The best kept secret in music


"The Gears"

"Straight outta Toronto THE GEARS swoop down offering a sweat-soaked slab of jagged rawk. Their second single "Crabs" more than capably announces the arrival of this radio ready outfit." - EXCLAIM

"The Gears"

"THE GEARS grab all of the recent Hives/Vines/Strokes types of bands and mops the floor with them... A REAL attitude...the perfect amount of snot and grit and balls the size of a mack truck... Hats off to this group... we only hope to see their name on big venue marquees soon... much more interesting then 95% of the hard driving rock these days... Sweet Jesus give us a full length album ASAP!" -


The Gears - The Gears EP 2003


Feeling a bit camera shy


"Imagine if Jane’s Addiction and The Clash showed up at The Who’s house with a case of whiskey and said ‘press record, let’s jam’. They might have called it ‘THE GEARS’."

Founded by the recently paroled BILLY MINX and PADDY BLACK
in August 2003 and completed with deadbeats LANCE and ROCKIN’ LOWELL, the band has had a remarkable first year.
Their raw and edgy sound, coupled with a frenetic and unpredictable live show , has been tearing up audiences all over southern Ontario.
Showcases at the 2004 North by Northeast festival and Canadian Music Week have helped to fuel industry buzz around the band’s
self-titled debut EP.

Now, having independently shot videos for their first two singles,
the band has taken things to the next level by developing
and shooting the pilot for THE GEARS TV –
a half hour television series documenting the band’s
debaucherous shenanigans on the road to rock stardom.

Clearly a reformed, motivated, and resourceful band,
THE GEARS continue to work tirelessly to spread the gospel of
real, balls to the wall rock’n’roll –
and will not rest until all have been enlightened.
