cleopatrick

Story

First or last, somewhere you’ve ashed the cigarette that’s gonna take you down.

cleopatrick are a heavy alt-rock duo from the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario – yup, the ‘c’ is lowercase.

At an ear’s glance, cleopatrick is hip hop heavy grooves and takedown breakdowns, but a close look conveys the driving mission of lifelong best friends Luke Gruntz (guitar/vox) and Ian Fraser (drums): to restore the outspoken provocation of real rock music via raw, abrasive honesty. You can call them and their contemporaries the new rock mafia.

Since releasing their sophomore EP the boys across five singles in 2018, cleopatrick have completely independently amassed over 25 million Spotify streams, have been featured on the front cover of Spotify’s massive “Rock This”, played their very first festival stage at Chicago’s iconic Lollapalooza, and recorded a live session at BBC’s legendary Maida Vale Studio 4. Their first international headline tour in late 2018 consisted of 38 dates across UK, Germany, France and USA, including a sold out London England and back to back sold out Toronto shows.

Major accolades continue to pour in from personalities include Jack Saunders (BBC Radio One), George Strombolopoulous, and Allison Hagendorf (Head of Rock, Spotify) as the band gears up to release their debut record later in 2019.
