Burnthe8track

Since their inception, Burnthe8track has been winning audiences in all parts of Canada and the U.S. with their solid punch of hard riffs and melodic punk hooks. The Winnipeg-based four-piece, whose members include brothers Derek and Jason Kun (vocals and guitar respectively), Sam Osland (drums) and Mike Goreski (bass), formed in the summer of 2001 and quickly distinguished themselves as a unique and highly energetic band amidst the choking atmosphere of generic pop-punk acts.

Since their inception, Burnthe8track has been winning audiences in all parts of Canada and the U.S. with their solid punch of hard riffs and melodic punk hooks. The Winnipeg-based four-piece, whose members include brothers Derek and Jason Kun (vocals and guitar respectively), Sam Osland (drums) and Mike Goreski (bass), formed in the summer of 2001 and quickly distinguished themselves as a unique and highly energetic band amidst the choking atmosphere of generic pop-punk acts. They released The Division EP to extremely positive reviews and quickly drew the attention of Abacus Recordings, who promptly signed the band. The band have shared the stage with acts as impressive and diverse as The Misfits, Propaghandi and The Ataris, to name but a few. With their guitar-driven song approach, full of melodic sensibilities and sincere vocals, fans and critics alike have drawn diverse comparisons ranging from Dag Nasty and Hot Water Music to Thursday and Face To Face. Recently recorded at Westside Records in Burlington, Ontario, with producer Justin Koop (Grade, Silverstein, Billy Talent), The Ocean perfectly captures the bands dynamic sound, swelling between subtlety and pure aggression throughout all 12 tracks. This is most evident on songs such as “The Hourglass Breaks,” “Voices,” and the title track “The Ocean.” Vocalist Derek comments that the album title “is sort of a metaphor for the isolation and flatness of our surroundings. It also deals with the issue of finding the place that makes you the happiest.” Like the ebb and flow of the tide, Burnthe8track plan on touring relentlessly, captivating people everywhere with their heavily melodic and exhilarating sound.
