The Reason and Sights & Sounds will each be appearing at Canadian Music Week 2009 in Toronto.

The annual schmooze/booze/make-you-dance-and-move fest known as Canadian Music Week will once again be causing more havoc in Toronto than a call-in-the-army level blizzard this week. To celebrate, The Reason and Sights & Sounds will be performing at two separate shows during the festivities.

The Reason plays Sneaky Dee’s on Friday, March 13th with Priestess, Hollerado and The Junction. The show starts at 9pm, and The Reason hits the stage at 10:00pm sharp.

Sights & Sounds invade Sneaky Dee’s the following night (March 14th) with The Holly Springs Disaster and A Textbook Tragedy. Apparently there is also an after-party. Leave your liver at the door.

Have fun and play safe!

Blogs, videos, pictures and more from The Reason while they record their new album.

The Reason have been “attack"ing (get it?! See the picture?!) a studio in Asheville, North Carolina with new music. And they want you to be able to keep up with the battle! Check out for videos, pictures, blogs and updates from “The Canadians” as they are known in Asheville. They look like they’re having a pretty good time south of the border… hopefully we can convince them to come back to Canada once they are finished recording!

There are also some recent live photos of The Reason in Hamilton taken by everyone’s good friend Brooks Reynolds. So check those out as well!

The Reason Go Into The Studio

A little update from Adam and the band.

Well that time is finally upon us. This evening we are embarking on a twelve and a half hour journey to beautiful Asheville, North Carolina to begin recording the new album. We have narrowed it down to 12 songs, and believe it or not, I actually think we’re ready. I don’t think we’ve ever been this ready. Its a good feeling. By this time tomorrow we’ll be loading all our gear into Echo Mountain Studios, a 1920’s church that has been converted into one of raddest studios around. We’ll also be meeting up with Steve Haigler, the man who is producing the record, and the man we will be living with collectively for the next month. Its going to be like nothing we’ve ever experienced. We’re gonna share it all with you guys via daily journal, photo and video blogs. Head over to and check it out daily to keep updated. We have a month to get this thing done. Wish us luck! talk soon… adam

The Reason Reach New CMJ High

I could make some stupid outdated quip about drugs or whatever here, but i won’t. I’ve realised that no one gives a shit about the quixotic rumblings of an aging punk ass. So just the facts you yell…oh yes, just the facts. This week, the second that The Reason is on the CMJ charts, the young lads from Hamilton reached #106 on the glorious CMJ Charts. Thats up from their debut on the Charts last week at #127.
