Montreal, QC-based band Era 9, who specialise in their own concoction of rock, metal, hip-hop and EDM which they call “TrapRock”, is premiering the music video for new track “Hero”. The band are releasing their latest genre-defiant full-length LP Gravity on May 5th.
Guitarist Jona Dhe Paganon explains the band’s sound: “When we formed it was like an undeniable force; a magnetic field that surrounded our individual selves; that when we got close enough to each other, there was no ignoring the fact that our mutual passion for music, performing and writing would become a true reality if we stuck together. We’re open-minded and appreciative of all genres of music. The idea of ‘TrapRock’ was created by this admiration of different musical styles.”
Vocalist Anthony Lalla adds: “We love how our music can bring everyone together and we’re excited to share it with the world. We’ve been releasing music since 2011 and toured across the US, supporting really great bands, and now we truly feel that over the years, we have come into our own with this next opus for fans. We believe that we’re in a new era of music that isn’t limited to one style of listener. We cater to all who open themselves to it! We value creative freedom in music and we promote open-mindedness and imagination.”
The band have garnered U.S. tours with many notable acts including Trapt, Pop Evil, Drowning Pool, Gemini Syndrome and Saving Abel, and have also provided opening support for Hed PE, POD, From Ashes To New, Saliva, Filter, Gilby Clarke, Sebastian Bach, Hoobastank, Art Of Dying and The Veer Union.
