This fine Thursday we'd like you to welcome our featured band Anu Beginning, a rock outfit from Ontario, Canada with "spirit filled lyrics, post-hardcore sound."
Please comment/rate and don't forget to be critical yet supportive.
Anu Beginning started as a hardcore band in the winter of 2008 with founding members Matt Saunders and Aaron Barry. The band began playing shows around southwestern Ontario, gaining a reputation as a band whom put on a solid, yet erratic and explosive live performance. They gained momentum, as well as a loyal fanbase around their hometown of Chatham, Ontario and throughout southwestern Ontario.
After recording their first self-titled EP in 2009, Anu Beginning picked up steam, playing close to 50 shows that year. The following year they recorded "Quiet Your Voice" EP which pushed them further into the scene, and strengthened band's reputation as a "must see" for their performance and stage antics. The "Quiet Your Voice" EP has sold 500 copies.
In 2010 Anu Beginning recorded their first full length disc, "We Move Mountains" in under a week at X22ii Studios in Windsor Ont. They released the record in April 2011, selling the original pressing of 250 copies quickly, having to re-press and selling out soon after. Songs off this album have been playing on radio stations across southern Ontario.
In their 4 years of being a band, Anu Beginning has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with some of the greatest bands in the scene, such as Dead and Divine, Straight Reads The Line, Kingdoms, Protest The Hero, Silverstien, I Am Committing A Sin and many others.
The band most recently have released a new EP "These Colours Won't Fade" in May 2012, and shot an accompanying video for the song "Good Heavens."
