Convoys is a sweat-inducing frenzy of buzzy guitar riffs and a tight rhythm section. They explores grunge, rock, math, and noise creating a catchy and raw experience. After spending 3 years in bars all over South Korea, frontman Jason Jang ventured back to Toronto with new motivations to rock harder than ever.
In 2011, he would meet Sebastian Lesch and Greg Muhlbock to later form Convoys. A trio of multi-talents, DIY has become a religion for the boys in Convoys. Between self producing the music, web development, graphic/post design, silk screen, and video production, they have worked hard to build a strong identifiable brand and aesthetic for all things Convoys.
The self-produced EP “Return to…” is a raw and emotional ride of personal conflict. It features crowd pleasers Far from Home and Misinterpreted. In the fall of 2012, they created their own line of cereal complete with original artwork, puzzles, prizes, and download card. “Convoys Crunch’ would be sold at the merch table to confused concertgoers.
They would go on to produce a music video for, ‘Far From Home’, and continue to produce a YouTube show “Cooking with Convoys” which features barely-edible creations in their jam space for their drummer’s undying appetite. The word “cooking” is used very loosely here.
Kicking off 2014, Convoys is proud to announce the upcoming release of their first feature length album, “See and Breathe”. No strangers to collaboration, they have recruited local artists to create 9 unique designs for album art. In lieu of CDs or vinyl, “See and Breathe” will have 9 different art-postcards that will be displayed at their merch-table at their shows.
After a successful 3 years of playing in Toronto and greater area, they have garnered a growing following, and continue to impress audiences with their high-energy and tight live show.
