St. John’s garage rock / power pop band The Connexions hold their album release show, for their debut album Connect Four, this Saturday at the Rose & Thistle in St. John’s. Joining them at the Rose are Thom & The Tomcats and Run to the Rocks.
The Connexions, featuring Adrian House (guitar, vocals), Marc Finch (guitar, vocals), Len O’Neil (bass, vocals) and Steve Doyle (drums, vocals) were formed in March of 2012 and recently showcased at Music NL Week 2013. The band has been playing steadily in St. John’s and completed a successful tour of Eastern Canada in September 2012.
For their debut album, The Connexions wanted to put the energy of their live shows into the recording. “We’re really happy with how it turned out” says House. “It’s a good mixture of songs, and Len did a great job getting the sound we wanted” adds Doyle (referring to bassist Len O’Neil, who also produced the album).
After the November 30th release, The Connexions plan to promote the album with shows around St. John’s and a tour in the Spring of 2014. Keep your eye out for this band on the rise.
