The Balconies stand before you – teeth bared, eyelashes batting, clothing and hair drenched in sweat. In the blink of an eye, the group has grown from a humble indie pop band to a leather-clad three-headed rock and roll monster, punctuated by 80s hair metal flair. With Jacquie at the helm, backed by the rippling rhythms of Liam and Stephen, The Balconies continue to steamroll unsuspecting crowds throughout Europe and continental North America – doing it heavier and sweatier each and every night (go ahead, try to outdo Jacquie’s deep rock lunges and swirling hair). They’ve shared the stage with Cold War Kids, Mother Mother, Devo, Sloan, Stars, Wide Mouth Mason, Big Sugar, Tokyo Police Club, Bad Religion, Rival Sons, and the Sam Roberts Band. But The Balconies aren’t satisfied. They’re out for blood and hungry for fresh ears – as indicated by the video for new single "The Slo”, a cut from the upcoming album that premiered via ION Magazine (Canada) and AltSounds (UK) this fall. So far in 2013, The Balconies have taken Europe by storm; touring with Rival Sons, playing packed showcases at MIDEM in Cannes, Liverpool Sound City (UK), and Brighton’s The Great Escape in addition to North American dates at South By Southwest, Canadian Music Week, and North By Northeast. With a new full-length album recorded with legendary producer Arnold Lanni (Finger Eleven, Simple Plan, Our Lady Peace) on the horizon, and a fall full of relentless touring, the future looks bright. So, if you fancy a riot of gargantuan rhythmic proportions, swing by. Oh, and be prepared – this will get loud.
