Biography

The Salads are a punk rock band with strong reggae/ska tendencies, originally from Newmarket, Ontario, Canada. They are currently independent on their own label, Maui Wowie Records.

The group was formed in late 1996, and has had a relatively steady line-up ever since. They played many shows in the Toronto, Ontario region, eventually deciding to start recording.

In 1998, The Salads entered the studio for the first time, and recorded their debut full-length album, titled “Meanwhile…The Salads”. The album went relatively unnoticed, as the band was just beginning to make a real name for themselves. However, the group went on, and continued to write new music, culminating with the release of an EP, “Who’s That?”, in 2001, and a second full-length album, “Fold A to B”, in 2003.

This album had a much bigger impact than the self-titled debut. Catchy songs such as “Get Loose” and “The Roth Kung Fu” allowed the band to break through and get some airplay throughout Canada. Indeed, the first single, “Get Loose”, was featured in a Labatt Blue commercial, which allowed the band to gain an even bigger fanbase. At this point, back-up vocalist Libydo left the band, for personal reasons. The band embarqued on a massive worldwide tour, which ended with a few dates in Australia, in October 2005.
