Ottawa, ON
Hard Rock
CeVILAIN is a hard rock band that clearly stands out for the genre – they craft thunderous pieces that aspire to evoke positivity, unity, and acceptance rather than solely expressing simple angst and discord. They channel their creative energies into captivating tracks whose impact is only surpassed by their energetic live performance and their ability to engage their audience.

Inspired by titans of the genre – Breaking Benjamin, Bring Me The Horizon, and Thrice – CeVILAIN is a band that will never be satisfied resting on their laurels. Building upon the success of their first EP – the independently produced and released “RISE” (2018) – the band is back with new material that forges ahead their heavy, melodic and driven sound.

Mixed by Mike Langford (Deadset Society) and mastered by Peter Leitros (Wreckhouse Mastering), the new single “Better Angels” showcases their ability of hammering home searing instrumentation with soaring melody and harmony. This ability is on full display as the vocals play off each other before coming together in a massive chorus hook.

CeVILAIN was formed in Ottawa, Canada in 2018 and quickly became the go-to, must see artist in the Nation’s Capital. In short order their first single – “Hush” – surpassed 10,000+ streams across all platforms and has become a mainstay, and regular request, on rock radio. The band has shared the stage with talent such as: Adam Gontier, Bif Naked, Jeff Martin, One Bad Son, Crown Lands, The Lazys, and Richie Kotzen.
