Biography

Formed at the culmination of what was 90s rock, The Arsoncityscape have a fine tuned pop sensibility which they blend with a modern sophistication to create their own distinguished brand of rock.

While rising in the London, Ontario music scene, the band has been informed by a variety of influences, notably on an individual basis, which has driven their music in a variety of creative directions.

On guitar, Rory MacGregor and Devon Abraham primarily draw influence from the pop rock and alternative genres, providing both melodically and rhythmically driven guitar-work. Though subtle at times, the complexity of the guitars is essential to the unique mood of each song, and the layered, upbeat interactions between lead and rhythm.

Kaes Verweel provides the band with the persistent drive in their sound, by way of his lively and eclectic bass playing. Paired with the intricate rhythmic stylings of drummer Alex Caron, the two add unique and pivital texture to The Arsoncityscape’s sound.

Oriol never ceases to amaze the band, and despite taking what seems like an eternity to come up with a melody, it’s always worth the wait. With a defined history in acting and an even greater education in vocal training it’s no surprise that he is constantly striving to out do himself. Perfection is what he strives for, and a lasting impression is what he intends to leave on his audiences.

After securing some government funding from FACTOR, the band has recorded seven tracks with producer Dan Brodbeck and have independently released their first demo cd which is currently causing a buzz in the industry. The band has played hundreds of shows over the last five years and have shared the stage with the likes of Sparta, Anberlin and Midtown. The future of This young and talented group apears to be bright as they continue touring and are planning for the release of a full length album due in 2008.

Lyrics

The Things You Think You Know

Written By: The Arsoncityscape

Your aim is always near to me.
Now I've got nothing I can give.
Raking like a siv through me,
To sort through ways I have to live.

And you're so high strung,
So high up,
So high strung.
Is our time up?

Win this war.
Cause you've got to bring yourself home,
When grace decides,
That you're proud of this too in its own way. (Can't hide myself)
You've got to hold on, when you're proud of this too, (Under your shell)
Not just proud but consumed with it too.

No I've got nothing left to give.
With your eyes like gold,
And your face so stealth.
But you look so sly,
From under your shell.

But just cause I'm protesting, don't mean I'm second guessing you.
No, no, just cause I'm protesting, don't mean I'm second guessing.

Win this war.
Cause you've got to bring yourself home,
When grace decides,
That you're proud of this too in its own way. (Can't hide myself)
You've got to hold on, when you're proud of it too, (Under your shell)
Not just proud but consumed with it too.

Abandon all your reasoning.
You don't control the things you think you know.
Cause you're so on top, I can't reach up.

Win this war.
Cause you've got to bring yourself home,
When grace decides,
That you're proud of this too in its own way. (Can't hide myself)
You've got to hold on, when you're proud of this too, (Under your shell)
Not just proud but consumed with it too.
