Secret Broadcast

Artist bio

Matt Lightstone: Vocals & Guitar
Keith Heppler: Drums
Curtis Harding: Bass & Vocals
Will Bennett: Guitar

With the dreaminess of Doves, the sonic guitar work of early Radiohead and the grandiosity of The Verve, Secret Broadcast combine the best of mid-90s U.K. guitar pop bands without sounding derivative or, worse, unoriginal.

- Brian Pascual, ChartAttack

The best thing to come out of Calgary since, well, ever, Secret Broadcast proves its possible to make basic rock n roll actually seem interesting. Imagine Radiohead if theyd formed in the early 80s, and you only start to get the idea.

.. shimmering guitar tones and minor-key chord shifts the kind of sound you could easily picture filling an arena within a few years time.

- Peter Hemminger, FFWD

"Secret Broadcast are a fantastic up-and-coming band with some great music."

Sir Richard Branson, Chairman of the Virgin Group

Toronto's Secret Broadcast (originally formed in Calgary) has cut their teeth opening for acts including Metric, Tokyo Police Club, The Stills and Matthew Good, playing main stage at Virgin Festival, showcasing at CMJ, NXNE, CMW, JunoFest and even playing a private party for Richard Branson. Theyve also been a mainstay on Canadian radio hitting top 40 on both the Canadian rock and college radio charts.

For their new album "Filthy Souls' they enlisted the help of Grammy award-winning producer Adam Kasper (Nirvana, Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters) and traveled to Seattle's Robert Lang Studios for the sessions. The result is an album full of intense, guitar-driven melodic rock songs combined with Brit-pop inspired sonic textures. Topically universal songs that make you think, feel and move. "Filthy Souls" is now available on eOne Music Canada.
