Welcome to the Show
Born in a Toronto basement in late 2003, Evil Doers burst on to the Toronto scene in early 2004, quickly rocking their way into the hearts of music fans across the country, assaulting audiences with infectious hooks, scorching guitar, and throbbing rhythms. Guitar wiz and vocalist Paul Leroux (Pink Sunday, The Master Plan, Fast Freddie), along with double-bassist Steve Barber (Alvy, Bodega, Syntonics) and drummer Jason Darby (Noah's Arkweld, Catch Veronica, The Grace Babies), create a dynamic and explosive sound that thrusts you back to the dirtier side of rock n' roll. Evil Doers celebrated the release of their debut EP, Who's Evil? (Recorded and mixed by Pete Hudson (Trigger Happy, Nice Cat, Elevator)) in front of a packed house at Sneaky Dee's in July 2004. Who's Evil? received extensive college radio play nationwide, charting on CFRU - Guelph, CFCR - Saskatoon, and CFBX - Kamloops. After embarking on their maiden US voyage in January 2005, Evil Doers were back on Canadian soil hard at work on the full-length follow-up to Who's Evil? with producer and indie rock legend, Ian Blurton (The Illuminati, The Weakerthans, Tricky Woo). The album, Welcome to the Show, was recorded and mixed to analog tape in 5 days at Chemical Sound in Toronto. Since the albums release in August of 2005, the first single, Movie Star, has received extensive airplay on CFNY 102.1 in Toronto, FM96 in London and at college stations across the country. Welcome to Show has charted at several college radio stations, including a top ten single with 'Meter Maid' at CKLU Sudbury, and a top 3 album placement at C101 Hamilton.
