Sights + Sounds "create stark, almost - atmospheric soundscapes that are equal parts anger, aggression and artistic instrumentation" - Exclaim! Magazine.
The nomadic members of the band, brothers Joel and Andrew Neufeld (of Comeback Kid), alongside Adrian Mottram (guitar), Matt Howes (bass) have been creating music and taking it around the globe since 2006. "Sights + Sounds are truly a rare gem in a world full of deceit and manipulation. They deliver honesty wrapped in smart musicianship. The band just works, it only shows their passion as musicians that they can adapt and put together such a strong effort in a very different sound then what we are used to hearing from them" - Lucky 13.
In 2008, Sights + Sounds teamed up with acclaimed producer Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad, Lamb of God, Misery Signals, etc) and spent 2 months on Canada's west coast in Townsend's Gibson, BC recording studio. Their debut full length album entitled "Monolith" was released in 2009 around the world. Monolith is a collection of intricate songs that straddles the line between being sonically massive while also creating a beautiful experiment in textured sounds. The result is an exceptional album full of post-hardcore and punk influences, placed seamlessly over hints of far-eastern melodies - creating songs that are as aggressive as they are imaginative.
This release took the band on tour extensively through North America, Europe, SE Asia, and Australia with bands such as Billy Talent, Bring Me The Horizon, Moneen, Lower Than Atlantis, Misery Signals, and more.
With the addition of David Grabowski joining S+S on keys in 2013, they released their follow up EP entitled "Silver Door" on Distort Entertainment / Pure Noise Records continuing their tradition. Look out for new music in 2016…
