"Explosive, energetic and raw" are the sounds of The Stereo Hoax, an upcoming band ruminating from Canada’s very own Toronto city. When hearing them live, one is to experience a wall of sound that takes on a lifeform of its own and seduces you into a state of dance rhapsody. All this, from four individuals that started from very different musical backgrounds that now unite to form a style that is congruent with post-punk/rock/reggae features which fuses to form the basis for new music today.
The outfit is set to go into B-Town Studios in March this year and begin recording their first disc with Justin Koop who has worked with such notaries as Billy Talent and Finger Eleven to name a few. What should transpire is a CD that sounds dynamic, raw and contains a diversity of high energy-driving musical songs which mirrors the spirit of their live performance. Their most lovable track "Friendcard" was recorded to be specially featured on Edge102.1 and is today their most popular song. Another track "Death Cult Trench Coat", pays respect to the Virginia Tech Shootings and is gaining fast in popularity among their fans. One can find issues of everyday life, politics and love to be the ingredients for the lyrics of most of their songs, written with a honest prose approach.
The music has evolved much since the conception of the project and the new songs showcase a unit that has grown together in both music and life. Look out for the flaming space monkey that heralds as the band’s logo and mascot. In an age where new sounds and endemic rhythms are at the heart of peoples musical palettes, you can find The Stereo Hoax pioneering such a mission and breaking new ground, all in the tradition of good music.
