With Roadmap to Redemption, Mobile displays the same undeniable chemistry and deft songwriting chops that propelled them to prominence in their original career from 2002-2015. This time out, however, the original four-piece band (front-man Mat Joly, guitarists Christian Brais and Frank Williamson, and drummer Pierre-Marc Hamelin) have an entirely new perspective on their partnership and the music industry.
The result is a record that captures the urgency of their earlier material but finds Mobile growing into a more focused style; a seamless blend of modern pop and the signature sound they developed over countless hours of practice and performance.
Produced by Gauthier Marinoff, Roadmap To Redemption is equally as compelling and vital as Mobile’s early work. But getting back together wasn’t about reliving their past or chasing a hit; it was about chasing something even more intangible.
Mobile first found success in the early 2000s, winning CHOM’s L’Esprit competition in 2001, relocating to Toronto in 2003, and constantly honing their performance and songwriting chops before landing a deal with Universal/Interscope. On the strength of hits like ‘Out of My Head (which was nominated for a MuchMusic Video Award and reached the top spot on the Canadian Billboard Chart) and the placement of ‘Montreal Calling’ and ‘New York Minute’ in a variety of TV shows, films, and video games (among them One Tree Hill, Bon Cop, Bad Cop, NHL 07, and FIFA 07), the band found their profile growing nationally.
Fueled by the lead off first single, “In My Heart” the new album captures the past intensity of the bands music, while revealing a new sound and momentum for the band in 2023, the album will be followed by a Canadian tour later in 2023.
