A wise man once said it’s long way to the top if you want to rock ‘n’ roll. If you’re The Lazys, it’s more like a long way across two continents and the world’s largest ocean. But since the Australian rockers have landed on Canadian shores, it’s been a balls-out ascent to become one of the most talked about live acts in the country. And they’ve now bottled that lighting on their new album, Tropical Hazards.
On past tours with bands like The Trews and Danko Jones, The Lazys quickly gained a reputation for their rowdy, high-energy performance. With the release of Tropical Hazards they prepare to hit the road and do what they do best: bring the party. “I want people to leave feeling entertained,” says Matty. “I want them to leave thinking that was the best rock show they’ve ever seen. To leave sweaty, dirty, horny!”
Having recently relocated to Toronto full-time, the band can certainly be considered honorary Canadians. And the journey that began 10 years ago in Australia is still just getting started. Says Matty, “Since the early days, being in a rock band is all we’ve ever wanted to do. We’ve shown how much love we can offer to people if they give us a chance and Canada has done that for us. It’s kind of insane when we think about all that support. But now it’s time to show the world.”

The Standstills highly anticipated full length album “Badlands” is about defining their craft and broadening their horizon. “It’s a mixed bag of sexy psychedelic, guitar driven, outlaw rock and roll” lead singer and guitarist Jonny Fox declares. Drummer and singer Renee Couture defines the record as “If Clint Eastwood had a sound”. The Canadian rock duo is already off to a great start with their latest single “Wild” released March 30th, featuring a co-write with Three Days Grace member Neil Sanderson. The track is a hypnotic high-powered number with a magnetic and gritty guitar lick, featuring Couture’s mountainous drums all topped with Fox’s dynamic and vigorous vocal. The Standstills have paired these elements seductively with psychedelic imagery, putting this duo in the sights of trend setters and hard rockers alike.
