"Of all the bands we've seen thus far, this one has the most up-and-coming commercial potential. They're catchy new wave synth punk with just enough pop. The entire band exuded tremendous energy right from the get-go, which seemed to fill the entire space. What made this band's energy seem bigger was that they seemed to be having the time of their lives on stage (loved the keyboardist's acrobatics). They were all over the place and loving it."

THE NEW CITIES - 2011 After the resounding success of their 2009 debut album, Lost in City Lights, Montreal's The New Cities are heading back into the studio in early spring to making more great music. Known for their outrageously energetic live show, the band spent the past two years touring across Canada, the U.K., and France. Their hit single, "Dead End Countdown", reached Gold status and had them playing with the likes of Simple Plan, Marianas Trench, Metric and Katy Perry. Awards and accolades came pouring in; including a MuchMusic Video Award nomination, a JUNO Award nomination for New Group of the Year, and in songwriting with a SOCAN award. Melding elements of classic synth-pop to the power of dance and punk, their music has an intensely infectious sound, which has been featured on hit TV shows including Gossip Girl and Degrassi: The Next Generation.
