Rock ‘N Roll, Made In Canada
The mission to bring alternative rock back to the mainstream began in 2013 for Vintage Slang. Baseball teammates Matt, Mike and Av realized they had the makings of a great band in their batting order, and added guitarist Dustin to complete a line up that set out to create potent rock riffs just like the ones they all grew up listening to. Vintage Slang may be from the old school of rock ‘n roll, but their classic influences create a unique and modern sound that will excite your rock ‘n roll senses. The band’s first single, “Weighted”, is already receiving air play on various Ontario radio stations. After 2 years of honing their sound on the stages of Northern Ontario, Vintage Slang’s debut album, “Standing Still,” dropped on February 20, 2016. The songs on “Standing Still” led the group to win the Q92.7 Rock Band Rumble.
Two years later, “Broken Town” was released and saw a string of shows that included opening for acts such as the Trews, Prism, Honeymoon Suite, and Buckcherry.
In the midst of the Covid quarantine, the guys distance recorded a cover of “Where Have All the Good People Gone?” originally by Canadian Rock Icon Sam Roberts. It was also during this time that new bassist Connor Mitchell joined the group (formerly of Blackwood Sinners fame).
Currently, Vintage Slang is quarantining and writing songs for their next release.
