Hard hitting pop-punkers For The Weekend (Calgary, AB)

Synth-rock band Nightbox (Toronto, ON/Ireland)

High energy pop-rockers Slow Motion Victory (Brantford, ON)

 

“Since being on DISCOVERED, For The Weekend has grown so much as a band and as people. We have been so fortunate to have been given this opportunity to showcase our music across Canada” said Myles of For The Weekend. “With this opportunity we have opened so many doors that never seemed imaginable. With DISCOVERED closing in and all the excitement building up, we are ready to hit Canada full force.”

“We think it was a great experience being part of the DISCOVERED series. When we moved to Toronto in early 2010, it was almost like starting from scratch for us. It was an entirely different market where few people had heard of us” said Nick Bitove from Nightbox. “Having DISCOVERED document our endeavours early on was great as it will allow us to look back to see how we’ve progressed as a band since moving to Toronto.”
