Wide Mouth Mason is back on tour, Jordan Cook has now hit the international festival lineup and the Sheepdogs have just announced they have the Number One album in Canada. Saskatoon is starting to hit its full musical stride and One Bad Son are feeling the same.
After eight years together, the Bridge City’s DIY rock band get to start all over. They have just inked a deal with Vancouver label 604 Records, finished a new album produced by Default drummer Danny Craig and moved out to the West Coast to keep up the pace.
Although it is their third full length album, lead singer Shane Volk feels slightly otherwise: “There’s a reason why it’s self-titled,” explains Volk. “We really feel like this is the new starting point. There was everything that happened before the release of this record and everything that’s going to happen after this. This is a true One Bad Son record.”
I had the chance to speak with drummer (and entertainment lawyer) Kurt Dahl backstage at WakeRide 2011 about the fine art of drinking a 40 of Jack Daniels during shows:
One Bad Son Interview'In all seriousness it wasn't a two-six of JD...it was a 40'.
For those that like their rock with a fist in the air and their live shows loud and full of sweat, do not miss One Bad Son’s CD Release Party Saturday October 6th at Louis’.
