September 2, 2022 in Artist News
“Hope on the Radio”, the 6th and final track off of W3APONS 2021 debut EP “Adios Radio” charted at #37 on the Canadian Active Rock Charts on Sunday, August 21st. With this news, the Saskatoon rock trio attained a milestone of having each single on the album break the Top 40 on the Canadian Active Rock Charts. The EP’s singles and standings were:
Bye Baby Gone (#8)
I Am the Horizon (#16)
Broken Promises (#18)
Gotta Stop (#24)
Hope on the Radio (#32)
Unnecessary Evil (#34)
“This EP was put together in a number of studios across Canada and the songs each have their own character,” says Jordan Welbourne, guitarist/vocalist for the band. “We never thought in our wildest dreams that an EP released during the pandemic would have attained a milestone like this, we’re incredibly honoured that Canadian Rock Radio gave each song an opportunity!”
In addition to their terrestrial radio charting successes, tracks from the ironically titled “Adios Radio” have been featured in NHL broadcasts, MLB broadcasts, CFL broadcasts, Spotify Editorial Playlists, and Sirius XM.
The band is ecstatic to announce this milestone as an independent band. “Hope on the Radio” will have an accompanying music video released in September 2022, directed by award-winning film maker Lee Chambers.
Having just got off tour with The Trews this summer, W3APONS has already begun writing and recording new material to be released as soon as fall of this year.
W3APONS will be performing two home province shows in Saskatoon on Saturday, September 3 at Coor’s Event Centre, and in Regina on Friday, Sept 9 at The Exchange.
