Coloured Prints

Formerly known as The Shagbots (minus one member), Coloured Prints are four extremely hardworking  superfriends who have decided that being in a band actually means something, and that playing a few local shows and releasing a couple demos is not nearly enough.   Their debut album, “We Were Born Tigers”, has charted on college/indie radio stations around the world, and in between an appearance at last year’s SXSW showcase in Austin, TX, managed to tour Canada in a stinky van.   I knew when I first watched them perform that they were very different than any other band I had seen in Calgary at the time, and they really stood out in my mind because of their explosive  energy, originality, and overall tightness as a unit.   I have been following their progress for a few years now, and I become a bigger fan of the band every time I have the honour to see them, or listen to their music.  Currently in the studio, Coloured Prints are working on a follow-up to “We Were Born Tigers”, and birthing the latest installment of music that I’ll surely be looking forward to hearing.
