Somewhere between lust and destiny, five artists met each other in Toronto in 2004. The planets aligned, but there was no moon, so the music was dark and naked. The 13th was deliberate, not just as a band name, but as a reflection of the notion that their collective creative could be outside the traditional restrictions of popular music and still be successful. While some people are paralyzed by their superstition around the number 13, this band embraces possibility.

Being distinctive on the indie music scene, The 13th has a sound that is diverse yet refreshing and hard to pin to one genre. Convergence is a metaphor for their music that is a contagious mix of heavy guitars with industrial keys, powerful hypnotic rhythms, and eclectic and progressive vocals surrounded with risk. It sounds emotionally pagan with no specific political message, but is still proud to be The 13th regardless of the “evil doers” undertone. And they continue to test fate, push limits, and drive deep emotional boundaries, all with an attitude undaunted by what others think.
