The Fast Romantics - S/T Release

Surviving a near-death experience, sleep deprivation, and sugar overload all in the making of their new album, The Fast Romantics continue to go for broke, along with the backing support of some boss industry and media players. Out on August 18th, their self-titled debut album is an imaginative and upbeat effort revealing Brit-pop and indie-rock influences, infinite passion, and distinguished talent.
“The Fast Romantics are one of the most promising bands listeners have yet to catch up with.”
- Calgary Sun

After catching the ear of legendary Mix Engineer Mike Fraser (Franz Ferdinand, Sam Roberts, AC/DC, Elvis Costello) the Calgary based quartet spent a few months recording the album in their self-financed Post/War Studios and hooked up with Grammy award winner Adam Ayan (Nirvana, Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters) to have it mastered.
"Being in this business almost 30 years I've heard lots of bands and lots of styles of music. Once in a blue moon a real gem comes along. Even in it's roughest state you know you're hearing something special and you want to be involved, period. It's just a matter of time before this band will be everywhere."
- Mike Fraser, Mix Engineer

The Fast Romantics played their first show with the current line-up in September 2007 and have since played alongside acts such as Stone Temple Pilots, The Flaming Lips, The Fratellis, and The Stills. They’ve had two top ten singles on commercial radio, features on CBC, continual praise in print, and a national tour including a headlining slot at this years Canadian Music Week.
