Toronto, CANADA (Top40 Charts/ Skylar Entertainment)
With their debut album set for release in Canada on June 25, 2013 via DEP/Universal and summer touring in the works, UK boy band Frixion are off to a fantastic start expanding their fan base in North America. The trio's first stop upon arrival in Toronto was the top national TV morning show Canada AM for a performance of the first single "Under The Influence." That single went on to win 5 times in a row on Ottawa's Hot 89.9's battle of the beats defeating top artists Maroon 5, Mariah Carey, Miguel, Cody Simpson
Canada has welcomed the boys with open arms. "So far our time in Canada has been amazing," says David
Stanton. "Just to be in this beautiful country is a blessing in its self. We can't wait to start touring here." Neil Painter says "it's a beautiful country with beautiful people who have been very welcoming." "Everyone over here has been so friendly!," exclaims Johnny Wright, "we've already made some friends for life in the few weeks we have been here. Toronto is a beautiful city and we are looking forward to exploring the rest of Canada!."
After a trip to New York last week for record label meetings, Frixion will be on the town in Toronto this week hitting many North By North East showcases and BBQs followed by the Much Music
Video Awards events and parties on the weekend. The band hopes that Much Music
and other video stations will embrace the video for "Under The Influence
" and is looking forward to touring Canada late summer and early fall.

Neil Painter and David
Stanton met in school and decided to start a new boy band with an R&B edge. After holding open auditions they found Johnny Wright and Frixion was formed. They signed to Famecity Entertainment, the home of FDM after being scouted by President/CEO David Martin
Wade. The Birmingham and Blackpool born 3-piece soon re-located to London to concentrate on further touring as they supported artists such as Jessie
J, The Wanted, Tinie Tempah, Tinchy Stryder, Dizzee Rascal, Olly Murs, Chipmunk
Burke. Frixion was also one of N-DUBZ official support acts for their 'Uncle B' UK Tour.
In 2010, Frixion released their debut single "Afraid
" featuring vocals from FDM and hit the Top 20 on the U.K. R&B Club Charts. The trio's soulful vocals and first-class songwriting had them working with industry-leading producers and songwriters that are behind some of Europe's best selling artists, such as Davinchi (Estelle, Michelle Gayle), Grant Mitchell (Seal, Trevor Horn, Wet Wet Wet) and Judd Mahoney (Michael Jackson, Backstreet Boys, Boyz 11 men).
