Southern Saskatchewan’s rock group Maxstone has a long musical history of friends playing together, and that bond is apparent as the members infuse intense melodic vocals with punk, metal and hard rock. High energy live performances and to the point songwriting best describe them. Past experience is prominent in their vision. With speeding rhythms and pulse-driven riffs to ambient interludes, Maxstone’s soundscape is becoming more diverse than ever before.
2016 saw the group open for some heavy-hitting acts in the industry: The Wild!, Art of Dying and The Supersuckers to name a few. In November 2016, the guys started production on their debut full length - “The Wake” at Blue Door Studios in Regina, SK. The album had been in the writing stage for the past 3 years, since the release of “Decade E.P” in 2014. The band’s latest effort “The Wake” is influenced by Canadian hard hitters Propagandhi and experimental rockers Thrice, but also presents a softness sprinkled throughout the album reminiscent of The Watchmen and Choke.
“The Wake” is scheduled to be released in early September, with release shows to be scheduled throughout winter, and a support tour to follow in Spring 2018.
