Family Meeting to release new EP via Thousand Islands Records

Toronto melodic punk rockers Family Meeting have announced that they have joined the ranks of Montreal-based label, Thousand Islands Records, with plans of releasing a new EP this year.

With the recent departure of frontman Josh Riley, the new EP will also serve as a transition for the band as bassist Davey Knight will take on lead vocal duties. The good news is that Josh will still be involved in the recording process from his home in Australia…More details will soon be available!

Family Meeting last released their debut EP “No One Cares ‘til You’re Dead” in April of last year.

About Family Meeting:

Family Meeting is a five piece melodic punk band from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

It all started when local music scene veterans and close buds Steve Ferreira, Nick Navrotski, Brian Brodie, and Davey Knight started jamming out of a basement, focusing on their passion for writing and playing tight, technical, punk rock. After two years of refining their sound instrumentally, the band was completed upon connecting with Josh Riley, who only months prior, relocated to Toronto from Sydney, Australia. The five members instantly bonded over their mutual love for A Wilhelm Scream, junk food, and good times.

Now, a year later, Family Meeting have found their niche sound, with constant dual guitar work, punishing bass tone, pumping drums and clean, melodious vocals. All of these attributes are backed up by Family Meeting’s obsession with gang sing-a-longs.

No One Cares ‘Til You’re Dead, Family Meeting’s debut EP, was recorded, mixed and co-produced by Sam Guaiana (We Were Sharks, Like Pacific, Rarity), who helped polish the overall sound the band aims for – a big, live, loud sound that maintains its authenticity.
