Diner Drugs from Moncton, Canada has a new music video out for their song “Need Time” off the 2019 album „As Is”. The quartet takes inspiration from stoner rock and punk rock and comes with as much harmony as they do beer. Elegantly self-coined as “mustard moustache muscle car cliché” they have groove and grease for days. 

Their first full-length album “As Is” was a more grown-up release than their self-titled debut, and they took a more serious angle, focusing on writing great songs, and put more thought into arranging the parts. Diner Drugs explains their music in their own words: 

“We’re a loud and punchy stoner metal band but we also have smooth vocal harmonies that usually catch people off guard. We love playing and even though our overall attitude is we’re pretty chill, we take a lot of time to craft our songs and it’s a group effort when we write so it’s not someone up there playing someone else’s songs.”


Diner Drugs knows how to grab the attention of their listeners and “Need Time” will do just that. A fuzzy wall of sound forms the base layer with energized punk drumming, harsh hardcore vocals, and raucous guitars with the icing on this loud cake of harmonized clean vocals, making it suitable for almost anybody’s taste.

Those looking for another slice of what Diner Drugs is serving up won’t have long to wait, the band suggests there will be another album released in 2021.

Punchy and crunchy, Diner Drugs’ particular flavour of stoner metal is recommended for those with a taste for Red Fang, Cancer Bats, and Alexisonfire.

“Jack Of All Trades” uses clever drum timing between guitar riffs which assaults the senses in different ways and rattles your eardrums like an off-balanced washing machine. The skate punk style writing of this track will have you wondering if NOFX and Suicidal Tendencies had a baby.” – Sarah Hellingwerf, The East 

“Diner Drugs is one of those “f&*k all” bands that play heavy, fast and dirty rock.” – Jamie Robash, Divide and Conquer Music 

Canada’s Cavedweller Come At You With The Blistering Brutality Of “Slow Death”

“Slow Death” is anything but slow; it’s a manic whirlwind of deathcore, complete with a fresh breath of breakdowns, enticing both old and new fans who will feel like they are discovering a new sound. If you took a racing scene from a Nicholas Cage movie and combined it with that scene from The Shining where Jack Nicholson is breaking down that door with an axe, that would be this new track from Fredericton’s Cavedweller.

The band’s EP “Primal” came out in 2020 and this new stand-alone single is devised to whet fans palate before an expected 2021 full-length release.

Cavedweller comments on the song: 

““Slow Death” is a song our drummer originally pitched to us. Most of the structure was there, so we just played around with it a little bit, worked out some kinks, played around with time signatures for a little bit, and eventually ended up with the finished product. Lyrically, the song is about being trapped in a cycle of life, living the same day by day routine and schedule until death.”

Looking to leave an impression with this single, Cavedweller chose this fast, heavy hitter to be their first video. It’s abrasive, in your face and the chaos doesn’t relent for a second. 

For this track, drummer Sam Brown came up with the core groove initially, and each of the members threw their own spices into it. Pulling inspiration from the heavy side of the spectrum, proggy rhythmically driven influences, and the core subgenre, the result is quick and dirty, high energy good times, and a raw approach to metal.

Groovy and sporadic with a healthy dose of breakdowns, Cavedweller is recommended for fans of Every Time I Die, Norma Jean, and The Chariot.

Cavedweller is four homies from the small town of Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada that play groovy riffs, and crushing breakdowns.

Cavedweller is Cujo Bonvie (vocals), Alex Sturgeon (bass), Sam Brown (drums), and Brad Kenny (guitar), four guys who have known each other from the local scene for years. Brown and Sturgeon used to play together in local act Blueprints, and Bonvie was a regular attendee to local shows, and played in a number of local bands, including Dumpster Mummy, Panda Bee Catastrophe, and The Mind Unleashed. Once the four of them started jamming, the chemistry was evident and the rest is history.

In 2019, the band recorded their demo “Free-Sushi” which was followed up in 2020 with the EP “Primal”. The EP was mixed and mastered themselves; guitars were recorded in Sturges room, drums at a friend’s place, and mastered at Kenny’s place. During the recording process at Sturges, a lightsaber battle broke out between Sturge and Kenny to determine whose masters would be the ones released. It was a long and intense battle, but Kenny was ultimately the victor.

There is a wide range of influences coursing through the blood of the band including hardcore, punk, deathcore, and a little bit of prog-metal, and the final result is best suited for fans of Chelsea Grin, Whitechapel, and Traitors.

Cavedweller has played with several bands in their short history and expects to have a full length out by the end of 2021.

Don’t be shy, come show us what you’ve got in the pit!
