BELIEFS started abruptly when Josh Korody and Jesse Crowe met at good friend and former Bassist, Patrick McCormack’s birthday party and couldn’t stop talking about the music of the 90’s. Through the love of My Bloody Valentine and Sonic Youth, the memory of reverb and fuzz was revisited and Beliefs was formed.

“On November 13, Hand Drawn Dracula will release Beliefs’ Leaper, which has to be one of the year’s more solid shoegaze/dream pop records.” ~ UNDER THE RADAR (US)

Since their formation in 2010, Beliefs have released a two song single and b-side (Untitled, 2012 HDD) as well as a full length record (self titled, 2013 HDD, Manimal, No Pain In Pop) and are currently set to release their follow up, Leaper via HDD on October 23rd, 2015. Beliefs have been lucky enough to share the stage with fantastic artists such as; A Place to Bury Strangers, Disappears, The Breeders, Toy, Algiers, Moon Duo, Beach Fossils, Suuns, and Fucked Up.

“Prepare to get hooked on the glistening new album from fuzzy dream-pop band, Beliefs” ~ DAZED (UK)

Beliefs are prolific artists and musicians in the Toronto music scene, with Crowe recording in projects PRAISES and ROLEMODEL, and Korody as a founding member of WISH and NAILBITER as well as producing countless projects at his Candle Recordings studio. Beliefs are now set to present Leaper at shows and to festivals such as Supercrawl, POP Montreal, and New York’s CMJ along side the Hand Drawn Dracula family.

“25 years from now, when “dream pop” returns from a number of years of exile, it may very be records like Leaper that inspire the next generation of shoe-gazers” ~ KCRW (US)
