The Veer Union - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
The Veer Union
The Veer Union is a Vancouver based hard rock band that formed in 2004 and has collectively sold over 100,000 Albums and also reached over 20 Million Streams Worldwide. With seven Top 40 singles on the Billboard Rock Radio Charts the band has proven they can stand the test of time. With the release of new single and video "NUMB" (Acoustic), The Veer Union plans on reaching new heights ahead of the release of their new album "Decade 2: Rock & Acoustic" on August 31st.
Singer Crispin Earl says, “I decided to do this cover not only because everyone in The Veer Union are huge fans of Linkin Park and wanted to honor Chester Bennington and his immense contribution to the world with his voice and music, but on a personal level I have also struggled with depression which I have written about and talked openly about for years. The song 'Numb' has always spoken to me on very personal level and all I can hope is that we did some justice to it, to pay homage to Chester. It was a tremendous loss, and he will live in our hearts and souls forever."
TVU released their first independent album titled “Time To Break The Spell” in 2006 under the name Veer. The band quickly gained notoriety after winning a spot in the CFOX 99.3 Vancouver "Seeds" radio competition in 2007. In 2008 the band updated their name to The Veer Union and landed a record deal with Universal Records. The critically acclaimed 1st single "Seasons" charted Top 10 at Active Rock Radio in the US and Canada. 2009 saw the release of their Universal distributed album "Against The Grain", which included "Seasons", "Youth of Yesterday", and "Darker Side of Me". In 2012 the band released their self-produced 3rd album (the 2nd as The Veer Union) "Divide the Blackened Sky" which yielded the Active Rock hit "Bitter End". In late 2013 TVU released the "Life Support, Vol. 1" EP as part of a Kickstarter campaign.

In 2016 released the 4th full length LP “Decade” to commemorate the 10th anniversary of their 1st release. With the success of the album “Decade” and the single “Defying Gravity” – which chronicles Earl's battle with depression, the band is continuing down that same road of success by now releasing “Decade 2: Rock & Acoustic”. The album will be released on Crispin's own Rock Shop Entertainment label (RSE) on August 31st, 2018. An extensive touring schedule commences just before the "Decade 2" release in late August and will continue throughout the rest of 2018 into 2019.

Mastiv
MASTIV was Formed in the spring of 2008 by Steve Thiriot (Vox/Keys), with founding members Chris Whitney (Guitar/Vox) Lance Isbell (Drums), and Chris Meyer (Bass) They created a very unique style of metal, welding together elements of Hard Rock, Thrash, Metalcore, and Trance. After a few line up changes, adding Jonathan Rojas, (Lead Guitar/Vox) George Russell, (Drums) & Nick Langlois, (Rhythm Guitar) in 2012, MASTIV played many successful shows including opening for FEAR FACTORY.

Plans were in the works to revive MASTIV with all original members in spring 2015 when sadly, founding member Lance Isbell passed away from a heart attack in July of 2015.

In fall of 2016 Steve Thiriot reached out to founding Members Chris Whitney, and Chris Meyer, to reform MASTIV and honor they're fallen band mate. Both were unable to commit due to other important obligations. Chris and Chris gave Steve they're blessing to continue on.

November 2016 started the rebirth of MASTIV. Steve invited long time friend James Hoover (Drums) to join him on this new chapter of MASTIV adding Nikki Rangel (Bass) and for a short time Del Vaught (Guitar)

In July of 2017 MASTIV Added Madzilla (Lead Guitar) and Dane Haws (Rhythm Guitar) to complete the missing pieces of the puzzle and the current line up of MASTIV.
