Jordan Hastings – drums
Adam Michael – guitar / vocals
Michael Zane – bass / vocals
When traveling the world as the drummer for Alexisonfire, Jordan Hastings would often spend his downtime working on songs of his own. While on a break from touring in the fall of 2011, Jordan booked some rehearsal studio time in his hometown of Burlington, Ontario, and together with his longtime friend: guitarist / multi-instrumentalist Adam Michael, the two set about turning those songs into the foundation of a new band: SAY YES.
By the spring of 2012, Jordan and Adam had come across a powerful local bassist Michael Zane, and quickly realized that he would be the perfect bass player to complete their power trio vision for the band. It would be only a short time later that the newly completed line-up of Say Yes would enter B-Town Sound Studios with producer Justin Koop (Walk Off The Earth, Billy Talent, Grade) at the controls to put down their debut recordings.
The results can be seen, heard, and felt in the first video from these sessions: ‘Sunrise’. A hook-heavy track that effortlessly shifts musical gears by combining a massive modern rock chorus with almost classic rock-like bridges, and flourishes.
With Alexisonfire having recently completed a Farewell tour, Jordan and his two new bandmates have turned their attention to Say Yes full time. Expect tour dates, and release information to be announced shortly.
