This FRIDAY THE 13th showcases the talents of former Incura guitarist Gatlin Fitzgerald guesting with Season To Attack on a bill with some of Vancouver's best upcoming bands. Gatlin brings a dark flash-blast of sound influenced by Japanese video games & MIDI metal to the STA collective for one night only - expect to hear songs from their Threads and Fibres EP reimagined especially for this evening, as well as new material and fresh collaborative efforts!

SEASON TO ATTACK delivers a pleasurably devastating sonic invasion, gathering territory and spreading their infectious message to the unsuspecting masses. A multi-pronged, heavily armed guerilla militia featuring former members of Mass Undergoe and Irreverents, they specialize in heavy, pop-laced hooks with a trace of grinding R&B. "Everything a modern single should have, the hook of a guitar driven chorus and the vocals to match. I’m floored that the first release from a new band can be so brilliant.” - NewRock43

BLACKOUT LIGHTS - Chainsaw guitars. The smell of burnt rubber. Sonic earphoria. Slivers under your fingernails. Melodic. Abrasive. Dirty. A sense of purpose. And all the rock you can shake a stick at!

THE PIT - In the vein of killer classic bands like Black Sabbath, Kyuss and The Melvins, The Pit brings an energy that smacks all doubt square in the face with great originality and skill. Mixing elements of stoner rock, grunge, punk and metal, the band has achieved a sound that is both gritty and catchy, ranging from trippy to raw and in your face.

BLACK SUGAR is a refreshingly exciting band among the latest crop of intelligent and imaginative hard-rock hopefuls emerging from Vancouver's bountiful music scene. Powered by the winning charisma and multi-octaved Cornellian pipes of lead singer Rob Krys, Black Sugar carves out a gripping and unique blend of prog-fusion chops and funk-tinged hard rock.
