Formed in the secluded woods of North Western Ontario, 1971 are a heavy and melodic rock band ascribed to an essentialist meaning of punk. Their sound is dynamic as their lyrics and instrumentation range from slow/heavy beats to mid-tempo hooks and interchangeable melodies with an essential rock element. Many of their songs hang in the balance between country/folk song structure with a grunge and post-punk sound. Harbouring a noisy domineering lush soundscape like a well-kept garden, 1971 have been compared to great Canadian acts such as The Constantines, Attack in Black and The Plan, as well as American outfits Fugazi and Title Fight. They have been touring since their second release and continue to reach and venture through the highways. Their self-titled release received critical acclaim within Canada, America's Razorcake and Maximum Rock n Roll magazine and their music has reached the radio waves of Central and Southern America and Europe. The band released a new cassette in April 2016 on Blind Eye Records and Le Mort in Canada and are touring the east coast of Canada this August and September.
