MILLION DOLLAR FIX, raucous Canadian party-riffers who recently won the Calgary Beer Core award for Best Rock Band are self-releasing their sophomore album, the appropriately (and awesomely) titled Psychedelephant, March 11. It will be available in DD/CD formats and promises to even heavier, riffier and partier than their 2012 debut, Billygoat.
It isn’t often that that a band was born the exact same way it was meant to exist, but that’s precisely what happened the day MILLION DOLLAR FIX got together: In 2010, they started jamming at a party, riffs pouring out at the same speed of the delicious PBR pouring down their throats, and the end result was the ultimate riff-slinging rock and roll party band.
MILLION DOLLAR FIX begin playing live shows as a three-piece and continued to do so for years before recording a hell of a self-released debut album, Billygoat, in 2012. Their well-earned achievements grabbed the attention of western Canada and landed them live slots alongside Indian Handcrafts, Chron Goblin, Sandrider, Daywalker, Witchstone, High Kicks and more.
In an era where stoner rock and doom metal are king, the band leans more toward the likes of Thin Lizzy than Black Sabbath and aligns themselves with more straight-up, no-fuss classic rock ‘n’ roll than any musical trend of the moment. No matter what, they aim to infiltrate any good times with their infectious, upbeat riffs. Armed with a new lead guitarist, Brad Weidlich, Logan Derby (guitar/vocals), Keegan Costella (bass/vocals) and Jeff Shibby Smith (drums) will go into the studio this winter and emerge on March 11 with a sophomore album, Psychedelephant, to blast away any cold-weather misery with riffs that drip with beer and a party-it-away attitude. That’s what rock ‘n’ roll was made for and that’s what MILLION DOLLAR FIX is here to do.
