It is May 26th 2013 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The band taking this week's featured 'Song of the Week' spot is comprised of six young men who have definitely been making an impact in their local music scene in Calgary, Alberta. And, since forming, only a couple of months ago, this band's talent and drive has already earned them a whopping one thousand six hundred 'likes' on their Facebook page.
Cease & Desist, consisting of James Bunker (vocals), Danny Scullion (screams), Richard Golbeck (guitar), Craig Davidson (guitar), James Ward (bass / backing vocals) and Josh Bartlett (drums), is a band you will want to check out very soon. With their post hardcore sound, these six bring a unique flare to the music scene. And, although they only have two songs available to fans, they are both incredible. So, their first tune, titled Tourniquet, is getting this week's 'Song of the Week' spot.
When I first hopped on the band's Facebook page to check out their music, Tourniquet caught my attention right away. The voices of James Bunker (vocals) and Danny Scullion (screams) instantly complement each other perfectly and their overall sound is immediately addicting.
On the band's Facebook page they write, "Formed in early 2013, Cease & Desist has combined musicians from across the Calgary music scene to deliver an uplifting message through their musical abilities. Heartfelt lyrics are powerfully delivered by Danny Scullion and James Bunker, backed by intricate instrumentals from the likes of James Ward, Craig Davidson, Richard Golbeck and Josh Bartlett."
So, you will want to make sure you check out this Calgary, Alberta band. Not only have these six already shown their talent and passion, but it is quite obvious they will continue to blow their fans away. As vocalist Danny Scullion said to me in a Facebook message, "We try to write music that hits home to us and if people can take something away from it, it means the world to us." And, I know fans will.
As they say, "Cease & Desist are determined to make their voices heard." And, that is something I believe.
Be sure to head on over to Cease & Desist's Soundcloud page where you can listen to this week's 'Song of the Week', Tourniquet, as well as their newer songs, here:
