Toronto punk act Deforesters will release their debut LP "Leonard" on February 25, 2017 through Black Numbers. They are streaming the album in full now and you can check it out bbelow.
Here's that the band had to say about Leonard:
"We recorded it at Drive Studios with Steve Rizun (Flatliners, Junior Battles, Creepshow, Success). We recorded the album in a few big chunks followed by lots of piecemeal days to finish stuff up. Musically I would say we want to achieve the following: finely tuned pop songs played through a modern punk aesthetic and sensibility with nods to classic punk rock like the Ramones, Dead Kennedys and Buzzcocks as well as a wide array of outside influences like classic rock and pop, folk, country, Tin Pan Alley and traditional heavy metal. I would describe lyrical themes as the inevitability of both change and stagnation, ennui, the difficulty of maintaining meaningful relationships, the feeling of isolation and invisibility one experiences in large urban centres and self-deprecation ."
