The Redmond Barry's

The Redmond Barry's

 Montréal, Quebec, CAN

The Redmond Barry's play a brand of Rock 'n' Roll they refer to as "Post-Muff". Constantly pushing the limits of the two-piece combo, they connect addictive riffs, complex drums and two distinct voices to give you raw sounds you won't feel stupid rocking out to. A 5-piece minus 3. TRB lives.


Formed in Montreal in the fall of 2009, The Redmond Barry’s consists of Chris Briard on drums and vocals, and Varun Chopra on guitar and vocals.

An outcry to most currently trending music, The Redmond Barry’s take influence from bands like The Libertines, Cursive, and Every Time I Die, as well as their alienation and frustration with society to create a raw and complex sound with charged lyrics from two distinct voices, that they have coined Post-Muff. Their goal is to push the limits of the two-piece band and create intricate, yet relatable music people won’t feel stupid rocking out to.

The release of their first EP, 1949 MURDERS, in July 2011 gained attention from the Montreal Gazette, Voir magazine, MTV and numerous blogs, as well as received airplay on University radio such as Concordia’s CJLO, Université de Montréal’s CISM, and Indie Love Radio. That fall, they headlined their first Pop Montreal (’11) showcase and shared the stage with Toronto’s Dearly Beloved. They later played the Sherbrooke Bellevue Beauvoir festival along with Parlovr and Uncle Bad Touch, and were recently part of the Pop Montreal showcase at NXNE (’12). The Redmond Barry’s will be bringing their raw sound to the upcoming Pop Montreal festival this fall 2012 and plan to release their debut LP, Friendship Kills, by spring 2013.
