Combining aggressive and technical metal with grass-roots hardcore energy, Vancouver’s, A Textbook Tragedy are making bigwaves in the Canadianmusic scene. Formed in 2004, the band has spent their post high-school years relentlessly touring acrossNorth America, playing alongside some ofthe biggest names in heavy music including; All That Remains, The Acacia Strain,Misery Signals, Emmure, Comeback Kid, Ion Dissonance, andDespised Icon. Their independently released debut album “APartial Dialogue Between Ghost and Priest” (released in July 05’) earned them ravereviews and has sold well over 2000 copiesin Canada and worldwide.In Spring 07’, A Textbook Tragedy saw the need for a dedicated vocalist to helptake their sound andchaotic live show to a whole new level. To help accomplish these goals, the original foursome enlisted singer Chris Bahris.Withtheir roster finalized, the band acquired the talents of Winnipeg producer John Paul Peters to record their sophomorerelease. Showcasing maturesongwriting and brutally heavy instrumentals, A Textbook Tragedy’s latest release entitled“Intimidator,” is by far the bands best work to date.Vocally, the album is a co-operative effort between new vocalist Chris, andguitarist Kai Turmann (who previously held all vocal duties). The duallayered vocals add a unique energy and texture to thealbum. Rhythmically, the album features the percussive mastery of drummer Nick Yacyshynwho has been considered one of thebest young drummers in Canada.A Textbook Tragedy's new EP titled, 'Rain City State Of Mind', will be availableexclusively oniTunes and Distort Digital, June 23, 2009! « hide
