Winnipeg, MB
Convention and compromise are enemies of creativity. They’re also ideas that the three members of Ex Ømerta have outright renounced in their pursuit of unadulterated musical exhilaration. The Winnipeg-based trio thrives in a setting of controlled chaos, refusing to adhere to any set of rules imposed on them. And they’ve heard their fair share in their time together – drummers can’t be lead singers. Bad Brains and Primus shouldn’t be uttered in the same breath as Queens of the Stone Age and The White Stripes… Ex Ømerta spits in their figurative faces.

Using the urban underground of Winnipeg as the inspirational landscape for their music, this three-piece outfit has carved a sound all their own. dirty, loud, and chaotic, yet sweet, melodic, and quirky all in one. They’ve been hard at work in 2018 sharing the stage with the likes of fellow rockers One Bad Son, The Wild! and The Lazys.

Forming in January 2017 and quickly pairing with Montreal-based producer Mike Nash (Blue Rodeo, Mise En Scene), Ex Ømerta is set to make waves with the release of their debut full-length record in 2019.
Never compromising originality for convention in anything they touch, Ex Ømerta play only to appease the need for adrenaline-fuelled anarchy in all of us.
