Biography

(Insert band bio here. Include terms "original", "talented" and "world domination")

The STEREOHOAX think they are awesome. A main ingredient in the recipe of a good rock band is confidence, and there’s no shortage of that in the STEREOHOAX. Bowman, Joey Proulx, Brendan McGarvey and Anthony Policelli are all proficient musicians and have created a unique sound incorporating everything they love about music. Their short, catchy songs cleverly sway between punchy, driving rock with reggae inspired rhythms combined with a punk attitude, all the while sounding 100% STEREOHOAX.

With an unapologetic front man, it was hard to ignore the band’s presence or their lyrics when the STEREOHOAX hit the stage. "Not only does he (Bowman) say the things you shouldn’t say, he says the things no one else has the balls to say."- Brendan, PunkTV.ca July 18, 2008.

Formed in early 2007, the STEREOHOAX is a relatively new band, but is made of seasoned musicians from Toronto's eclectic music scene, all playing since high school. In their short time together they have garnered much attention from both fans and music critics alike. July of 2007 saw the STEREOHOAX release their first 3 song EP recorded @ Orchard Studios, and later remixed by Justin Koop of B Town Sound (Finger Eleven, Saint Alvia Cartel). With over 3000+ downloads of their first EP spearheaded by the single "Friend Card", (which is HUGE in Germany), the boys decided to hit the studio again to do a follow-up EP. In 2008, the STEREOHOAX recorded their second EP entitled "These Songs Are About You" with Justin Koop once again behind the wheel.

The success of their 2 EP's saw the STEREOHOAX get accepted to play one of Canada’s biggest yearly festivals, Edgefest, a definite honour for the four Toronto natives.

Less than 2 years together and 2 EP's under their belt, the STEREOHOAX are setting a fast pace for themselves while getting ready for their CD Release party set to launch October 30th 2008 at Toronto’s Legendary Horseshoe Tavern.

"In an age where new sounds and endemic rhythms are at the heart of peoples musical palettes, you can find The Stereohoax pioneering such a mission and breaking new ground, all in the tradition of good music" Croyden DeMello torontomusicscene.ca February 6, 2008

Lyrics

Friend Card

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

The shortest email I received in my life , was one in response to where I stand in your life . What did you really expect ? A kiss should have no regrets . You’re the ray of sunshine in my life . How could I not read the signs , hidden behind misleading eyes . You made me believe in us again .

The biggest let down in my life . You set me up right .
You pulled the friend card out on me @ the end of the night .

I read your emails and it turns out I was right . Wasted so much time waiting for you to figure your shit out . Can’t convince you I’m the man . Can’t sit idle as a friend waiting for that one last moment . Yes we’ve been through this before , I can’t do it anymore . Hearing stories of new boys w/new cars

The biggest let down in my life . You set me up right .
You pulled the friend card out on me @ the end of the night .
The subliminal messages I guess I didn’t read right .
You pulled the friend card out on me @ the end of the night .

After all we’ve been through I can’t believe you blocked me

Death Cult Trench Coat

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

I’m dragging bodies out the front door . I ain’t waiting for help . I ain’t waiting no more .
I’m falling out windows . Screaming out for God . Tripping on bullets covered w/my friend’s blood .Everybody run . How much is enough ?

Death cult trench coat . We’ve got ourselves another one . Everybody’s running away from the shooters gun . The press is all over , where to point the blame . Interviewing anyone who knew about his insane .

We got ourselves another one . Call the news crews and scramble everyone .
Where did we go wrong ? Was it him or a song ?

The flags @ half mass . They’ve got themselves another one . Capital Hill goes into shock . You knew right from the start . You can write what you want . Did you stop @ 32 or did someone stop you ?

This Ain't Workin

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

@ first you blinded me w/your beauty . Every thing I’ve ever wanted . Then you showed me your real side .
You took my breath a way . You took my time away . You pushed my friends away , killing everything inside .

This ain’t working anymore

I thought this was the last time . We’ve been through so much pain . I knew that this was our last game .
You said you were here to stay . I threw my black book away . You pushed my life away . You killed everything inside

This ain’t working anymore . The sun shines has left the room
You left for the last time today . Please take this stale air w/you

Don’t you know that tattoos don’t make you cool .
Out time in life has come unglued

@ first you blinded me w/your beauty . All I see is ugliness inside . It’s to late you showed off your real side .
You said you were here to stay . I threw my black book away . You pushed my life away . You killed everything inside

You Got Me

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

Oh no did you just come back online to check ?
One glance at your email address and I’m a shattered mess
Those lips those eyes, those legs, those smiles, that smell, I am delirious
You got my heart pounding without saying a word

You got me You got me jonesin’ for you love once again

Thought I was over this it’s apparent that ain’t true
It ain’t your fault you were just signing in
Those memories and broken dreams keep flooding in and won’t go away
You got me jonesin’ for your finger tips again

You got me spinning round and round like a roller-coaster
Spinning round and round and upside down again
I'm jonesin’

Bitter at the World

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

You’re wearing mascara like it’s the new rage
Your tight leather pants they can’t hide your age
It’s not our fault that you drove all day
It’s not our fault you played a cover gig yesterday

Just because you’re bitter at the world
Just because you suck at life
Don’t take it out on us

Having problems finding it in HMV
You’ve been fooling the kids but you ain’t fooling me
Just because you were somebody one day
That don’t mean shit to us today

Just because you’re bitter at the world
Just because you suck at life
Don’t take it out on us

You had your chance and you blew it
Its time to move on w/your life
Get out my light

Just because you’re bitter at the world
Just because you suck at life
Don’t take it out on us

Self Sabotage

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

I self sabotaged myself yet once again
Set myself up too high to fall down again
Cuz every time I try I always fail
I self sabotaged myself yet once again

If I try hard I never,
Never get no where
I’m sending the wrong signals once again

You really got a hold on me

I watched you walk in the room with all your friends
You caught my eyes I’m trying hard not to pretend
That you really wear that dress so well
I’m gonna mess it up self sabotaging myself again
Oh yeah oh yeah oh yeah

If I try hard I never,
Never get no where
I’m sending the wrong signals once again

You really got a hold on me

You’re so beautiful I just want you to know you’re my favorite girl

B Sides and Box Sets

Written By: The STEREOHOAX

I thought I was lost without you
But then I wrote this song about you
And now its all okay
I focused my thoughts and feelings
I poured it out like anger bleeding
Gonna take it out on some kid today

It’s all your fault
I’m taking it out on the kids
It’s all your fault
Pouring it out on the poor crowd in front of me
There’s no excuse for abuse
I’m taking it out on the kids today

I can write an entire box set
Full of rarities and hidden tracks
B sides on the subject of you
And all your fucking annoying games
The melodies change the song still stays the same
I’m gonna owe you all my royalties one day

It’s all your fault
I’m taking it out on the kids
It’s all your fault
Pouring it out on the poor crowd in front of me
There’s no excuse for abuse
I’m taking it out on the kids today

You got me screaming at children x 3

Unsuspecting teens who just came to see
Their favorite band and now the singers taking something out on them
Unsuspecting teens who just came to see
“why is he screaming? why is he screaming at me ?!”

It’s all your fault
I’m taking it out on the kids
It’s all your fault
Pouring it out on the poor crowd in front of me
There’s no excuse for abuse
I’m taking it out on the kids today

You got me screaming at children x 3
