For the last year, Bend Sinister have maintained an unrelenting pace of energetic, refreshing, fun infused, brand of Rock N Roll all over the world. Supporting their critically acclaimed album Animals, which has reached top 75 on the CMJ charts, top 10 on the Canadian Earshot charts, and number one on CBC 3 in Canada to name a few, and they aren’t slowing down anytime soon.
Hitting over 10 countries in 2014, from successful outings at SXSW, CMJ, Hard Rock Hell, the Canadian Festival circuit and making a fan out of legendary drummer Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold), who has taken the band out on the road with his project Flying Colors in America, and BigElf in Europe.
Features in Prog Magazine, Bass Guitar Magazine, and pulling nomination for Songwriters of the Year at this years Western Canadian Music Awards, as well as the Limelight Award in Prog, are just a glimpse into the future of this rare, anthemic, rock show known as Bend Sinister.
Bend Sinister began with the heart and soul known as Dan Moxon, who’s vocal gymnastics, paired with his frenetic, imaginative keyboard pace, has solidified him as one of the most memorable, captivating front men in Canada today.
Joined by a murderers row of Rock N Roll personalities, including the tone explosion Joseph Blood on guitar, the fur with the fuzz Matt Rhode on bass guitar, the ferocious Dicky Neptune crushing the drums and rounding up the line up, the trumpet blasting, tambourine queen, Kristy-Lee Audette. They team up to provide a fun filled dance party taking you on a journey reminding us why we believe in Rock N’ Roll.
All we know is that they love playing. And more and more people are finding out that they love listening.
