The Fast Romantics are a band from Calgary, Canada. They played their first show with the current line-up in September 2007 and have since played alongside acts such as Stone Temple Pilots, the Flaming Lips, the Fratellis, the Stills and more. After playing Virgin Fest and a number of other high-profile shows, the band caught the ear of legendary Mix Engineer Mike Fraser (Franz Ferdinand, Sam Roberts, AC/DC), who recently finished mixing their upcoming self-titled debut album. The album was mastered by Grammy award winner Adam Ayan (Nirvana, Rolling Stones, Foo Fighters). After two top ten singles on commercial radio in Calgary, features on National radio (CBC) and continual praise in print.  The band has just completed a national tour including a headlining slot at the Canadian Music Week Festival in Toronto and is about to take their show on a follow up tour of Canada and the US in support of their upcoming debut release.
