The Lucky Ones

 Saint Catharines, Ontario, CAN

The Best Damn "Punk Rock" band out there today!...



The Lucky Ones are back! The St. Catharines-based booze-fuelled punk rockers are set to release their sophomore album Heartbreak, Hangovers and Punk Rock on Europe Fall of 2012 (Stumble Records). Recorded with well-known local producer Steve Rizun (The Creepshow, The Flatliners), the album is 14 tracks of stripped-down, bare-knuckled punk rock at its finest.

Since the release of their debut album The Booze Sessions in 2010, The Lucky Ones have won two NMA Punk Rock Group of the Year awards, Had Songs featured in TV Shows & Movies and have played many festivals including D-Tox Rock Fest, Canadian Music Fest, Koi Fest, Rebel Fest, SCENE Music Festival and have shared the stage with the likes of Stiff Little Fingers, The Forgotten Rebels, USS, The Bouncing Souls and NOFX. Collectively, band members Steve Stumble (vocals), Robbie Knuckles (bass), Chris Nowicki (guitar), and Eric Hutt (drums) also own and operate an independent record label, book and promote bands, manage a pub, regularly tour with a variety of acts, run no less than three music and entertainment festivals, and they still manage to party hard enough to put most of us to shame!

Everyone knows that the best way to defeat a hangover is to keep on drinking, and Heartbreak, Hangovers and Punk Rock is the better-developed, more intense musical morning after for this band of veterans and de facto ambassadors of punk rock in Niagara. The Lucky Ones will be bringing the party over to Europe in the Fall of 2012 and Australia in 2013.


The sound is immediately classic pop-and-gutter punk as only Niagarians can produce it (flecks of The Dropkick Murphy’s, Rancid and Forgotten Rebels are the order of the day) and, while locals will be thrilled that the band is able to do this, everyone else will marvel at how vibrant and flat-out mean the sound is; while other newer and younger punk bands have hinted that they might not be the guys to mess with these days, The Lucky Ones flat-out command attention.

St. Catharine’s Ontario Punk Rockers, The Lucky Ones, lay down the essentials the way it should be done on their second album, Heartbreak, Hangovers and Punk Rock. The band has a perfect mix of old and new school Punk and they play their tunes with absolute conviction. The songs are short, sweet, well written and all come together perfectly with a crisp and clean production thanks to Steve Rizun who helmed the producing duties.
- Andre Skinner – The Spill

The Lucky Ones are proving once again that Canada knows punk rock. This record reeks of good times and hard alcohol, in the best of ways. It’s a high-energy, high-passion album, and it merits many listens. If you’re in need of a new punk album and you’re not sure where to look, this is where you should go!
- Al – Stolen From The Radio

These guys are playing for the love of rock and roll and nothing else. Straight ahead, kick your ass in, punk rock with a capital P!
- Raised On Canadian Radio

The Lucky Ones fit perfectly with Stumble’s roster, offering the kind of honest, simple, beer-drenched songs that make a room full of drunken assholes at the Bovine want to drink copious amounts of Jagerbombs and heckle. But, like, in a good way.

The Lucky Ones, The Booze Sessions is nothing but raucous fun and a hard kick in the pants we overly serious rockers have needed for a long, long time.
- Keith Carmen – Exclaim

With The Lucky Ones, I swear there’s no comparison when it comes to a good punk show in terms of bringing out the best (and well, the teenage animosity) in anyone.
- Rose Cora Perry - Interrobang

The Lucky Ones are known almost as much for their partying ways as they are for their music!...
- Lori Littleton - St. Catharines Standard

The Lucky Ones have no grand aspirations other than living in the moment and guzzling pint upon seemingly endless pint.
