ON’s “Break You” Is A Decree Of Emancipation

Indie Rock power Trio ON recently released their eponymous ON album via Toronto-based imprint Indiestructable Records as well as their new single and video for “Break You”. The members carry on in the legacy of their 90’s Sire Records band Acid Test and some members have also been in other Toronto bands like Danko Jones and Deliuss. They’ll be taking to the road in support of the new album.

This tour brings ON through the West Coast, Rockies and South-West, kicking off in San Diego on February 14th, 2023 and ending in Seattle on April 2nd.

Lucy Di Santo shares about the new single:

‘Break You’ soars like a goodbye love letter to a toxic person, place or substance; it’s a decree of emancipation – and breaking away from what dictates and captures the human soul. It is an outcry, a battle cry, and finally a freedom cry of intention – all wrapped up in a hardcore punk-metal riff that end with Sabbath-esque overtones.

Written in Toronto and New York, ON guitarist Steve Fall says the album is “a document of friendship navigating explores in pain, and hope. Looking at the world with a collaborative effort to document what we see, witness and feel through songwriting and chemistry as a band.”

Following pre-production recording with Drew Howard at Star Sound Studios in Cape Coral, the band worked with sound engineer Darius Szczepaniak (Sum 41, Black Crowes, Big Sugar, Bare Naked Ladies, Jann Arden) out of Phase One Studios.
