Remember that old Edmonton band Ten Second Epic? We used to play those guys on The Zone a bunch back in 2007.

The band announced they were done earlier this year but guitarist Daniel Carriere has a new project called Royal Tusk. I’ve been listening to the ep Mountain all morning. Solid stuff.

Royal Tusk will be in Victoria on September 27th to support Big Wreck
