What does a DIY Canadian rock group do after charting on the National Loud Chart, releasing a viral video-game anthem and touring the globe in the wake of critical reviews and mainstream press?
Whatever they want.
The newest offering of hard-rock mad-science from Double Experience is “Rock (Geology)”; a continuation of the band's 5 year series of music released on collectible trading cards. The first, FACTOR-funded single, “The Pilot”, was released on November 16, 2017.
In fact, the only thing 'conventional' about Double Experience is their undying affinity for comic convention culture. The band have been performing for audiences at Ottawa and Montreal ComicCon as well as many other gatherings such as MAGFest and GuardianCon. Double Experience even earned unique in-game rewards and accolades from video game developer Bungie in response the band's Destiny-inspired single "The Glimmer Shot". Since 2014, the band have connected with hundreds of thousands of Spotify listeners with their quirky lyrical content. After hundreds of shows across 16 countries, their onstage prowess and global take-over is palpable.
Double Experience's DIY-story and business acumen has been shared at music industry conventions (IndieWeek Canada) and hundreds of high schools and colleges across the world. Since the band's inception in 2014, Band members Ian Nichols (vocals, bass) and Brock Tinsley (guitar) have established themselves as the nucleus of a dynamic alchemy of players, collaborating with musicians such as Fred Mascherino (Taking Back Sunday, Terrible Things) and Steve Bache (He is Legend) in studio and onstage.
