TOUR with KASADOR: It’s been a blast playing with the fellas in Kasador for the last month. We’ve made some new friends and we’re looking forward to playing with them again down the road. If you get a chance, check out their self-titled EP in the usual places, or at one of their shows this summer. We’ve got one left: April 21 at the John Street Pub in Arnprior.

NEW SINGLE & VIDEO: CHEMICAL LOW
Chemical Low was released on streaming services on March 24th, 2017. You can see the video in Quebec on Musique Plus, or right here on YouTube. This version is a remixed version of the one that appears on Desert Star. The bones are the same, but we’ve added some ear candy.
SUMMER DATES: Lots of action happening at JTB HQ – we’ll be announcing more summer shows over the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
Big thanks to everyone who has helped get the band on the road this spring and summer. Without the support of the Ontario Media Development Corporation, Canada Council For The Arts, Cameron’s Brewing, All Natural Music, the amazing people at our label Aporia, D’Addario this tour wouldn’t have been possible. And a big high-five to our crew who make our lives easier on the road and deliver us safely to and from each show.
