4 Canadian Rockers Come Together As Anyway Gang
Four veteran Canadian musicians have teamed up to create a supergroup – and their first single is coming soon.
Anyway Gang consists of Sam Roberts, Menno Versteeg of Hollerado, Dave Monks of Tokyo Police Club and Chris Murphy of Sloan.
“Last summer I got together with a few of my tour buds who also happen to be some of my favourite songwriters,” explained Vesteeg, in an Instagram post. “We mostly made dad jokes but we also jammed on a bunch of [three-chord] songs we all had lying around.
“We recorded a bunch of stuff in a few days and over the year we’d add some ideas here and there and all of a sudden a year had past and we realized we had kinda an album so we said [let’s] name ourselves the first thing we thought of and release these.”
The debut single “Big Night” is expected to drop “in a few weeks,” according to a post on the band’s new Instagram account. In a second post, they captioned a photo of the group: “Will these 4 acquaintances become friends? Which 2 are the studs? What are they doing? What have they done? So many questions? Stay tuned.”
