The Standstills highly anticipated full length album “Badlands” is about defining their craft and broadening their horizon. “It’s a mix of what we love, sexy psychedelic, guitar driven, outlaw rock and roll” lead singer and guitarist Jonny Fox declares. Drummer and singer Renee Couture defines the record as “If wild west Clint Eastwood had a sound”. The Canadian rock duo is off to a great start with their first single “Wild”, the quickest charting top ten on rock radio in Eone record label history.
This record follows the success of their 2015 EP “From The Devil’s Porch featuring “Orleans” which reached #4 on BDS active rock charts in Canada and “Rise of the Fall” also reaching top 10 in Canada. As a result, The Standstills were awarded Best New Rock Group at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. The album also received over 1.4 million streams globally. As a result, The Standstills successfully performed on their first arena tour across Canada supporting Our Lady Peace and I Mother Earth.
The Standstills have since taken steps into the international market performing at a sold out performance in one of Europe’s most prominent music festivals, Reeperbahn held in Hamburg Germany. There is much to look forward to from this masterful duo, as their unique style of rock speaks volumes in today’s vast musical landscape.
