The Dabs melt blistering percussion with badlands rock and serve it to Edmonton's local music scene. Front man/guitarist Jeremy Dabs has no trouble referring to himself and his comrades Tyriddle(drums) and Zachula (bass) as astronauts of the bong to the Universe. Many veterans of the Canadian music scene will recognize the super group as a fusion of grunge rockers, A Hundred Years, paired with the groovy surf tides of The Burnin' Sands. Combined, their talent has spread to over 200 shows across Canada including Boonstock, Mad Hatter Festival, Alberta's Own Festival, Road to Indie Week, Bret Hart's Rock for Dimes campaign. They don't plan on stopping anytime soon.
Jeremy and Tyriddle met when they were 14 at McDonald's, and have always been active in their separate musical projects. Jeremy describes, "I supported Tyriddle with his music for over a decade. I never imagined we'd actually ever work together." Yet exactly 14 years later the two are beginning what could be described as the pinnacle of their musical careers. "I'm just here for the ride!" Zachula explains his commitment to staying true to their roots in heavy stoner rock, and traditional DIY ethics.
Following a near fatal fire accident in 2014, Jeremy was lucky to be alive. "I realized the love of life when I almost lost it. I realized what was truly important to me, and that is writing and making music". Both Tyriddle and Zach couldn't agree more about celebrating life by traveling across the country to record the greatest stoner rock album of Canadian history out of legendary Metalwork's Studio. "I know we're really ambitious to keep this project as Canadian as possible, but that's just us. We're going to be touring mostly in Canada. It's our home," says Tyrell. The record is scheduled to be recorded in March 2015, and kick of the leg of their first major Canadian tour this summer.
