TERRITORIES – “Quit This City / Defender” | Review

After an absolute explosion onto the scene with their debut self titled record last summer (2018), TERRITORIES have been making a name for themselves very quickly. Becoming a staple support band for virtually every big punk show in Calgary, this group of experienced veteran musicians is building momentum as fast as they are writing songs.

Picture yourself driving down a lonely desert road, Canadian Indie Rockers… Territories new 2 song single is the perfect soundtrack to your solitary drive. The emotional and melodic lyrics to ‘Quit this city’ and ‘Defender’ strike a chord with anyone who has struggled in life. The band’s arrangement of both tracks really showcases their musical training. If you enjoy The Replacements or 90s alternative rock. you’ll really dig this single.

Released in tandem with their first jaunt across the border to play shows in the USA (including PIRATES PRESS‘ 15th Anniversary “Rock the Ship“ Weekend), this incredible double-single highlights two brand new ones sure to excite everyone who got on board with their debut, and more.

These songs show the range that these guys have, and the sheer musical talent and creativity that is fueling this engine. Along with a picture flexi release for the song “The Lockdown“ coming soon, these three new songs are just the prelude of more to come. Expect another extended EP, a couple of splits, some great tours and more out of these barn storming Canadians over the next couple of months. We’re all unbelievably excited, and you should be too! Check out these tracks now to wet your whistle…

“The Lockdown” is another single from Canadian punk band TERRITORIES aimed at creating more public dialogue about “lockdowns” (active shooter drills) at schools. To request FREE picture flexis and stickers for this single to pass out within your school community to bring awareness to this campaign, please visit www.piratespressrecords.com/TTV/
