All Day With It marks the major label debut of illScarlett. Recorded with superstar pop/rock producer Matthew Wilder (No Doubt’s Tragic Kingdom), the Sony BMG release finds the Mississauga quartet refining its Sublime-meets-No Doubt recipe with fist-pumping, summer defining punk/pop/reggae jams. Catchy sonic structures and sing-along choruses connect with the strong singles (“Heaters”, “One-A”) of their Red Ink release EPdemic but take illScarlett in new musical directions. The first single “Nothing Special” hit Canadian rock radio in early May and the response has been remarkable.

illScarlett has played hundreds of shows around the Toronto area and appeared at high visibility shows like the Vans Warped Tour in 2005 and 2006 and Edgefest 2006, as well as the inaugural Virgin Festival on Toronto Island. Sharing the stage with Billy Talent, the All-American Rejects, Slackers, Kardinal Offishall, Yellowcard and Cypress Hill helped position the band as the one to watch.

illScarlett has generated 500,000 MySpace plays and sold over 15,000 self-released CDs sold between their debut, illP, and Clearly In Another Fine Mess. EPdemic, the act’s 2006 set-up EP on the SONY BMG imprint Red Ink, debuted at #133 on the Top 200 Canadian Soundscan charts and has sold over 10,000 units to date. The record spawned two rock radio singles, “Heaters” (2000+ spins-rock radio, peaked at #32), and “One-A” (1000+ spins to date, and peaked at #17). The video for “One-A” received medium rotation on MuchMusic, heavy rotation on MuchLoud, and spent weeks in the Top 30 of Punch Much. continues to play the “One-A” video in regular rotation.
