Its been a whirlwind last month here. We arrived back in Vancouver last night after spending 3 weeks on the road touring western Canada. We played so many great shows, got to meet and spend time with so many great people and we are all still alive!
Now its time to rest as we will be embarking on the crazy ass 45 hour drive from Vancouver to Barrie, Ontario this Sunday. to start the 2nd leg of our Canadian Tour in Eastern Canada! (Full list of dates are listed below and on our “Tour” page).
And a final cherry on top, we were told this morning that “It Ain’t Right” has cracked the Top 30 on the Canadian Active Rock Charts! Thanks for all the requests and support! We hope to see you all soon!

Finally got some time today to unwind after a busy week at CMW and a prompt return to the “grind” back in BC.
Toronto has always been an exciting city for us. We have been fortunate enough to take several trips out east and every time we are welcomed very graciously by music fans and music lovers. More than anything, Toronto simply embraces music, especially live music.
For OBS, this was made especially apparent by our close friend Terry Makedon and the whole crew at T-MAK World. Terry and his crew spend a great deal of time promoting this vibrant TO music scene. They work incessantly to provide detailed reviews, descriptions and insight into the happenings of music in Toronto. It’s people like Terry, John, Steve, and Karen that create a “scene” where music, art and culture are revered and made important.
Thank you to T-MAK, everyone who we got to spend time with, and all of our friends new and old in Toronto. We will surely be back soon!

The official ‘Scarecrows’ video is on the airwaves. It was an amazing experience for us to film, and thank you all for your patience. It was shot in rural Saskatchewan from Dec 28 – 30, 2012. Some hardcore fans can maybe recognize the exact locations. And yes, it was as cold or colder than it looks. A huge thank you to director Matt Scott and the whole crew. Enjoy!!
