Double Experience

Ottawa, Ontario
"Your life is it's own unique RPG; we're just the soundtrack."
Double Experience – nerd rockers from Canada's capital city - play on the hardest difficulty settings the music industry has to offer. Since 2014, Double Experience have logged hundreds of performances across 16 countries with no additional power-ups provided by external agencies or labels. From the BBC Introducing Stage to Global TV, their global rock takeover is palpable. Their recent album, “Unsaved Progress” (recorded with Al Jacob and Kit Walters) was released on April 8, 2016 and reached #6 on Canada's National Loud Chart backed by critical-acclaim from international rock and metal press.

Double Experience's affinity for all things nerdy have found the band releasing their music on collectible trading cards, performing at video game museums, and encouraging show attendees to join the band in competitive video-games and cosplay. It's no wonder, then, that Ian Nichols (vocals, bass) and Brock Tinsley (guitar) exercise their multiplayer tendencies both in studio and onstage. Some formal collaborations include Fred Mascherino (TAKING BACK SUNDAY, TERRIBLE THINGS) and Steve Bache (HE IS LEGEND).

Recently, their song Destiny rock anthem “The Glimmer Shot” garnered praise and in-game rewards from Bungie, the developers of the game. This match-making between video games and Double Experience music had previously been realized when the band penned theme music for “The Legend of Thunder”, a YouTube personality with over 130 million channel views as of 2017. Double Experience have now begun to share their story via music industry conventions (IndieWeek) to the next wave of bands who will take control of their own destinies.
