Cynical Sons

Radio Station: Ottawa
Alternative / Hard Rock

We are a new sleaze-metal band from Ottawa,Canada and we just released our track “Defiance” (out on every digital platform).

“The debut single from this new Canadian band, Use Me sounds both fresh and pleasingly familiar. Gleefully mining the heady dangling-earring days of the 80’s, Cynical Sons burst out of the gate with a raunchy sleaze-metal jammer that will scratch your itch for lust and leather. Bon appétit! “ Classic Rock Magazine issue 265.

We’ve all been playing in bands for a while now and have had a small amount of success. Our guitarists last French folk-rock band (The Giveaway) was on Quebec radio for a few months this fall and they have managed to play at Casino Lac-Leamy, Bar Robo, The Record Centre etc… here in Ottawa. Our bass player’s older band (Evine) reached 15,000 views on YouTube and was on a National French dating TV show. Our singer is currently working as a singer for La Ferme Rouge in Gatineau and plays tons of shows with his hard-rock Cover band. Our drummer has been a roadie for lots of big French Quebec rock bands and knows the ropes live! We are looking to get the party started this summer with some shows but want to get the ball rolling with these tracks! Mixed and mastered by Luc Tellier who has worked with Simple Plan, David Usher, Story Untold, etc. Our current single, Feen For Me, is at more than 5000 listens on YouTube and it’s still going. We’re on Spotify and pretty much every digital platform. We ‘ve been featured in The Classic Rock Magazine issue 265 as one of 12 up and coming bands to look out for in 2019-2020.
