BIO

Lifelong best friends since the age of 4, Luke Gruntz (guitar/vocals) and Ian Fraser (drums) are cleopatrick. And while they are from (and still based) in the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario, their sound is anything but small. A quick listen to their single “hometown” reveals devastating riffs and hip-hop inspired grooves. But closer inspection exposes the core of their mission: to restore the outspoken provocation of rock & roll through raw, abrasive honesty.

And the craziest part? It’s working.

The band also announced their first official vinyl release: a limited edition 7” single of “hometown” with cover art hand-stamped by the band. The vinyl single will be released on November 20th, and is available for pre-order now at the band’s newly-launched webstore.

All of cleopatrick’s success has developed from their parents’ basements in a small town you’ve never heard of. Yet while their homebase may be a small dot on the map, their community is large. Along with two other like-minded-artists (Zig Mentality and Ready The Prince), the band formed the loose DIY collective “New Rock Mafia” as a means to offer support to one another. Together the group provides location based info, curated content and organizes secret events / shows within the community, all for members only. It has been instrumental in helping the band get the word out while keeping a familial feel and a safe space for fans.   

Fuck whatever you think rock is, because cleopatrick is about to change it all. Watch this space for more news and music.
