Since the bands inception in Vancouver two years ago, Art of Dying has quietly become Canada’s number one rock band to watch. Their lead single “Get Thru This” has attracted over 60,000 fans to their MySpace page, has reached the Top 10 Unsigned Bands list on MySpace, and has battled it out in the Top 10 charts on many US radio stations. In addition to being the theme song during the opening credits for the “Stuntdawgs” TV show, it is also the theme song for this season’s Global TV’s hockey reality show, “Making The Cut”, and can be heard on ABC’s Falcon Beach series.

Vancouver’s vibrant underground rock scene brought together five talented musicians with the knack for producing hard rocking anthems with undeniably catchy melodies.

Jonny Hetherington – Vocals
Greg Bradley – Guitars
Chris Witoski – Guitars
Matt Rhode – Bass
Flavio Cirillo - Drums

Art of Dying’s self-titled debut album was released in the UK on Oct. 9th on their own label, Thorny Bleeder Records, via a licensing deal with Revolver/Universal, and is available now at HMV, Virgin, Amazon.com, CD Baby, and iTunes.

Art of Dying recently returned to their home in Vancouver, BC following a successful UK tour with hard rock act Seether. Playing to sold-out venues and performing for over six thousand people in only two weeks, Art of Dying has already made quite a splash in the British music scene.

Hailed by Kerrang Magazine, as “heavy crowd pleasers” at the 2006 Download Festival in June, reviews from their recent tour are starting to hit the press.

“AOD does…everything right to not be lost in the jungle of average music.” (Melodic.net)
