Orillia, ON’s deviant melodic math metallers LIKE ANIMALS announce they will be continuing their Eastern Canadian Tour of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Ontario after bassist Myke Caouette’s suffered injuries from a high speed collision that occurred on July 11th on highway 400 and caused his vehicule to burst into flames, forcing him to pull himself out of the wreck and out of harms way. Caouette’s injuries aren’t life threatening, but will need time to heal as he endured a fractured ankle, shattered kneecap, broken femur and sprained ribs.
“I’m happy to be alive, but sad not be on the road with my brothers in LA. I want to thank everyone for their well wishes and I’m glad to be out of hospital. Please support the band along with our touring mates (U) The Band. I will be back on the road for our Western Canadian tour in October.” says Caouette’s
Caouette’s will be replaced by bassist Rufus Cavan of (U) The Band who will be performing double duty for both bands on the Eastern Canadian tour.
The tour will kick off with a performance at the East Coast Awakening Festival in Keswick, NB on July 31st on the FNG Stage (set time – 12:40pm- 1:20pm), which includes a line-up of Silverstein, The Agonist, Cauldron, Sewn Eyes, Nervosa among many more bands from Eastern Canada.
LIKE ANIMALS‘ tour is in support of their new EP ‘Feral’ released at the beginning of January 2016 to follow their previous animal-themed EPs ‘Sweet Whispers, Plagued Ears’, ‘The Undertoad’ and ‘The Wild’.
Aug 13 – Quebec City, QC – Le Sous-Sol Du Cercle
Like Animals are breaking free of the constricting chains of modern music and are busy creating their own uninhibited style of spastic-math-metal graced with emotionally-charged vocals. Like a wild animal each member maintains a sense of chaos through their arpeggio guitar and bass sections, unorthodox drums peppered with dynamic changes, and finally tempered by the wavering vocals soaring just slightly above the instrumentals both in tone and feeling. The beasts within the band each perform vocal duties a sound akin to a coyote-esque choir featuring Jamie Haffenden on guitar and lead vocals, Will Tennant on drums, Myke Caouette on bass.
Their name is synonymous with their song-writing and attitude, where they are part of a pack, but still remain hungry and solitary, like a stray animal. Their 400-show track record over the years reveals their dedication to their craft having shared the stage with such bands as Fuck The Facts, Dog Fashion Disco, Adrenechrome, Downtown Brown, Scale The Summit, Polkadot Cadaver, Teethmarks and many more.
With four animal-themed EPs in tow (‘Sweet Whispers, Plagued Ears, The Undertoad, The Wild) and their new release called ‘Feral’ unleashed on January 22nd, 2016, the band is constantly working to create a continuously more mature and higher caliber sound. The group hunts and writes as a unit by drafting and evolving each song with each giving their own input.
Lyrics contend with themes such as: self-doubt, lack of self-worth, depression, anxiety, and the like. Like Animals continue to push the boundaries of the several genres which they base their experimental music on while committing to the best music they can produce.
