SPECIAL PERFORMANCE UPDATE - PLEASE NOTE DATE CHANGE
Event organizers have moved the date to SUNDAY SEPT 14! Same times as scheduled.
On June 17th a tornado touched down in Angus, Ontario Canada and carved a path of destruction that changed many lives forever. It is also the hometown of Transistor's Steve Wishart. Fortunately, nobody in the small town was killed, but many homes were damaged or destroyed leaving people to pick up the pieces.
We'll be performing at the Angus Tornado Benefit Concert to help raise funds for those affected by the damage of the twister. We hope that you can join us and many other bands for a great cause and great music and help a community heal.

GLIMPSE BECOMES OUR MOST VIEWED VIDEO
When we released our video for Glimpse, we were just happy to have something different than us just playing our instruments on film. We sat down and put pencil to paper and came up with a storyline that not only fit the song, but transcended the page.
Since it's debut we have recieved great praise and attention for Glimpse and the message it sends. It has aired on AUX tv and viewed internationally, even catching the eyes of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and their founder, and fellow Canadian, Capt. Paul Watson.
From all of us in the band, and those behind the camera, we would like to thank you for viewing Glimpse and making it our most watched video. If you haven't seen the video yet, please watch it below and check out what can be done with a little bit of imagination and a shoestring budget!
