Biography

Despite the fact that Calgary has always been known as a rock and roll kind of town, there has been a significant dearth in bands with an actual backbone as of late. A lot of the indie world may have traded in their death wishes for higher pursuits, but a group of four dirtbags in Calgary remain steadfast on their path towards sex, drugs and rock and roll. Daywalker is the sound of thunder galloping down from the mountains, trident in hand and fists ablaze, raised high in the cool night air.

Daywalker first came together after Sled Island 2012, when, after being inspired by all the talent around them, Kevin P. (bass) and Adam (guitar) decided to join forces once again in service of rock and roll. their vision was immediately clear: play loud, fast, brash and brazen rock and roll that took no prisoners, gave no quarters and made no compromises. The final lineup fell into place quickly thereafter: they recruited Kevin N. on drums and Erik on guitar and started to click as a band together right away. It wasn't long thereafter that they landed their first gig opening up for Fucked Up at the Palomino for the Calgary Tattoo and Arts Festival after-party.

It's been a non-stop whirlwind since then. Somehow, they've managed to find time in their packed gigging scheduled to head into the studio in December 2012 to record their four-track debut EP. The album's artwork is done by Devil's Reject Art (Skeletonwitch, Deceased, Chimaira), who instantly felt a kinship with Daywalker's gnarled and proud aesthetics. Their EP release is set for March 28 at the Palomino, with Victoria's Durban Poison and fellow Calgary dirtbags Chron Goblin in town. And, with tour plans for the new year, it's only a matter of time until this fiery quartet descends on your town in a balls-out blaze of glory. You can't stop rock and roll, so may as well hang on for dear life and enjoy the ride.
