For over a decade, The Anti-Queens have been a prominent force in Toronto's music scene. The Anti-Queens are led by the fiercely talented and dynamic duo of Emily Bones and Valerie Knox, who bring a punk-rock energy that challenges the male-dominated music industry. Known for their electrifying live performances, they've gained a reputation for their unstoppable energy and powerful stage presence.

The advance single “Doomed Again” embodies the essence of blistering 1977 punk, infused with just the right touch of Bad Religion and Green Day to keep it fresh and driving. The Anti-Queens skillfully pay tribute to their enduring punk roots while injecting enough energy to keep it from feeling derivative.Featuring lyrics that intertwine defiance with sincerity, razor-sharp hooks, and a musical style that epitomizes the essence of "rock 'n' roll," The Anti-Queens are back with a vengeance.

Founded back in 2012 by the visionary singer/songwriter Emily Bones, The Anti-Queens have been carving their unique mark on the international punk rock landscape. With a sound as defiant as their name suggests, they blend raw energy, lyrical depth, and an unapologetic stage presence that captivates audiences everywhere they go. They've embarked on extensive tours across Canada, the United States, and Europe, sharing stages with notable acts like Danko Jones, Streetlight Manifesto, and Protest The Hero. Their festival performances include appearances at 77 MTL, Montebello Rockfest, and Pouzza Fest, among others, showcasing their ability to captivate audiences on a grand scale. Throughout their journey, The Anti-Queens have remained a symbol of resilience, creativity, and the unbreakable bond of music. Their narrative is a testament to their ability to adapt, overcome, and inspire, connecting with audiences around the globe through electrifying performances and a genuine commitment to their craft. The new album is absolutely rammed with massive pop-punk-rock anthems. From defiant ragers to heartfelt angry love songs to scathing social castigations, Disenchanted is set to be the summertime favorite for rebels, misfits and outcasts.
