearts have been churning out new and exciting sounds. Having pulled from the golden days of 2000's emo punk alongside influences from 90's alternative rock, Heavy Hearts are ready to take their well-executed familiar sound and bring it into new territory with effects-laden guitars, hooky vocals, and a fuller sound than ever heard in their previous material. Their new Self Titled EP, being released March 4th on New Damage Records, will serve as the canvas on which Heavy Hearts will show off their newly refined sound, and they will be following this release with a springtime tour of their home Ontario and next door neighbour Quebec.
