Imagine. The Beatles, Beach Boys and Buddy Holly came together in the late 50's and recorded some tracks for a musical time capsule. The musical collaboration would be dug up later and represent a new fresh sound to the musical industry. Fast forward-present day. Hub music is that Fresh-New-Sound.

Biography

Google this: Next Big Thing. See it yet? Give it a minute—it’s coming. The next big thing I’m speaking of is the rising musical singularity known as HUB. Planted and harvested in the gardens of Central Ontario, this band is almost done growing up and is ripe and ready to head out and conquer the world.
Enter the debut album “8.” It wraps acerbic wit in saccharine melodies that feature a mix of songs that that switch from bubbly, aggressive rhythms, to anthemic numbers that practically demand that you wave your cell phone in the air.
“8” features a blink-and-you-miss-it brand of quick rock and catchy melodies that will shake the peaches from your tree. Speed has been built into these songs which are high-energy fun, as evidenced in the rebellious track “Starting the Rev.” The Blitzkrieg Bop-esque track “The Dirty” sums up both the tone of the album and the character of the band itself with the opening line, “it’s time to hit the road, fuel up, gear up and go.” And go they shall.
HUB is both a brand and a man who goes by the name of Josh McFadden. Joining the fraternity of single musicians who make up a band, like Acqualung (aka Matthew Hales), Dashboard Confessional (Chris Carrabba), and Iron & Wine (Samuel Beam), HUB is an outfit that knows how to rock.
If you’ve attended any of their recent performances—playing some local Toronto hotspots or kicking off the 2010 New Music Fest, opening for Big Sugar and The Trews—you would see that the stage was filled, and the venue was packed with the sound of loud, rocking music. There is no shortage of hands on deck to bring the project to life, but at its heart, HUB is Josh McFadden, singer, songwriter, heart and soul of the union.
So hit refresh and see what I’m talking about or, better yet, get out to their next show. And while you’re there, absorbed in the power of high-octane rock, joining the movement of people who are enlisting in the HUB army, holding the album on the way home, you’ll know what you’re holding in your hands: the next big thing.

The Dirty

THE DIRTY
WRITTEN BY : JOSH MCFADDEN

IT’S TIME, TO HIT THE ROAD
FUEL UP GEAR UP AND GO
GO WOULD YOU GO I GOT A FEELING TODAY
HURRY REAL FAST PUT YOUR FOOT ON THE GAS
AND I SAY…HIT THE ROAD WAY

OH
I GREW SHE GREW WE KNEW
WE ALWAYS FIND THESE THINGS IN TIME
WE KNEW THAT THINGS WOULD FALL IN PLACE FOR US

YOU GOT THE STUFF, DANCING ON A TRUCK
AND EVERYTHING YOU SAY, IS GOLD TODAY
SO YOU GO TO A PLACE WHERE THERE’S GIRLS AROUND
AND THEY LOVE YOU SO MUCH CAUSE YOU DANCE LIKE A CLOWN
AND WE SAY… HIT THE ROAD WAY

WE WENT OUTSIDE AND DID IT ONE TIME-ONE
IN THE GARAGE WE MET, DID IT TWO TIMES-ONE, TWO
THIRD TIMES A CHARM SO WE DID IT THREE TIMES-ONE, TWO, THREE
DID THE DIRTY ON THE FLOOR OH-ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR

STARTING THE REV
WRITTEN BY : JOSH MCFADDEN

AND ALL THESE THINGS I’VE GOT
WITHOUT YOU THEY’D BE SMALL
I’M STARTING THE REV, I’M STARTING TO REV
ALL THESE THINGS I’VE SAID
LAY RESTLESS IN MY HEAD
I’M STARTING THE REV, I’M STARTING TO REV

I DON’T WANNA BE
WHAT SOCIETY
WANTED ME TO BE
I DON’T WANNA SEE
I DON’T WANNA BE

AND IN THIS THANKLESS JOB
IM JUST ONE OF THE MOB
I’M STARTING THE REV, I’M STARTING TO REV
DON’T LAY ME OFF I’LL QUIT
I’M SICK OF ALL OF THIS
I’M STARTING THE REV, I’M STARTING TO REV

THERE’S RIOTS IN THE STREETS
THERE’S RIOTS IN MY DREAMS
THE RIOTS ALL I SEE
LETS RIOT IN THE STREETS

Upside Down

Written By: Josh McFadden-HUB

UPSIDE DOWN
WRITTEN BY : JOSH MCFADDEN

YOU GOT ME SO SICK BABE
ALWAYS AROUND
MY HEAD FEELS SO INFLAMED
HEADS IN THE CLOUD
SAW YOU WITH YOUR EX-TODAY
MIXED IN THE CROWD
YOU TELL ME WHY I STAY
I HAVE MY DOUBTS

GOT ME FEELING LIKE A CLOWN
THE WAY YOU THINKS UP IN THE CLOUDS
GOT ME FEELING UPSIDE DOWN
GUESS I SHOULD JUST STICK AROUND

GUESS WE SHOULD PART OUR WAYS
DOOMS ON THE RISE
YOUR HEARTS BEEN MIXED FOR DAYS
IT’S IN YOUR EYES
BEEN LIVING IN A DAZE
AN ENDLESS HAZE
I’LL TRY IT’S NOT A RACE
FOUR FEET IN A MILE

STICK AROUND

She Doesn't

SHE DOESN’T
WRITTEN BY : JOSH MCFADDEN

SHE DOESN’T SHE DOESN’T KNOW
THAT THE TIMES ARE CHANGING RE-ARRANGING YOU

SHE DOESN’T KNOW
WHO REALLY KNOWS
SHE DOESN’T KNOW
WHO REALLY KNOWS

OH
SHE DOESN’T SHE DOESN’T FEEL
LIKE SOMEONE ALIVE NO CHANCE OF BEING REAL

MISS UNDER, MISS UNDERSTOOD YOUNG
SHE DOESN’T SHE DOESN’T, SHE DOESN’T KNOW
MISS UNDER, MISS UNDERSTOOD YOUNG
SHE DOESN’T SHE DOESN’T, SHE DOESN’T KNOW

OH
SHE DOESN’T SHE DOESN’T SEE
WHY WE ACT THIS WAY WHY CAN’T WE ALL BE FREE

OH
SHE DOESN’T SHE DOESN’T MAKE
ANY SENSE TO ANYONE WHO IS FAKE
