Album Notes
"Rockstars and entertainers with a sincere change-the-world-with-heart attitude" (Midnight Matinee), Toronto's Paint have earned their reputation as one of Canada's hardest-working and most genuine indie bands with their infectiously energetic live performances, pop hooks, and lyrical depth.

Since the release of their critically-acclaimed 2009 debut Can You Hear Me?, Paint has played over 200 shows from Vancouver to Halifax, including multiple returns to North by Northeast (named one of the top acts of 2012 by The Toronto Star), Canadian Music Week, Indie Week, Hamilton Music Awards and New Music West, and been voted a listener-favourite on 102.1 The Edge.

Paint's 2011 sophomore album, Where We Are Today, was recorded and produced by Ian Smith with award-winning engineer Michael Chambers at Catherine North Studios (City and Colour, Feist, Gord Downie) and mastered by Joe Lambert in Brooklyn, NY (Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Social Distortion, Bright Eyes, The Trews). Influenced by Britpop and New Wave, Where We Are Today is dynamic and pop-focused; a step away from the "wall of sound," and towards more intricate and mature musicality and songwriting.

2013 witnessed the release of the Capsulated: Music Videos DVD, ambitiously compiling music videos for all ten songs on Where We Are Today (including the film festival-selected "Boomerang"), plus four videos from Can You Hear Me? and bonus documentaries.

Celebrating the 5th Anniversary of Can You Hear Me? in 2014, the band ambitiously compiled a 5-"disc" deluxe edition reissue.

Capsulated and the band's close working relationship with filmmaker R. Stephenson Price have opened a multi-media door into Paint's live show and visual aesthetic. Paint is set for an early 2015 release of a black-and-white short feature film called 11:11 and accompanying EP soundtrack, Based on Truth and Lies, courtesy of a dedicated fanbase through IndieGogo and the Canadian government's FACTOR program.

2015 will also witness the release of concert DVD and live album of all new material that was filmed to a sold-out audience in Toronto in October 2014.
