The Standstills highly anticipated full length album “Badlands” is about defining their craft and broadening their horizon. “It’s a mixed bag of sexy psychedelic guitar driven outlaw rock and roll” lead singer and guitarist Jonny Fox declares. The Canadian rock duo is already off to a great start with their latest single “Wild” featuring a co-write with Three Days Grace member Neil Sanderson. The track is a hypnotic high-powered number with a magnetic and gritty guitar lick featuring Couture’s mountainous drums all topped with Fox’s dynamic and vigorous vocal. The Standstills have paired these elements seductively with psychedelic imagery putting this duo in the sights of trend setters and hard rockers alike. This record follows the success of their 2015 EP “From The Devil’s Porch featuring “Orleans” which reached #4 on BDS active rock charts in Canada and “Rise of the Fall” also reaching top 10 in Canada. As a result The Standstills were awarded Best New Rock Group at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. The album also received over 1.4 million streams globally and the band performed extensively across Canada with acts such as Pop Evil, Billy Talent, Theory of a Deadman, Sebastian Bach, Seether, Eagles of Death Metal, Monster Truck and many more. More recently The Standstills accomplished their first European/ UK tour with Australian rockers The Lazys this past winter having played 18 shows in 9 countries. Prior to that the band toured the U.S. and Canada with Sebastian Bach in the summer.
