Canadian indie rockers unveil new supergroup

anywaygang

Hollerado frontman, Menno Versteeg revealed yesterday by way of his personal Instagram account that he has been working with fellow Canadian musicians to create a new supergroup.

The collaboration will be known as Anyway Gang and includes Sam Roberts (Sam Roberts Band), Dave Monks (Tokyo Police Club), Chris Murphy (Sloan), and Versteeg (Hollerado) himself. 

Supposedly, the musicians bonded last summer over some unfinished 3-chord songs and eventually came to the realization that they had enough material to release a full album.

Last summer I got together with a few of my tour buds who also happen to be some of my favourite songwriters. We mostly made dad jokes but we also jammed on a bunch of 3 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 lets name ourselves the first thing we thought of and release these. Anyway, we’re called Anyway Gang [...].

According to Versteeg, Anyway Gang's first track, "Big Night", is expected to be released in the coming weeks. Little more is known at this time about the project other than a vague bio which reads: "Chris, Sam, Menno, Dave. Three chord maximum."

 

Hollerado released their final album, Retaliation Vacation in June and will be kicking off their farewell tour late this September.
