Biography

The six headed hydra known as You Yourselves hails from the most royal
of cities, Guelph, Ontario. Despite experiencing a number of lineup
changes since the bands inception in 2005, the now solidified lineup
performs an abraisive brand of indie rock. They showcase the
verstility inherent in the genre by amalgamating punk aesthetic with
hook laden dual vocals and a plethora of diverse musical influences.
Lead by vocalists Brian Gillis and Jon Gazendam (who also plays
keys), the musical onslaught is proudly accompanied by the pulsating
beats of Luke McCarter, the devestating bass licks of his brother
Reid, and the dual guitar attack of Mr. Jon F. Law and Chris
McCintosh.
The noises made by these six individuals culminate to create
what the band refers to as "spy rock," a sound which although is
contemporary in its aggressive nature, still holds a facet of
setimentality, paying homage to a plethora of musical forms from the
years of yore.
The eccentric and uber enertgetic set provided by You Yourselves
has left many a dancefloor devestated, and they are simply awaiting an
oppurtunity to demolish a room full of ears in ANY town near you.

Set List

Our typical set list is pretty awesome. We can play for an hour or a day. We decide which songs we play depending on who is there. We typically play our own material but have been known to break into the occasional Iggy Pop search and destroy cover. We love playing live and pour everything we have into our sets.
