Quebec City, QC
Active since 2015, Casual Rites delivers an introspective, dreamy and liberating musical proposal, which combines raw and soulful melodies and riffs. Inspired by southern American traditions and by the roots of rock, blues and folk music, the band transmits its undeniable taste for life without constraint.
After a significant amount of shows across the province of Quebec, (including Festival d’été de Québec) and after releasing a self-produced EP as well as two music videos — “Unfettered” and “Shift” — which have been broadcasted on Much Loud, Musique Plus and Musimax—, the band launched it’s first self produced LP in 2017. The album received rave reviews from critics, including from Metro Journal in Montreal and CHOM FM and allowed the band to open for Grammy winners The War on Drugs during the Festival d’Été de Québec in 2018. Casual Rites also made an appearance at Canadian Music Week in Toronto and were invited to open for Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats during St-Roch Xperience the following fall.
It’s members are now working on a second album that should come out late 2019.
