In a perfect world, we would have been able to see W3apons in person as the opener for the Trews "I Wanna Play" tour but unfortunately we will need to wait a little longer.
The Saskatoon based trio are adept at making things work out in any circumstances thrown their way. Whether it’s standing in cold “rain” for hours to shoot the "I Am the Horizon" video or launching their first hit single completely independently, Jordan, Tallis and Myk manage to get it done. Multiple albums and tours with great Canadian bands such as Theory of a Deadman, Monster Truck and the Trews, they are seasoned performers. As the Ritual Rabbits Vator Session performances have shown, these guys can be called upon to provide backup on short notice with the promise of chicken wings and a good time with friends. The latest single off of the SMA nominated Adios Radio album "Gotta Stop" has just been released a few weeks ago.
In a unique promotion, W3apons are currently working with Armoury Brewing Company out of North Battleford to promote the Horizon single. Their Brewmasters produced the I am the Horizon Pale Ale using horizon hops. Available exclusively at Sobeys Liquor stores in Regina and Saskatoon. Make sure you scan the can to get a free song download!
A donation drive to provide warm clothing for those in need is becoming a huge success. The band has asked individuals and companies in Saskatoon to collect new and gently used clothing and the band will pick it up. Please contact them through their social media accounts to make arrangements.
