Spun: Breach of Trust

By Jason McKay

An alternative rock band is the last thing you would expect to come out of the snow covered landscape of North Saskatchewan, but that is exactly where Breach of Trust is from. Maybe there’s something about coming from a small isolated town that creates good rock bands here in Canada. After all, Nickelback and Breach of Trust both have a similar sound with a strong guitarist and vocalist.

The band manages to come out with a sound similar to other alternative rock bands, but nothing really screams hit single like Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me” on the CD. With lyrics like “I didn’t want to be the one with my face against the wall/I didn’t want to be the one who would stand to lose it all” in the song “Bad Trip”, they might be a little dark, but the strong beat helps remove some of the harsh feeling from the song without destroying the message. An alternative rock band from Saskatchewan may not be what listeners crave, but with their strong beat and vocals, Breach of Trust seems to be going strong.
