Biography

The original members of the band met at McMaster University in 2005. Playing and generating a formula for songwriting took them into the early part of 2007, when they established themselves as an active group. At this point the band experimented musically and recorded a few demo tracks as they struggled to find a definitive sound. As a five-piece band, they developed a small reputation in the Hamilton music scene, playing locally. Their music, once defined by the presence of a violin has since evolved into the ambient and alternative sound, unique to the group. With their success around McMaster, the group settled on its current member lineup after a time of uncertainty about their direction. Each member brought their own musical background and perspectives to the table and subsequently went into the studio to record their debut EP, You Know Who You Are.
For Days is first and foremost a musical experience. Their live show is unique and full of energy. Never does the band, with the utmost commitment to their audience, fail to deliver an awe-inspiring performance. Lead vocalist Martin Capdevila’s voice soars above the alternative rock structure supported by Ben Van Mierlo and Will Mountain. Jordan Thomson’s ambient guitar echoes throughout the songs adding an indie and almost experimental flair to the music. His light melodies fit perfectly into the raw sound of the rest of the band. Rhythmically, drummer Steve Male’s interweaving of simplicity and complexity gives each song a catchy, driving underbelly that is marking of the For Days sound—it will get you moving!
Their live performances are noteworthy for the bands ability to interact with the audience and to get people singing and dancing.
Musically, For Days has no single definitive categorizing genre, but have been described as emotional, experimental, ambient alt-rock with pop sensibilities.
