NEW YORK (Top40 Charts/ Skylar Entertainment) - With overwhelming Canadian fan support, UK pop punkers Buck Brothers are making their 3rd trip to Toronto in 18 months. This time for Canadian Music
Week and a mini tour around Ontario and Quebec.
This power pop trio from across the pond brings with them the raucous attitude and excitement we all hope for when we go out to see a great live show. Raised on the finest pop Britain has to offer, these three lads have joined forces to create something very special – pop music as it should be, incredibly catchy and at times addictively hummable. One listen to the single 'Girls, Skirts, Boots, Bikes' and you won't get it out of your head.
Packed with 12 songs and clocking in at just less than 35 minutes, the bands debut Me is rife with 3-minute pop gems. Every song on Me is equally catchy, so much so that MTV's wildly popular realities show My Super Sweet 16 series has licensed the entire debut for the soundtrack. The show's music supervisor at MTV USA feels that the group's sound will compliment this infamous coming of age show in a sweet and super manner.
The Buck Brothers are not brothers, but friends' bassist/lead singer Andy Duke, guitarist Pete Sellers and new drummer Horatio Agar, whose music is making a major contribution to the exploding British post-punk scene. The Bucks also boast an impressive list of fans, including none other than Daniel 'Harry Potter' Radcliffe, who was quoted on his official website as saying: 'Buck Brothers are my new favourite.'
With national Canadian distribution for their debut album Me on Fading Ways Music Artist Collective set for February 27th and a national publicity and campus radio campaign, the Buck Brothers are ready to make their mark on Canada.
'We're extremely appreciative of our Canadian fans and, thanks to them 'getting us' first - they make-up some of our band's longest standing followers too,' says Duke. 'Rather than feeling like three fish out of water when we cross the pond, our Canadian fans feel like a 'home crowd' when we play there. When in Canada - Buck Brothers become a Canadian band, albeit one with silly accents.'
