Seven Nines and Tens


"Sky-gazing guitar strums that conjure Jupiter-era Cave In" - Exclaim


Seven Nines and Tens formed in 2008 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Guitarist Dave Cotton had been recording as many song ideas as he could manage for about 2 years leading up to this time and reached the point where it was time to see what the songs sounded like with a full band. Earl Heath joined the band in October 2008 as the drummer and the two played as many shows as possible for the next two years. Over this span of time the band was able to hone and refine their songwriting and used these results to record their debut album Habitat 67 in February 2011. Their engineer Hayz Fisher used his remarkable talents to facilitate the sessions and the resources to allow the band to record at legendary Vancouver studio “The Factory.” The record turned out quite well and saw the band sign to International art rock label Fluttery Records a mere two weeks after they released the record themselves.

The re release of Habitat 67 in the spring of 2012 saw the band receive acclaim from all corners of the world thanks to the wide reach of their new label. Along with this new-found international presence Seven Nines and Tens were fortunate to get to share to the stage with local Vancouver legends and Nettwerk/Sonic Unyon recording artists Mystery Machine, American based Translation Loss band City of Ships and a wide range of others.

The band spent upwards of a year recording and mixing their debut album and during this time they experimented with a large amount of new material that wasn’t to be included on their debut album. With the album eventually completed the band had literally compiled 20 new songs. Given that their debut hadn’t even been out for a year the band was not interested in releasing another full length record so soon. Two live performance favorites “Constants & Axioms” and “Kemptville” were chosen by the band to record as a single to give their fans a glimpse into the evolution of the band’s sound since the release of Habitat 67 The band entered another legendary Vancouver studio “The Greenhouse” to record these two songs with engineer Hayz Fisher once again engineering and producing the sessions along with the band. Adam Veenendaal, who mastered Habitat 67 worked his magic on the two tracks and band friend Steve Hanker co produced the sessions with the guys. The single will be released by NJ, USA based independent label Nefarious Industries on January 1st, 2013.
