"Catchy melodies and big choruses help make their debut a record worthy of repeat listens, and “Company” is perhaps the best reflection of such talent in action.”  - Atwood Magazine

TORONTO, ON - JANUARY 21, 2019 TODAY, Winnipeg’s The Proud Sons are fired up to announce that they’ll be joining iconic Canadian band The Tea Party on their forthcoming North American "Black River Tour". With over 35 dates, this will be the bands biggest support tour ever. The band will bring their self-titled debut EP on the road with them. The album features the single Company, and this morning Atwood Magazine exclusively premiered the new video. Watch here.    

"Honestly, getting the chance to play so many shows in 60 days in places we never imagined we would play has yet to sink in;” shares lead singer Ryan McConnell. “Following in the same footsteps of a lot of the bands that inspired us to pick our instruments has been our dream for nearly a decade. As a band at this level we are always keen to keep on learning and progressing as musicians and writers, so being in the company of The Tea Party is a front row seat in Rock and Roll 101.”

The five-piece band and long-time friends, McConnell, Jason Stanley (keys), Jay Mymryk (drummer), and brothers Kyle Meyer (guitar) and Jesse Meyer (bass), released their debut EP in 2018 with Coalition Music Records. Largely inspired from a trip to Memphis, Tennessee the band teamed up with producer Brian Moncarz to record four songs that would fit just as comfortably on a playlist with The Eagles, Black Crowes, and The Rolling Stones as they could with Chris Stapleton, and Blackberry Smoke. The bulk of the EP was recorded live-off-the-floor in the Chapel at Coalition Music Studios. The EP is available everywhere.

What's The Story about The Proud Sons?
The Proud Sons are just trying to do justice to their name. The Winnipeg, Manitoba rock ‘n’ roll five-piece named themselves after a vow to do their members’ late fathers proud, and their era-spanning music is providing much proof they’re succeeding. The band’s signature four-part harmonies wouldn't be out of place in Laurel Canyon in the '60s, their '70s southern rock vibe brings the party, and the I-did-my-baby-wrong/my-baby-done-me-wrong narratives of their songs hearken back to the themes that have been the foundation for so much R&B and country & western music. It’s classic rock ‘n’ roll made contemporary. And the songs on the band’s self-titled four-song debut EP could fit just as comfortably on a playlist with Chris Stapleton, The Wild Feathers, and Blackberry Smoke as they would with The Eagles, Black Crowes, and The Rolling Stones. "Rock 'n' roll music should be fun," says Proud Sons lead singer Ryan McConnell."Expect good music and a good time."
