Touring across Eastern Canada this past April presented by PureGrainAudio.com, Toronto hard rockers UFORIA rolled through nine cities and four provinces in promotion of their latest EP ‘Fight or Flight’. During the tour, the 4 piece captured clips from the road and concerts to put together their latest music video “Overthrow”.
“Our East Coast Canadian tour created some of the greatest moments of our lives. Now we get to share them with all of you through our new video! “Overthrow”. I also like to add that so many of our fans would love to meet us but are in places we’ve yet to perform. This Overthrow video is a very personal and intimate take on Uforia’s live show and personalities. We hope that it will fill the void until we get back on the road.” comments vocalist / guitarist Michael Ursini.

The band has won a number of contests including the Hard Rock Rising Canada contest (2013), the opportunity to open for hometown heroes Billy Talent (2014) and the Jack Daniel’s Supporting Act contest (2016). “Fight or Flight” ranked #4 on the best songs of 2016 at CJIM Montreal’s Rock Station and 91X in Belleville.
