Just when you get used to people saying rock music is dying out, a new song drops to remind you exactly what you loved about it in the first place. With their new single Crawl, Toronto hard rock band Uforia dish out the kind of driving riffs and angsty choruses that have made household names out of Foo Fighters and Green Day – and prove that loud guitars, big drums and a defiant message can still hit the sweet spot.
Crawl is out now on all streaming/download platforms – check it out on Soundcloud below.
“This was the easiest lyric to write,” says Uforia frontman Michael Ursini about the new single. “Crawl is a song about perseverance. The struggle of fighting through all of life’s obstacles can take a toll on the human body and mind. It reminds people to have faith in themselves – it’s pretty much how I feel every day, trying to get ahead in the music industry.”
What began as a solo project for Michael Ursini has morphed into Uforia, a talented four-piece hard rock band that has released three EPs since 2012. The band has won a number of plaudits including being crowned winners of both Hard Rock’s Rising Canada competition and Jack Daniel’s Support-ing Act contest, and received Mississauga Music awards for “Best Rock Artist” (2017) & Song of the Year (2018). Their single Fight or Flight is heard regularly at Canadian sports stadiums, including the Toronto Blue Jays baseball and the Toronto Maple Leafs and Ottawa Senators ice hockey games. The song also soundtracks the NFL, being played on the Buffalo Bills pre- game playlist.
