About Billy Talent
Toronto-based rockers Billy Talent (Warner Music Canada) confirmed today that they will interrupt their upcoming US Headlining Tour to appear on The 2007 JUNO Awards broadcast. Their self-titled major label debut in 2003 established the band as a pure fist-in-the-air rock n’ roll group. The album went triple platinum and garnered the band four Top 10 singles, one JUNO Award in 2004 for New Group of the Year (sponsored by FACTOR and Canada’s Private Radio Broadcasters) and two more in 2005 (Album of the Year and Group of the Year). The band has toured Canada, Europe and the U.S. playing in renowned rock festivals such as Warped and the UK’s Reading and Leeds festivals. In June 2006, band members Aaron Solowoniuk, Benjamin Kowalewicz, Ian D’Sa and Jonathan Gallant released their sophomore album Billy Talent II. The album, fuelled by hit singles “Devil In A Midnight Mass,” “Red Flag” and “Fallen Leaves,” debuted at No. 1 in Canada and has since reached double platinum status. The group is currently in the midst of a major-market Canadian tour and recently announced it will headline a15-city U.S. tour in March and April, 2007.

Since being nominated for New Group of the Year (sponsored by FACTOR and Canada’s Private Radio Broadcasters) at The 2004 JUNO Awards and landing the Number 1 spot on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers Chart, Three Days Grace has gone nowhere but up.

  • i was happy

    I’ve just been letting everything pass me by , but oh well. What can I say? I’ve just been hanging out doing nothing, but eh. Basically not much notable going on. My life’s been completely dull these days. Not much on my mind lately, but pfft.

  • found cheap price

    What are the real implications to huge debt beyond leaving it a younger generation of tax payers? Reason I ask is that I argued with a staunch Republican after the presidential election, and he asked me “what do you care about the national debt?”, guess he was referring to my age (60 +). And being Mongo (not well informed), I did not have a good answer for him.
