The Speaking Canaries are a rock band from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, led by guitarist/vocalist Damon Che. That’s the letter, here is the spirit: exuberance, catharsis, joy, abundance, excitement. For those who enjoy hearing a guitar pushed to its limits but without the sacrifice of song and multi-dimensional emotional expression, Get Out Alive represents a bumper crop.
Says Mr. Che: “If this was not my own music and I were to buy this record, my first reaction would be thankfulness. I would just be glad that something like this existed. Most rock these days is so compressed that is sounds like a sheet of aluminum foil.”
“Rock music should transcend itself at all times. It should make you want to augment it, to do what inspires you.”
