What does a DIY Canadian rock duo do after charting on the National Loud Chart, releasing a viral video-game anthem and touring the globe in the wake of critical reviews and mainstream press?
Whatever they want.
The newest newest offering of hard-rock mad-science from Double Experience is “Rock (Geology)”; a continuation of the band’s 5 year series of music released on collectible trading cards. The first, FACTOR-funded single, “The Pilot”, is due November 16, 2017.
In fact, the only thing ‘conventional’ about Double Experience is their undying affinity for comic convention culture. The band have performed for audiences at Ottawa and Montreal ComicCon as well as many other gatherings such as MAGFest and GuardianCon. Their Destiny-inspired single “The Glimmer Shot” even earned in-game accolades from Bungie, the developer of the multi-million user franchise. Double Experience’s quirky lyrical content has connected with hundreds of thousands of Spotify listeners and their undeniable live show has been perfected over hundreds of performances at clubs and festivals across 16 countries.
Double Experience’s DIY-story and business acumen has been shared at music industry conventions (IndieWeek) and hundreds of high schools and colleges across the world. Since the band’s inception in 2014, Band members Ian Nichols (vocals, bass) and Brock Tinsley (guitar) have established themselves as the nucleus of a dynamic alchemy of players, collaborating with musicians such as Fred Mascherino (Taking Back Sunday, Terrible Things) and Steve Bache (He is Legend) in studio and onstage.
