Handsome Distraction

Handsome Distraction has taken a steady approach toward breaking into the rock music scene since its formation in 2009. Its refreshing, upbeat rock sound and authentic and energetic stage performance sets them aside from the surplus of others trying to make it big.

Devin Perfect sings with passion and power while blazing his two-step around the stage, Joey Mono's leads stay with you like a well placed catch phrase, while Chris Weaver dances his fingers over the bass’ fretboard, all supported by Kyle White’s robust nerve pulsing rhythms. Handsome Distraction’s talented quartet successfully combines the eclectic influences of bands like Weezer, Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon, and the Pixies.

Handsome Distraction have successfully recorded and released three EP’s over three years. Their latest EP, "A Mighty Roar," was released in May 2013. It was recorded at The Noise Floor Recording Studio with engineer Jordan Koop and mixed/mastered by Adam Sutherland at Infinity Studios. The band continues to earn their place among the best in Canadian rock music, as well as their ever-growing online presence and catching music, capturing the awe of their fans and attention of industry representatives.

The band had a very successful 2012. They released their second EP, “Fight or Flight,” which has received high acclaim. The band also went on a successful Canadian tour that August, catching the eye of fans, promoters and managers across the country.

So far, 2013 has had the band showcasing at Canadian Music Week in Toronto, a slot at the Telus World Ski & Snowboard Festival, the release of their new EP, "A Mighty Roar" which continues to chart and earn radio play on college and mainstream stations across the country. Andrew King, editor of Canadian Musician Magazine said “I was really impressed by their performance when I caught them back in May. To be totally frank, I didn't think it would translate as well to the CD (based solely on history), but I was wrong.”

Handsome Distraction will be embarking on a western Canadian tour this September, followed by performances at Indie Week Canada in Toronto and CBGB Festival in New York this October and a US tour this winter.

With tight arrangements, natural flare, and catching songs, this band has it all. Keep your eyes on these guys and your radios dialed in as Handsome Distraction makes their way through a city near you.
