If there's a band that could be defined as a next generation of Canadian rock from the 90's and 2000's - thought of by many as Canada's golden era of rock - it may just be The Bleeding Lights.
The Bleeding Lights was formed by three members of the band The Tenth Planet, a former 97.7 HTZ FM Rock Search finalist with past albums produced by The Tea Party's Jeff Martin and founding Our Lady Peace guitarist, and current Crash Karma guitarist/producer, Mike Turner. After finding a fresh new sound and style in front-man Owen Kelly, the band re-formed itself as The Bleeding Lights and went immediately to work writing and demoing material, and then into the studio with producer Mike Turner again at his Pocket Studios in Toronto. A debut album with big ambitions, additional production for it was done in Melbourne, Australia by Mark Kelson at Kelsonic Studios, with mixing handled by the member of another household name in the Canadian rock cannon, guitarist for the band Moist, Mark Makoway.
It wasn't long after wrapping their debut album, From Here To The Truth, that 'The Lights' were taking the torch from their studio collaborators and hitting the new rock discovery lists of Canadian rock radio stations like 94.9 The Rock FM's Generation Next, Hamilton's Y108 Rocks, and London's FM96. Shortly following these new rock list additions, the band opened for another great Canadian 'golden era' band Big Wreck at Toronto's Danforth Music Hall for their most recent "Ghosts" album tour.
With many more stops to go on the Canadian map to take the stage, and new music in the works and supported by one of the main supporters of the Canadian music industry FACTOR, The Bleeding Lights see their current successes as just the beginning in their role of building the next generation of great Canadian rock.
