Biography

Calgary, Alberta, Canada (1995 – 2005, 2011 – 2012)

Belvedere was a canadian / band formed in 1995. Originally not meant to play a show, they gained a cult following in Canada’s scene. Known for their blazing speed and vocals, the band also appeared on the Warped Tour and Groezrock Festival bills.
Taking their name from the ’80s sitcom, Belvedere began in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1995 as the three-piece of Steve Rawles (guitar/vocals), Brock (bass), and Dan Hrynuik (drums).

As the years progressed along with their revolving lineup, Belvedere remained with their sound that looked up to the likes of Bad Religion and NOFX. Eventually recruiting second guitarist Scott Solo, replacement drummer Jay Hollywood, and a replacement bassist Jaison Synclair, the quartet released their debut album, “Because No One Stopped Us”, in 1998 through Hourglass and 206 Records. After spending most of 1999 on the road, along with Bad Religion and Strung Out, for a stint — 206 Records put out Belvedere’s follow-up album, “Angels Live in My Town”, in early 2000. In 2001, the Montreal imprint Union 2112 released “Twas Hell Said Former Child”, Belvedere’s proper second album that coincided their first ever European tour. A split release with Downway, “Hometown Advantage”, was issued in 2003. When it came time to recovene for another studio album, Belvedere joined producer Blair Calibaba (Sum 41) in Calgary for the recording of “Fast Forward Eats the Tape”.
