Check Out: The Sound I Know
In 2010, Ontario-based Curbside formed from the ashes of two area-veteran, skate-punk bands that had crashed and burned. “After splitting up with our respective bands, each member still had that itch they just couldn't scratch and had to get back on stage,” says bassist Rob Callaghan. The quartet released their first full length, The Sound I Know in June, which he describes as “high-energy, melody driven, all-around good time” music. Their influence from fast punk bands from back in the day mixed with modern styles has added a new spin on Curbside’s sound, which the band welcomes you to hear for yourself.
