Description

40 Sons : Seven thousand Canadian bands entered. After 6 rounds of competitions across Canada, Bodog Music narrowed down the Canadian Finals to 12 bands. Only one band could come out victorious at Jeff Healey’s in Toronto in front of a panel of music industry judges, and that band was 40 Sons. “This Ontario band has it all – talent, passion, polish and charisma. We can’t wait to see what this band full of fresh young music talent has in store as Canada’s Bodog Battle Champion.”(Bodog Entertainment)

Hard rock band 40 Sons arose from the steel city of Hamilton Ontario. Mike Repic, Graeme Hawkins, Mike Szpakowski, and Cristiano Andreatta came together in the spring of 2004 and began creating there own style of alternative rock by combining melodic vocals, pulsing rhythms and heavy guitar riffs. In March 2007, FSD released there second EP, “The Monsters’ Face” to much critical acclaim. Based on the strength of the album and their intense live performances they were named Local Group of the Year at the 2007 Hamilton Music Awards, adding another honor to there short career which includes the Roger Spring Music Festival Breakout Band of the Year in 2006, an opening spot at the 2006 Ozzfest tour, runner-up at the internationally known Toronto Indie Week, and two other Hamilton Music Award Nominations including new artist of the year and metal album of the year. They have toured all across southern Ontario and Eastern Canada and continue to develop their exciting live show and incredible music. 


Now as the Canadian Bodog Battle Champion, they have utilized the talents of acclaimed producer Carl Jennings of Westmoreland Studios and famed mixing engineer John Nazário of Iguana Studios, to create a new EP which is the band’s best work to date. With this new recording come new opportunities and new goals; watch out because they are on their way...
