With a show scheduled at the Commodore on March 27th and an appearance at the Davie Street Party during Pride 2010, Scatterheart claims they have started a revolution to help make Rock ‘n Roll fun again.
Armed to the teeth with love, feathers, and great songwriting, Scatterheart lead singer Jesse Enright says “There’s no reason you can’t leave a rock show feeling happy! I spent my teen years in the rave scene dancing to great DJs and I was amazed by the amount of energy a room full of people can create… love is powerful. With Scatterheart I wanted to create the same experience and energy, but with a live rock show!”
And that energy is building. Already known in Western Canada for their colorful ‘Love Rock’ shows that leave audiences sweaty and satisfied, the band is excited to take their new album The Masterplan on the road and recruit more fans.
“The energy when I’m playing with Scatterheart is the craziest thing I’ve ever felt.”, says guitarist Doug Fury. Fury, who toured for 10 years with Canadian rock goddess Bif Naked, is no stranger to huge venues and big crowds but insists that this is something different. “I feel like we have created a high energy, huge rock show, but with a positive vibe! We try to give our audience the excitement that existed in 70’s and 80’s arena rock. Where has the personality gone in Rock n Roll? We want to bring it back!”
On the bands latest album The Masterplan, Scatterheart hints at their influences including Queen, the Police Davie Bowie, but manages to assemble all of them into something new. A sound described by music journalist Ferdy Belland as a, “crazy-like-a-fox melding of Queen-esque glam-rock inside stunning 3 minute pop songs”.
Not afraid to take chances, the band loves the unexpected and their audience practically demands it now. It’s all about handstands during guitar solos, bubbles instead of pyro, and feathers instead of jeans and t-shirts. It’s powerful Love Rock delivered in a classy way.
