TELE rumbles down back alleys and downtown streets, where grown men nod their respect to the resonant barrage of guitars and
young girls coo to the sexy-smooth melodies; those too old to rock and roll fade in the wake of something new.

After hearing TELE, it becomes obvious why Chart Magazine says that they're "all pomp and plenty of circumstance, this is modern. music for the modern mind Tele's music [is] epic in scope." Their fan base continues to grow exponentially, because Tele's music finds that unmistakable balance - creating striking soundscapes that vary from the wounded to the hopeful, but are always ripe with emotion. "I like my music to be dramatic and dynamic, something you can feel," says frontman Matt Worobec.

TELE formed in their hometown of Winnipeg, Canada in 2003. The band's makeup is that of vocalist and guitarist Matt Worobec, key-boardist Zack Antel, bassist Brendan Berg and Derek Allard on drums. Shortly after recording their first demos they caught the attention of the music industry with showcases at North by Northeast, Canadian Music Week and Junofest.

In 2006 their songs "Choose" and "Lullaby" made it to #1 on Winnipeg's 92.9 KickFM for several weeks in a row, and currently remain in regular to high rotation on Hot 103 Winnipeg, the Edge 102.1 in Toronto, Calgary's X92.9, 102.9 in Edmonton and nationally on XM Radio. As well, in the summer of 2007 network television approached the band to use one of their songs for NBC's "Science of Love".

Voted as one of Canada's Top Breakout Bands of 2007 by Chart Magazine the band attracted the attention of 3-time Grammy winner,
David Bottrill (Tool, Peter Gabriel, Silverchair) earlier that year. Bottrill loved the fusion of hypnotic melodies and crunchy guitar angst, and the
band focused on recording with Bottrill and John Paul Peters (Comeback Kid, The Waking Eyes) in summer of 2007.

"Too many bands release an album a year (after forming), then are going, "Why the hell did we release that?" Now we're finally in that place
where we think we've found our groove," says Worobec. Packed with song writing chops, the quartet's music is soaked in the atmosphere that allows the human condition to survive, who ever they are, wherever you are.
