Animal Confession: Dark, spacey and Ambient

Animal Confession is one of those bands that immediately sinks into your soul and grabs your pulse with their energetic and enthusiastic alternative rock sounds. Their music encapsulates much of the good we've heard in rock music over the past 40 years. elements of grunge, classic rock, alt-rock and a big U2 influenced sound drive this Canadian band.

Their first full album "Bright Light, Dark eyes" will be released in October 2012. The album was mostly recorded at Metalworks Studios in Mississauga, Ontario and was produced by Chris Crerar. Crerar has also worked with Prince, Nelly Furtado, Peter, Bjorn and John and others.

Animal Confession sites Pink Floyd, Nirvana, U2, Nine Inch Nails and The Cure amongst their influences. With their finely crafted music this band is destined for greatness. Keep your eyes on these guys.

A few chosen paragraphs from their official bio:
The Ottawa, Ontario hard rock band Animal Confession plans to invade your ears and penetrate your brains in 2012 with their debut album. Comprised of Andrew Gharib (vocals, guitar) and Patrick Quesnel (bass), Animal Confession’s music combines the gritty toughness of Deftones, with the moodiness of Smashing Pumpkins and The Cure.

 When listening to Animal Confession music, you can hear traces of their musical influences; and the artists that have impacted them the most are also some of rock’s best. These include Chris Cornell (Soundgarden), The Edge (U2), Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails), Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) and David Gilmour (Pink Floyd).

 When asked to describe Animal Confession music, Gharib calls it “hard rock, somewhat experimental, heavy yet catchy.” Not surprisingly, listeners oftentimes compare the group’s sounds to The Smashing Pumpkins and My Morning Jacket – two groups that don’t fit nice and neatly in one genre description.

Best wishes to Animal Confession
