Go on, be a “Daredevil” and try something new! We invite you to check out the music of Edmonton, Alberta-based rock group Alleviate via a free download of their catchy single “Daredevil”. The single, which is unavoidably fun and laced with a chill, mildly country vibe, is lifted from the band’s new five-song EP, Glass Habits, which dropped on November 16, 2018, and may be heard on Spotify and other similar services.

By blending acoustic and electric guitars, with a driving rhythm section and poignant lyrics are the key to Alleviate’s sound; something members Aaron Passek (drums), Chris Weihmann (bass), Matt Mackenzie (guitar), and Chad Plamondon (vocals) take to heart. Commenting on the single, the band shot over a quick note, saying “‘Daredevil’ evolved a lot both musically and lyrically from its initial conception, a song about a relationship going sour became a tune of understanding and learning to cope with mental illness and the high and the lows of getting there.”
