BandHip HopA Capella

Frantic rhythmic experimental punk.


Fortress unofficially formed in the winter of 2008.
Founding members Spencer (formerly of Calgary's The Incandescence) and Kelly played their first show at one of the infamous Fake Jazz Wednesdays at the now-defunct Cobalt. Despite technical difficulties and stage-fright, their stripped-down drum-machine driven set of abrasive guitar riffs and unsettling vocals was well received.
They have since gone on to play numerous shows in East Vancouver's punk scene of seedy bars and diy venues.
With the addition of Matt on bass and Anju (current member of Vancouver duo Ahna) on drums, Fortress have continued to experiment and expand their sound, surprising their audiences with their unconventional song-structures, lyrical content and intense presence.
