Toronto band F-105 releases debut album
Local Toronto indie rock band F-105 is releasing their much anticipated debut self-titled record Friday April 27th, with a live performance at The Supermarket, Toronto. The album’s lead single ‘Rebel Girl’ received wide coverage and critical acclaim in with the group’s growing global Star Wars fandom fanbase. With play and interviews on a wide variety of popular Star Wars podcasts. ‘Rebel Girl’ (video) will also make it debut soon on Canadian national CBC show, The Next Chapter. F-105 will release their second single ‘Desert Planet,’ this April.
The 8 song album was a 2 year recording journey for the band. It continues to combine mythic archetypes and ‘heros journey’ themes, in songs like ‘Rebel Girl’ and ‘Desert Planet’ along with Canadian storytelling, on songs like ‘No Man’s Land and ‘Viljo & Elsa’. The latter song and others, like ‘October 1st’ and ‘Mileage’, push their alternative rock sound into new skies with the use of the Finnish stringed Kantele instrument.
F-105 is planning summer 2018 tour dates in support of the album.
Here’s what others are already saying about F-105:
“It’s a great song (Rebel Girl)! Love the harmonies and the bass beat!”
– THERESA DELGADO, Fangirls Going Rogue
“I love Rebel Girl! The bass line is awesome, I couldn’t stop tapping my feet!”
– DAN ZEHR, Coffee With Kenobi
“Loved Rebel Girl, and the timely message of the chorus. Really dug the bass line, the octave vocals, and that keyboard solo – total Ray Manzarek vibe (Break on Through, yeah!). The 80s alt/60s acid vibe fits the rebellious spirit nicely.”
– DAVID W. COLLINS, Star Wars Celebration host
“F105 is exactly what you’d expect from a band who’s stolen their name from the most mysterious elements of Canadian aerospace myth and legend [The CF-105 Avro Arrow]. Just like its name sake, F105 brings the listener on a journey that is sleek in design, cutting the edge of all sonic barriers before them and landing the listener in the heart of every matter they’ve put to tape, track after track. One part geek-dom, one part pop rock and one part solid musicianship, equate to a band and album that push the listener into the stratosphere of the new can-pop-rock landscape. Be one of the rst to jump aboard!”
– STEVE KRAUS, DJ CKLU 96.7FM, Sudbury ON
