With a name as unique and identifiable as their sound, Toronto, ON’s LAUGH AT THE FAKES is a band that challenges the trends of today’s rock and metal scene. Since the bands inception in 2010, LATF has combined elements of metal, hard rock, and prog to create an unmistakable sound. Debuting their six song EP ‘One Night Only’ in 2011, they return in 2014 with their latest offering ‘Dethrone The Crown’ their first full length produced by Greg Dawson and mastered by Andy VanDette (Rush, Dream Theatre, Kid Rock, Deep Purple, Bruce Dickenson, Bif Naked). Due out on November 14th, the band is now streaming the first single ‘Killing Time’.
Vocalist / guitarist Everett Mason comments:
“After months of writing, rehearsing, and recording, I am happy to say our brand new album “Dethrone The Crown” is complete. It has been a lot of hard work but I can confidently say that our band has never sounded better! Here is our brand new single “Killing Time.” I hope you enjoy it!”
“Laugh At The Fakes” features Everett Mason (Vocals and Guitar), Galen Weir (bass), Kevin Daliri (guitar) and Matthew Humphreys (drums).
Their debut six-song EP ‘One Night Only’ was released in 2011 and their 2014 follow-up full-length album, Dethrone the Crown, is scheduled to drop this fall on November 14th. Produced by Greg Dawson and mastered by Andy VanDette (Rush, Dream Theatre, Kid Rock, Deep Purple, Bruce Dickenson, Bif Naked) is a “no filler riffs, just money riffs”, as vocalist / guitarist Mason puts it, “the record deals with today’s most newsworthy topics: War, guns, murder and corruption. It’s real, it’s raw and, of course, it’s honest.’
Touring across Canada, the Toronto-based group has built a solid following with music that’s geared to stand the test of time. Heavy, melodic, crushing and catchy – Laugh at the Fakes is all that and more.
“It’s like they are a hard rock band that likes to explore their thrashy-side too. I love it because I enjoy the catchy melodic vocals but at the same time I can bang my head pretty seriously too. You don’t hear albums like this one very often, if at all. I can’t really think of anything that comes close to being like this album as a whole. ”- Rock Music Critic
