DOWN WITH WEBSTER is a 7-member, genre-bending, musical ensemble that incorporates everything from rock, funk, and hip-hop into their sonic brew. Their chaotic live shows are the stuff of local legend, selling 1000+ tickets as headliners in their hometown of Toronto as an indie band before ever releasing a single or video. DWW have played with everyone from The Roots to a month-long run on Warped Tour and slot on Virgin Festival in 2009. The band writes, produces and performs all of their music, garnering attention from industry veterans as varied as Timbaland and KISS front man Gene Simmons, both of whom wanted to sign the band to their respective labels. DWW won the Rogers Mobile/Universal Music best unsigned artist in Canada contest in 2008. Fans of bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Gym Class Heroes should take notice of this eclectic outfit.
DWW just wrapped up a summer-long spot on the Vans Warped Tour 2009. The band will open on The Forever The Sickest Kids Ã¢â‚¬Å“Cheap Date TourÃ¢â‚¬Â in November. Also, look for more details to follow as Down With Webster plans to tour through North America through the fall into winter.
