Hailing from Canada's capital city, WE WERE SHARKS (previously SHARKS!) is a 6 piece pop-punk powerhouse poised to take the world by storm. Drawing influence from pop-punk bands of yesteryear and combining it with todays more polished and aggressive sound, this band has what it takes to infect your iPod, and have you singing along for years to come.
Starting as nothing more than a side project for guitarist Terrence McAuley and drummer Will Plummer as an excuse to hang out, goof off and play some sweet pop-punk, WE WERE SHARKS has come a long way. With the addition of Randy Frobel on main vocal duties, Graham Finnigan on guitars, Alex Duquette and Marco Mion on bass and keyboard respectively, this well-rounded lineup is no stranger to the tour van. After rising from the ashes of previous bands, WE WERE SHARKS have the know-how and resources to hit the road full tilt and never look back.
Armed with a self-recorded and produced 5 track EP entitled " Holy Rip", a 3 track sophomore effort "Three For Free" and a brand new 10 track full length "Highways", WE WERE SHARKS has every intention of getting their music to the fan every way possible. Whether it be countless nights spent in the van, late night college radio shows, or just giving away CD's to anyone who will listen, this band embraces hard work and the rewards that come from it.
Coming out of the basement firing on all cylinders, WE WERE SHARKS is steamrolling ahead with the plan to party, high-five and steal the hearts of fans across Canada and the world
