ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

CONSTANTINES' music, as well as their thundering and inspired live shows, has continually earned the band a loyal following from both music writers and music fans alike, drawing comparisons to The Clash, Bruce Springsteen, Fugazi and Nick Cave. In September 2007, Constantines, Canada's hardest working band, inked a worldwide record and management deal with fellow Torontonians Arts & Crafts. Speculations began to swirl after an on stage announcement was made by band-leader Bryan Webb at 2007's V-Festival on Toronto Island. Formerly signed to Subpop in the U.S., Constantines first rocked their way out of Guelph, Ontario, in 1999, issuing their initial, eponymous full-length. The album's raw, moody mix of arty dub-punk with traditional rock energy and pop angles was immediately and roundly embraced. Constantines topped the college radio charts in North America. With OBITS: stripped and rampaging rock from ex-Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu guys, pushed to the limit by stuttery rockabilly walking bass and fanned into flames by frantic bursts of guitar with a fondness for classic rock and blues.
