Montreal, QC’s THE SPINOFF are a fast pace melodic blast of nostalgia drawing upon inspiration from the late 90’s and early 00’s to forge a unique contribution to the second coming of pop-punk. The three piece rock outfit made up of long-time friends and collaborators Ben Cardilli (Guitar/Vocals), Dave Ritchie (Bass/Vocals), and Chris Johnston (drums) is actually a re-incarnation of their previously established Montreal based band Red October minus one player.
“The band name is a bit of an inside joke referring to the fact that the three of us used to play a similar style of music in Red October and now without our fourth member from that original lineup, we’re mixing things up again. If you’re familiar with your TV shows, it’s like “Joey” post “Friends” except hopefully more successful.” says vocalist / guitarist Ben Cardilli.
Focusing on a blend of modern punk and 90s alt rock similar to bands such as Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember, Blink 182, Everclear and Lit, THE SPINOFF are currently working on ten song debut album merging well-crafted and meaningful songs, almost of a singer-songwriter quality, with a fun and ferocious punk rock energy. Lyrically, the album is approached by Cardilli from personal experiences that everyone in a band can relate to as it reflects on the struggles of looking for happiness or acceptance and the strain their addiction to creating and playing music puts on their relationships.
“We want people to jam along and be pumped, but walk away from our records or shows with some perspective. We spent a lot of time writing and crafting the songs and in many ways we’re still polishing our sound, but for now we’re really excited about how the tracks complement each other. They all bring unique elements, but share a unifying voice. I think it’s going to be a strong first swing.”
Their first single “Something Buried” is set for release on August 8th and will be the perfect introduction to the trio.
“It’s a song about all the stages of a band breakup, from reviewing who contributed what to the kind of purgatory that follows, to finally deciding upon ways to let the dust settle and move forward.” adds Cardilli.
Live, THE SPINOFF’s performance is an infectious experience. Showcasing their obvious love for playing their music and leaving their audiences enjoying a moment that is like a friend’s fun hangout with cold brews and great tunes.
