Unfortunately due to some circumstances beyond our control we will not be playing the Kansas City date with The Struts at The Truman on May 17th. Our apologies to anyone who was hoping to see us, we promise to be back again before the end of the year.

Opening For The Rolling Stones

Tuesday, June 26th we get to open for The Rolling Stones in Marseille, France.

I’ve been to three Stones concerts. My mother’s been to about 10. Growing up, they were rock and roll personified in my household. They were the gods that we measured ourselves up to when we started this band. This is an opportunity of a lifetime, and I can’t wait to get out in front of them and steal all their fans.

See you in France! Tickets are available here.


Juno Award Winners!


I don’t feel different waking up today. Don’t get me wrong, yesterday’s Juno award is highly appreciated, but it changes absolutely nothing for us as a band. The process is still the same: One song at a time, one show at a time, one fan at a time. This is the formula that has allowed us to cultivate a love for what we do, and a fan base who feels the same. The real reward for me has been the phone calls, texts and posts from all of our friends, fans and family. It feels as if a whole community won the award. It is with that sentiment, that I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart. This is nothing, if not the beginning. 

Love always. 
Brett and the boys.

Cover of Kanye West's "Runaway"


Back in December we had a great week visiting London UK. While we were there we did a session at this incredible spot called Fiction Studios. It's literally a film set of a library, turned into an audio recording studio. The vibe in there is amazing. We recorded a couple of tracks with video, including this cover of Kanye West's "Runaway".

Koster is a gigantic Kanye fan and he’s been covering the song for years. We played it in a church once together, and my voice just kind of worked with the song. I can remember listening to “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” and watching the short film all the time in University. It is by far my favourite Kanye album. I had never heard rap sound like that before. In my opinion, this album is one of the most important of the 21st century, and “Runaway” is one of the most perfect pop songs ever written.
— Brett

The track will be available globally on audio streaming platforms like Spotify and Apple Music tomorrow, so stay tuned. We hope to enjoy!

We just touched down in London, UK, and today we're happy to unveil the new video for "Everything Is Alright" alongside three new UK tour dates for 2018!

First the video. This track has had such an incredible reaction over the last few months and we couldn't be happier with the visual. Directed by Colin G. Cooper in Toronto last month, Brett had the following to say:

It’s nice getting your hands dirty once in a while. The video was a quite enjoyable and painless experience, other than getting smashed in the face with tomatoes. Thank you to our director Colin and his crew for the outstanding work and fun day.
— Brett Emmons

You can check out the video below or on VEVO. Please share it on your social networks and help us spread the word!

Kingston Show February 24th - SOLD OUT


We're so excited to announce our homecoming show, scheduled for Saturday, February 24th at the Rogers K-Rock Centre in Kingston. This show also celebrates the K-Rock Centre's 10 year anniversary, after The Hip opened the venue back in February of 2008.

First of all, it’s good to be home. Secondly, to play a stage like this where I’ve seen so many great artists perform over the last ten years is an honour and a privilege. Three years ago this wasn’t even fathomable. We’re coming off our biggest Canadian tour to date, and to come back home and celebrate with our friends, our family and our city is extremely fulfilling.
— Brett Emmons

Update (11/24): Tickets for this show are now sold out. Thanks to everyone who purchased!

Well, fuck. This is exciting. Thanks to everyone who grabbed tickets, the hometown show is sold out. We will see you in February to celebrate!
— Brett and the boys
