"Fundraising concert for Burlington group reaches masses"

"“We’ve known them for a while and they’re starting to do bigger things, they want to tour out West,” said Andrew Banter, one of three parts comprising a CFRU radio show gone concert series known fittingly as The Thrill is Back. The rest of his team consists of local partners Andy Minnes and Jeremiah Giuliano, the latter also a member of local group Humanzees, who opened the show. Giuliano’s voice, rich with character, makes this group a valuable local act and has also attracted attention from most unexpected sources.
“We had them on the station Monday, and some older guy called in who said he was driving, pulled over his truck, called his wife to get the phone number for CFRU, and called us to say how stoked he was about Jeremiah’s voice,” said Banter." - The Ontarion, Guelph, ON - The Ontarion, Guelph, ON

Bio

Dark pop and dance rock collide, unsuspectingly, under the umbrella of existential lyrical expression. Four friends in Guelph turned family striving to musically communicate their combined experiences. Tight, pulsing, heavy and precise, punctuated by gravelly and grave vocals. A deep, primal burn.

"Press play and jettison all your impressions of what rock sounds like. With origins believed to be the hearts of darkness, and ancient melodies hummed under stout breaths, The Humanzees are an entirely new species; wittingly dangerous, a thrill-seeker's rush. As you stand in a darkened room and the low growl of a distorted bass crunch ascends and dovetails into Zeppelin rhythms, the guitar attacks, the drums beat lethal, and your instincts take over, you're fighting or flighting now. If Rage Against The Machine was a spade more primal, if Jack White were slightly more feral, you'd begin to feel the rush of a Humanzee sighting. Then you hear the soulful rasp cut through the crushing symphony, and you're out of control. You could be in a Chicago Blues room listening to Muddy Waters invent electricity, or you could be staring down Thom Yorke's throat as he vocally eviscerates a stadium. This music reconciles our hunted minds and our haunted hearts, and we all know the words because we're all breathing out demons. It's the way you like the edge in your whiskey, it's the good burn, the good fight, the good sh*t. Press play."
