Debut album coming October 6th.

From FB:

Armed with a sound that's primal and in your face, Dextress will make you move no matter what they're playing.

A four person band originating in Calgary, Alberta, Dextress uses heavy hitting power chords, slick solos, and attention grabbing vocals to get their point across. Their point: That sometimes letting loose means getting a little rowdy and messy. The hangover the next day will be worth it.

Dextress began in the hot summer of 2011 suburbia with lead singer Jackson Taylor and lead guitarist Mark Janz. The band's sound has grown and changed along with the members, and the two founding musicians collaborate with the rest of the band to write all of their own material. Drawing inspiration for their sound primarily from the 80's, specifically Van Halen, Guns N' Roses, and Mötley Crüe, to name a few, Dextress is able to hit the sweet spot for modern appeal mixed with old school rock 'n' roll.

If their enthusiasm isn't already prevalent in their recorded songs, their live shows will leave you with no doubt that Dextress is passionate about what they do and that they know how to put on a show. The atmosphere shifts when the band gets on stage and doesn't let up until the lights go on again. They're dramatic without being overwhelming - a classic act but missing typical by a mile.

As AC/DC puts it, it's a long way to the top if you wanna rock 'n' roll. And with the introduction of Eric Paulin on bass, the band has nothing to do and nowhere to go but upwards.

Mark Janz- Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals

Keith Runco - Drums, Backing Vocals

This is a pretty good album.  At the moment it seems like the only way to get a physical copy on cd is to get it from the band.  I didn't see it for sale on the band's site, but they mention, on their FB page, that it is available on cd.

They're having a merch blowout sale (including the physical copy) on their homepage.

I just ordered the CD.

I went to check out their merch blowout sale.  Their cd is selling for $10 and when I went to checkout, they wanted $11 for shipping.  I'll pass.  Not sure that the cd is actually on sale anyway as all the other stuff has the prices crossed out and the sales prices next to them.  The cd just list the one (I'm assuming original) price.

This is being re-released through Eonian Records with a bonus track.

From Eonian Records:

DEXTRESS - After Dark Edition

Envision the delirious fun of Van Halen, influence of Mötley Crüe, anthemic precision of Def Leppard, all smeared with the back alley grime of Skid Row and Guns n’ Roses, and you have hit the sweet spot with Calgary, Alberta’sDEXTRESS!

Originally released in October 2017, few debut Indie releases (or groups) have been so enthusiastically received, landing the #8 spot on the Sleaze Roxx’s Top Ten Albums of 2017 to name just one of the highlights. Produced and mixed by renowned producer Glen Robinson at LeStudio, in Montreal, Quebec, this superb sounding debut album consists of one solid punch after another. It is a MUST have for any music fan that wants to turn back the clock to the Decade of Decadence. Eonian Records is thrilled to bring you the re-issue of their debut with all new artwork, band bio written by Steven Reid of Fireworks Magazine, never seen photos of the band, and bonus track “Young n’ Crazy”.

    • "Cry Baby Cry" by Aldo Nova  
    • Ah sweet, I've been meaning to look into audio file editors myself since the tracks aren't split correctly on some of the music I purchased digitally. Which editors do you use?
    • I think my favorite song by them is either Love Kills or Ecstasy
    • I know, right? I loved the song until I got to the part with the noise. I guess the noise was supposed to replicate an effect on the record where the noise wouldn't stop until you picked the needle up. While kind of neat on the record, I think the other versions of the album would've been better off without it.
    • Some guy created a video on YouTube saying Chez Kane should be the new singer, but she has shot that down as well.
    • New album 'Kings Of The Revolution' out June 14th.
    • I really should use one of my editing software to have an MP3 without it. I separated the two versions of Gone again by PC69 years ago, but for some reason never edited this. Should be able to cut most of that 3 mins and fade the song out.
    • From Lions Pride Music: Nightfox emerged from the musical landscape of Trondheim, Norway, as a dynamic fusion of synthwave origins morphing seamlessly into the hard-hitting realms of 1980s-inspired hard rock. Founded in 2012, the band initially embarked on a journey rooted in synthwave aesthetics before embracing the electrifying energy of hard rock around 2017.   Driven by a relentless passion for the roaring riffs and blazing guitar solos reminiscent of the golden era of rock, Nightfox found its true voice within the spirited soundscape of 80s rock. What began as a synthwave experiment organically evolved into a full-fledged hard rock powerhouse, propelled by the inherent inclination of their compositions towards rock's anthemic essence.   The band's evolution culminated in the creation of a diverse repertoire of instrumentals, laying the foundation for their debut EP slated for release in 2018. However, personal circumstances necessitated a postponement, prompting a pivotal realization within the band that vocals would elevate their sonic tapestry to new heights.   Between 2019 and 2020, Nightfox embarked on an intensive songwriting and recording spree, breathing life into their compositions through the addition of poignant lyrics and powerful vocals delivered by a seasoned hired singer. As the album "White Cobra" began to take shape, the band opted to release their songs sequentially, with the debut single "Ride the Sky Tonight" igniting a spark that caught the attention of Lions Pride Music record label.   With Lions Pride Music extending a record deal, Nightfox found themselves propelled into the limelight, abandoning their original release strategy in favor of a cohesive album experience. In June 2021, the world bore witness to the electrifying debut of "White Cobra," a sonic odyssey that garnered critical acclaim, widespread airplay, and sold-out pressings within months of its release. Buoyed by the success of their debut, Nightfox set their sights on the creation of their sophomore album, "Chrome Tiger," a testament to their unwavering commitment to the legacy they've forged. Scheduled for a worldwide release on August 30, 2024, "Chrome Tiger" promises to further solidify Nightfox's position as torchbearers of the hard rock resurgence, captivating audiences with their infectious energy and unbridled passion for the genre.   Nighfox is: Vocals: Felipe Del Valle Briceño All Instruments & Programming: Erik Winther
