Born of several established Victoria bands, enters Solvent of Society. Formed around the idea that the people of earth are equal and the disregard for systems that oppress and degrade others. Solvent of Society delivers with meaningful lyrics regarding financial and political corruption, feeling lost in the world, and the struggles within youth. Influenced by the grunge attitude and sound of Nirvana, the strong opinions of Rage Against the Machine, as well as the laid back musical styling of Sublime.
Since its formation the band has played several venues on Vancouver Island including a Tour of the island with two sold out shows, the annual Moonfest festival, and house band status at Howler’s in Ucluelet. The band’s first recording (S.O.S) was well received among fans receiving over 1000 plays online. Since S.O.S was released the band has been working hard on recording their debut LP Throw the World Away. It will feature 9 tracks including a re-recording of their single Glory from their last release. The band plans to release a series of videos for this LP to accompany single releases throughout the summer.
Solvent of Society has partnered with Rosner Management Services and their sponsors, bringing new light on what is possible for the band. With this partnership the band hopes to get their music Canada wide or further within the next 2 years. “Solvent of Society is a group of hard-working and dedicated musicians I've gotten the opportunity to work alongside. Their grungy surf-rock carries a distinct west-coast vibe while still managing to break out on its own. Both as professional musicians and as songwriters, these guys make it seem easy to break out of the mold and stick in your head.”-Stefan Fulton Owner of Stay Heavy Studios. Now that you’ve made it this far why not stalk them all over the internet and help them reach their ultimate goal of world domination and or some free beer.
