Album Notes
It has been said that one’s personality is created by the environment that they live in; that every sight, sound, touch and smell fuse into one to create the root of their being. It is no co-incidence, then, that the eclectic musical personality of The Imports has come to be a flawless blend of the many musical influences and unique experiences of the band.

Choosing their name to convey the ethnic diversity of the group, The Imports – Roydin Monteath, Liam Harasym, Heston Jones, Earl Abalajon III, Arthur Latoszek and Nathan Dumancas each bring their own interpretation of music to the collective. Whether their influences be the psychedelic prog-rock of the Mars Volta, the soul-fused indie-rock of the Junction, the funk of the Red Hot Chili Peppers or the hardcore-punk of Refused, one thing is crystal clear; the Imports have created a sound that is completely their own.

In just under two action-packed years as a band, The Imports have accomplished what most local bands desire – the first significant tastes of success. The band independently released an e.p. recorded with renowned producer/engineer Greg Dawson [Moneen, The Junction, The End]; they won over significant crowds of fans across Ontario with their air-tight, dynamic live performances; they inked a record deal to London, Ontario’s Laris records; and they shared stages with critically acclaimed artists such as: Ill Scarlett, The Junction, The Salads, Hostage Life and Die Mannequin

The future is bright for this band of international troubadours. May 1st, 2007, was the release of their second e.p., titled, “Rhythm & Madness”. Recorded at Ryan Mills’ praised Sleepy Town Sound [The Old Soul, The Most Serene Republic, Fox Jaws] by engineer Mike Kuehn, and mastered by mastering guru Joao Carvalho [Death From Above 1979, Shout Out Out Out, The Meligrove Band], “Rhythm & Madness” marks the Imports' first release as a signed band, and their first serious volley of progressive, melodic, driving power-pop onto the battlefield of rock ’n’ roll.

If the future of popular music continues to flirt with intriguing genre fusions and raw, emotive live-performances, then the Imports have already championed the new sound. (Bio Written By: Ryan Tobin)
