Hometown: Moncton, New Brunswick


The Motorleague play fast and riffy, pelvic rock and roll that is catchy as sin but won‚??t leave you feeling guilty for liking it.

Their appeal lies in songwriting that is chemically addictive and a spits out product drenched in sarcasm. – Simply put — the anthem to every bad break–up, asshole boss, or shit job you‚??ve ever had.

The Motorleague‚??s debut full length was recorded in 2008 with veteran producer Ian Blurton at Toronto‚??s Chemical Sound Studios. It was released on May 19th, 2009 by the Forward Music Group. ‚??Black Noise‚?Ě is 10 relentless tracks of fury driven rock and roll with a BPM that won‚??t drop below 140 with energy and raw aggression rarely captured when recording. Since the release of the record, the band has been touring hard with dates all over The Atlantic Provinces, Quebec and Ontario. With stops at ECMA, North by North East, and COCA 2009 — the band has racked up more km‚??s this year than most will see throughout a career.
