On Holiday

since circa 2006
A rock/punk/pop, power-trio from Vancouver, BC, the band features the infectious melodies and progressive bass lines of Matt Rhode together with the powerful backups and aggressive guitar-playing of Conor Brandt. These two create a punk-influenced sound that is completed by hard-hitting, creative drummer Seamus O'Neal.
Sharing influences ranging from classic rock like Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and Pink Floyd to punk pioneers The Ramones and Sex Pistols, as well as more modern acts such as Nirvana, Weezer, and Deftones, the band came together in 2006 through a shared passion to craft songs that aim to get everyone to sing along at the same time as melting their faces! Throughout the next year the band gained a reputation for sonically assaulting crowds with their loud and eneregtic live shows.
In 2006, On Holiday was chosen as one of five winners in 99.3 CFOX's Vancouver Seeds contest giving them regular rotation air-play on the station. The following summer saw the band open for Billy Talent @ FoxFest, play Warped Tour, Whistler's Crankworkx, Kelowna's Wakefest, and the CFOX Seeds Showcase @ the legendary Commodore Ballroom (with Danko Jones). Also that year, On Holiday was voted "Best Local Band" in The Georgia Straight's Best of Vancouver Readers Poll.
The last few years have seen the band play many successful shows throughout B.C. (opening for Marianna's Trench, The Veer Union, and others) be involved in the building of Sandbagger Studios (homebase of Sandbag Records) and record the first tracks to their upcoming debut album.
The band is currently working on and recording new material with the producer/engineer team of Darryl Rompf/ Alex "Condor" Aligizakis (Hail the Villian). The band will also be playing more shows in the near future to further their progression and growth of an already faithful following.
