Biography

The Peacoats are a musical super group formed in the later half of 2008. The collective is comprised of members of past and present bands from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. They jam and record in a church!

Collectively, The Peacoats have the experience of industry veterans. They are head and shoulders above the rest! The music speaks for itself!

Barrett Ross is a member of the newly formed Foam Lake and was a member of the recently defunked The Blood Lines. The Blood lines went as far as China playing The Beijing Pop festival along sides of Nine Inch Nails, Public Enemy and The New York Dolls. They have also played SXSW and NXNE, opened for The Dears on their 2006 Western Canadian tour and won a Western Canadian Music Award for "Outstanding Rock Recording".

Amber Kraft is a current member of the band Ultimate Power Duo who have done their fair share in the industry. They have performed coast to coast across Canada, have toured England and have played renowned music festivals such as SXSW and NXNE. They have been featured on Much Music's going coastal, have opened for bands such as Danko Jones, Bad Religion and NOmeansno and have played The Warped Tour (and will again this year 2009). They have recently been signed to Calgary's Saved by Radio. Amber trades in her drum sticks for a shot at the keyboards in this collective.

Shelby guitarist Mike Velonas are also original/former members of the band We Were Lovers.

Lyrics

Young and Relentless

Written By: Mike Velonas

all that they hear bold battle cries
all of it drifting from coffee shops
all of it filtered through Brit slang
all of the hip kids mind the gap

tastemakers lose art
gain demos and stats
filtered through marketing software
oh no no no no no

we are young and relentless

all that they hear they commodify
all that they are they make a lie
all of it spread through the air
all of the kids have caught the buzz

tastemakers lose art
gain demos and stats
filtered through marketing software
oh no no no no no

we are young and relentless

Lost Weapon

Written By: Mike Velonas

run in circles
run in circles around
all the time

I'm in the bend
before the break
I bit off more
than I can fake

lit a fire
lit a fire outside
the lost weapon

I'll build a moat
I'll build a wall
no one come near
no one at all

Set List

Sets are typically 40 mins

Crime and Comfort
A Citadel and a Secrecy
It Could be the Sun
We'll know more tomorrow
Shackleton
Serenade
Young and Relentless
Lost Weapon
