What started as two brothers and their best friend getting together for some freestyle jams and demo recordings in 2005 soon evolved into enough written material for two EPs and the birth of a new full-blown band, Blind Race, in 2007.
Drawing inspiration from their love of fast cars and the intrigue of driving them blind, as well as modern-day racial issues and the idea that we are all the same, the award nominated (Toronto Independent Music Awards: Best Live Metal Act Nomination (2012), Best Metal Act Nomination (2010)), Blind Race arrived at a name packed with meaning to match its melting pot sound.
Putting emphasis on musical identity and creativity, the then Toronto four-piece released Seeing Red in 2008, unleashed Lost in 2012 and grew to a five piece that is now ready to unveil its third EP, Come and Get It.
Produced by Mike Langford whom has worked with upcoming and established artists such as Evans Blue, Parabelle, Charlie Hope, Rains, Hawksley Workman, Sloan, Ian Thornley (Big Wreck), Jeff Martin (Tea Party), Crash Karma, Art Of Dying, Shiloh, Dane Hartsell, Rex Goudie, and Tupelo Honey plus mastered by Chris Crerar at Toronto’s fame Metalwork Studios.
The powerful, heavy, dark yet bright, five track record is inspired by the many facets of life itself with song titles such as Hypocrite, title track Come And Get It, Truth or Dare, Hopeless and Gone.
“You can be up or down, but no matter what you have to keep fighting and moving on,” explains drummer Stelio Kentros. “When someone wants to take everything away from you, they can come and get it, but that doesn’t mean they will succeed.” An idea at the heart of the Blind Race philosophy.
Come and Get it is due out on November 11, 2014 and will be available on itunes, bandcamp and all major online retailers.
