What: Alternative Rock
Where: Vaughan, ON
The past five years have been a blur of sorts for alternative rock trio Stuck on Planet Earth. The Vaughan, ON-based band was hand-picked by the CFL to represent the Toronto Argonauts in the Rock the Grey Cup contest in 2013 and topped CBC’s R-30 countdown for eight weeks straight not long after.
More recently, the group has landed high-profile support slots for bands like Danko Jones while watching their latest single, “Permanent,” climb the charts. Eschewing bells and whistles in favour of a basic yet timeless rock sound, Stuck on Planet Earth just cemented a deal with Anthem Records – the label’s first signing since 2011 – with a new album expected in the fall.
