Today we have the pleasure of premiering the song “Flashback” from the independent Lloydminster, Saskatchewan-based progressive rock trio, Artificial Lift. Not only is this a premiere, but also an exclusive free song download, so, get playing, grabbing, and sharing, NOW!

Composed of Trent Bloch-Hansen (guitar, vox), Trent Paterson (bass), and Deric Sheppard (drums, vox), Artificial Lift came together in 2013 under the name Biggs Hosan before changing names, and beginning to write and release original music. Their debut 5-track EP, Ominous, cam out in 2014 and helped the group to quickly establish a local following. Artificial Lift are now preparing to release their full-length debut, Wasted Days, on July 16th – get a taste of it today!
