The Lonely Parade

Lonely Parade is the tightly knit art-punk trio of childhood friends Augusta Veno (guitar/vocals), Charlotte Dempsey (bass/vocals), and Frank Climenhage (drums). Formed when they were in their early teens in the small Ontario town of Peterborough, they have become, six years later at barely 20 years old, one of the most buzzed about new bands in Canada. Touring the country as teenagers they have shared stages with Weaves, PUP, Ought, and Nap Eyes (who opened for Lonely Parade on one of their first tours), appeared on festival stages at Sled Island and Lawnya Vawnya, and in 2017 played outside of Canada for the first time upon being invited to the Iceland Airwaves festival. With all three members now of age and out of school the band relocated to Montreal and spent the end of last year commuting back and forth to Toronto to work on their Buzz Records debut with producer/engineer Josh Korody (Fucked Up, Weaves, Dilly Dally) and Shehzaad Jiwani of Greys at Toronto’s Candle Recording Studio. The resultant LP, entitled The Pits, refines the technically complex instrumentation and hooky fuzz-blasted songwriting upon which the trio have built their budding reputation, drawing on influences ranging from the warped punk hooks of Uranium Club, to the guitar interplay of cult Canadian band Women, to releases from Lonely Parade's now Buzz Records label mates Weaves and Dilly Dally.
Little Lungs is a four-piece band based in Baltimore, MD. Fronted by singer/songwriter Leena Rhodes, Little Lungs combines pop melodies, grungy yet groovy guitar riffs, and earnest lyrics to create soulful, emotive indie rock. Ethan Salem (lead guitar), Jordan Mercer (bass), and Erik Schwarzenberg (drums) back it up with some float, funk, and feel.
Little Lungs released their self-titled EP in the Spring of 2017, followed by Get Your Kicks and Go, a four-song EP, this January, 2019.
