Biography

THE FURIOS are a 6 piece band from Vancouver, British Columbia who have performed across Western Canada since 2000. The Furios began adding horns to the line-up in 2001 and have been evolving their blend of punk, ska, and reggae ever since. Noticeable influences in their sound include acts such as The Clash,Fishbone,The Slckers and Rancid. The 6-song EP "Los Furios" (Surrender Records 2003) was the first release to feature the horn driven sound people have come to associate with the band. The second release was "Warning Shot" (Megalith Records USA/Bacteria Buffet Records CDN, 2004). This album has sold over 5000 copies, mostly at the live shows, and has had rave reviews from college radio DJ's across the country. "Warning Shot" fully displays the diverse influences of the group, ranging from Rocksteady Reggae to Punk and Ska. February 4th 2006, a brand new album dropped titled "Tread Lightly" with a more powerful sound and some of the best songwriting to date for the band, an extensive tour followed. The Furios shine the brightest when seen and heard live. The six piece group rocks, jumps, bumps and dances through set after set creating a party atmosphere that has made them a favorite with club owners and patrons alike. Some of their highlight gigs include two opening spots at The Commodore Ballroom (House of Blues), first with Fishbone and later with The Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra. The have been invited to play the Victoria Ska Festival three years running, including a headlining spot on the 2005 bill with Fishbone and Long Beach Short Bus. The Vans Warped Tour has also taken notice of the band, featuring them on 2005 dates. Other acts that have shared a stage with The Furios include Bedouin Soundclash,Cherry Poppin Daddies,The Pietasters, Chris Murray,Westbound Train, Monkey, The Planet Smashers, The Toasters, The Real Mackenzies,Big-D and The Kids Table, DOA, Mad Bomber Society,General Rudie,The Evaporators, and The Smugglers. The Furios like to tour as much as possible. The Western provinces of Canada have had the pleasure to see fourteen tours in the past three years and, in the fall of 2004, The Furios brought their music as far east as Montreal, and thats just the tip of the iceberg, don't miss it when they come to your town!
