Apparently this CM Punk thing wasn’t a fluke; bigger and bigger media companies are taking notice of this little thing we call straight edge. In one of the most recent examples, noted Canadian music magazine Aux has published a new article entitled 7 New Canadian Straight Edge Hardcore Bands You Need To Know. And by You, they mean their 1.3 million-person readership.
So what bands were fortunate enough to make the list, be profiled, and have their music included in the feature?
The Chain, from Calgary, AB
Weak Link, from St. John’s, Newfoundland
Out of Sight, from Vancouver, BC
Measure Up, from Halifax, NS
Ignorance, from Winnipeg, MB
Raw Style, from Ottawa, ON
Prosecution, from Edmonton, AB
Check out the winning debut from Calgary’s The Chain. To listen to the rest of the bands, hit up the original Aux article.
