Biography

Wheels On The Bus are four good friends striving to make honest and sincere music. Forming in 2001 and hailing from Brampton Ontario, which has spawned such acts as Moneen, The End, The Junction, and Bombs Over Providence, Wheels On The Bus continue to impress their loyal fan base and peers with their brand of gut wrenching punk, metal, and rock. With influences that reference such new and old acts as Iron Maiden, Coheed And Cambria, and Thrice, their music has never succumbed to the confines of one genre but has rather allowed them to develop a diverse punk rock sound. Since their inception, they have played over 200 shows, toured Canada, and released two independent EPs. Wheels On The Bus' first independent EP, "796 The # Of The Beast" was released in 2001. It quickly sold out and is now out of print. In 2004 they took the show on the road, touring Canada in support of their second independent release, "Take This Knife...From My Hands". Since then the band has built a reputation in Ontario for having one of the most explosive live shows out there. They have also shared the stage with such acts as Alexisonfire, Moneen, Silverstein, Bigwig, Protest the Hero, The End, Choke, The Fully Down, and Crowned King. August 2, 2005 will see the release of their first full-length album titled "In the Loop" (Cat# SLR005) on Sunday League Records. With heavy and melodic riffs, syncopated drum fills, and unfaltering bass lines that are encompassed by a thoughtful pop sensibility, Wheels On The Bus delivers a classic album with the release of their latest effort. Countless vocal hooks and strong song structures join together to deliver a great blend of punk, metal and pop oriented rock that is sure to please both old and new fans. Proclaimed as a live act that isn't to be missed, Wheels on the Bus will be touring throughout the spring & summer of 2006. With no plans to slow down anytime soon, watch for Wheels On The Bus coming through your area in support of their latest release "In the Loop”.
