"First or last, somewhere you've ashed the cigarette that's gonna take you down."
cleopatrick are a heavy alt-rock duo from the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario - yup, the 'c' is lowercase.
Piling all of the torment and rhetoric that comes with chasing big ideas within the limits of a small town, lifelong best friends Luke Gruntz (guitar/vox) and Ian Fraser (drums) are on a mission to reverse the stigma against modern rock bands via a bastardized bass amp and split signal, topped with provocative blues grooves and take-down breakdowns.
Since releasing "hometown", the first single off their sophomore EP the boys, cleopatrick have independently amassed over 15 million Spotify streams, have been featured on the front cover of Spotify's massive "Rock This", played their very first festival stage at Chicago's iconic Lollapalooza, and recorded a live session at BBC's legendary Maida Vale Studio 4. Now in the global spotlight, the band is hitting the road with one and only one message: fuck whatever you think rock is.
The album's fifth and final single, "youth", was released worldwide June 29 and is currently in rotation on multiple rock and alternative radio stations including SiriusXM's Alt Nation and Octane. Tickets for the band's 38 date fall/winter headline tour across Canada, UK, and USA are now available (but selling fast!) at www.cleopatrick.com.
