Welcome to our Blog

Welcome to the results of our latest fever dream! A blog!

We have tonnes of records that we are super excited to have because we thought some of you would be also super excited to listen to and buy!

Now Hear Three Days Grace
Nickelback. Staind. Hoobastank. Avenged Sevenfold. It almost seems like Three Days Grace toured with as many bands as there were people living in their hometown of Norwood, Ontario! OK, so what if their "little town in the middle of nowhere"...
