The Reason Win Big At Hamilton Music Awards

At this year’s Hamilton Music Awards, hometown heroes The Reason picked up the award for People’s Choice Canadian Album of The Year.

Congratulations! Thanks to all those that voted for the band.

 

Classically though, the band screwed up the ceremony - i’ll leave it to their own hands to describe the goof:

 

—————

 

So we were in the audience, and the two awards we knew we were nominated for, People’s Choice local band of the year and alternative album of the year came and went, and were won by 40 Sons and Daughters and Caribou, respectively. Congrats goes out to both of those bands. So as the awards went on one by one we all ended up in the lobby bar at Hamilton Place. It was near the end of the show when Cam got a call from his buddy Matt from The Saint Alvia Cartel to say basically “get your asses in here you just won an award - Canadian Recording of the Year”. We of course, being cynical bastards, didn’t believe him at first. Cam calls him back, it turns out he was telling the truth, that we did actually win the award and that we were holding up the whole show. So we go backstage, get the award, are stoked that we won, but feel like idiots that we weren’t in the room for the ceremony. Even though we didn’t know we were nominated, we still should have been there and we have no excuse. We apologize to the Hamilton Music Awards for not being there and holding up the show. We are truly sorry.

The Reason Video Teaser for “We’re So Beyond This” Up Now.

A few weeks ago, The Reason filmed the video for “We’re So Beyond This” in Toronto with good friend Sara Quin from the band TEGAN AND SARA and director Sean Michael Turrell. The video is just about ready to show you all, but until then, we’ve made a little teaser trailer for you all to check out. The video itself will hit MuchMusic in the next few weeks, so this teaser (all footage shot by The Reason) should tide you over until then.

We have also set up a full website for the song, weresobeyondthis.ca, where you can view the trailer, check out a slideshow of photos from the video shoot, download the mp3 for free, and even make an early request for the song if you feel so inclined.
