The Juno for Breakthrough Group Of The Year was given out to Monster Truck. It is kind of cool when a band gives you exactly what you expect when you hear first hear the name. They definitely do that. They hail from Hamilton, Ontario and play a 1970’s tinged rock and roll style. As happens a lot, the band is an overnight sensation that took many years of hard work to become. Well deserved award.
Marianas Trench was the 2013 winner in the Group Of The Year Category. They beat out Billy Talent, Rush, Metric and The Sheepdogs in this category. The band is a pop/rock outfit, based out of Vancouver.Their breakthrough album, “Ever After” was released in late 2011 and has gained them a wide following. It is their 3rd album. One of my favourites is the song they played on the big show, “Stutter”. Very cool video.
There you have it. An introduction to Canada’s group of the year.
