Biography

Six years as a band, six members in the band, and the
calendar reads 2006. It is shaping up to be one hell
of a year for Reason Disappears.

The fire that ignites this Toronto-based powerhouse is
coming to fruition with the bands upcoming release,
Toss the Match. Entirely self-produced in their own
studio, Toss the Match is promising to be a venue of
raw energy and sonic exploration not yet experienced
by fans of Reason Ds recorded music. Intricate and
eclectic, heavy, funky and always melodic, fans of the
band can rest assured that all the things they have
come to expect from Reason Disappears will be present
on this CD, but with a heightened sense of focus and
cohesion. Being firm disbelievers in the myth that
great songs and great musicianship cannot co-exist,
the members of Reason D use their extraordinary musical
abilities to heighten the emotional experiences of Toss
the Match.

Having had their two previous efforts produced by
prominent Canadian rockers Nick Walsh (Slik Toxik) and
Jagori Tanna (I Mother Earth) respectively, one might
wonder why the boys in Reason D would choose to do it
on their own this time. Drummer Mark Kasaboski comments,
"We had amazing experiences with both Nick and Jag, and
learned so much about what works and what doesnt work
in a recording. We figured, since we have the tools at
our disposal, this was an ideal opportunity to use that
knowledge and create exactly what we had envisioned.
People had always commented on how our self-produced demos
were so much more representative of the raw energy found
in our live show, so it made sense to do it this way".

It is this very live show that seems to keep people coming
back for more. National exposure on MuchMusic and MuchLoud
via their video for Almond Sculpture, as well as supporting
slots with Billy Talent, Three Days Grace, Death From Above
1979, Thornley, Bedouin Soundclash and The Salads have been
effective in reaching out to attract more and more fans to
their consistently packed headlining shows. This in turn,
has lead to Reason D gaining a reputation as one of the most
exciting and energetic live acts on the scene.

When asked about the suspicion that he may be an Arsonist in
waiting, Vocalist Bob Mather replied, Toss the Match is
symbolic of burning the things in your past that have held
you back. Fire can be very destructive, but it can also be
cleansing. This album is about reaching deep inside,
exploring all the things you don't like about yourself or your
situation, and destroying them to make way for new life.

Toss the Match is slated for release this summer, and will see
Reason Disappears live show spreading like wildfire.
