We psyched to announce we're playing two of our very favourite festivals again this summer.

June 13th, we kick off Ottawa Explosion at the 27 Club in Ottawa.

Explosion was our very first show 2 years ago and we're thrilled to be a part of this amazing, underground DIY fest again this year.

You can get early bird tickets from the Ottawa Explosion site here

The following week, from June 20 to 24, we're at Calgary's Sled Island!

Home of our friends at Saved By Vinyl, we're so happy to be heading west again this Summer.

Watch for our show updates at Sled coming soon! 

Cups N Cakes: A DIY labour of love comp!  

We're thrilled to be a part of this - our first compilation!

Cups N Cakes have been such great supporters during the early days of the Expanda Fuzz journey, so we're excited to contribute an unreleased track to this sexy, cool looking cassette!

In fact, the track is one of the very first songs we ever wrote and recorded. Expanda Fuzz history, folks! 

Find out more about the comp here

You can pre-order it from Cups N Cakes now. And we'll also have a very limited handful for sale at our Ottawa Explosion show on June 13 at the 27 Club...more details on that show coming soon. ;)

Expanda Fuzz. Hallowe'en Ice Cream. BOO!

Expanda Fuzz release 'The Last Of The Who Heads' EP, play launch show

Hey Expanda Fuzz pals, 

We've got some new music to share with you, from our garage to yours:  


'The Last Of The Who Heads' is a brand new track some of you may recognize from recent live sets. 

The second track on this EP is a cover song called 'Cheerleader' which was written by Jeff Kainz and legendary Ottawa band 'Werbo' (Check out his amazing new band, Coastal Pigs).  

The downloadable EP is rounded out by a live version of our Bleuets song 'Psychopaths In Lukewarm Baths', recorded this summer, live-to-air on CJSW's 'Saved By The Bell' during Sled Island.  

And as always, the ultra cool Pez-inspired artwork is by Expanda Fuzz's own Niki Nine Doors

LIKE VINYL? To celebrate our upcoming release show with our pals Costal Pigs (who are also releasing a record that night) on Sept 28th at the House of Targ, we're releasing a SUPER limited 12" lathe cut: 

Side A: 'The Last Of The Who Heads'  

Side B: 'Cheerleader

And all 12" lathes come with a download card that includes the live version of Psychopaths In Lukewarm Baths (from our Bleuets EP).  

Folks who come to our show get first dibs on these 17 copies. Yep. SUPER limited.

Get our first album Bleuets here: 

"This two-piece would be equally at home playing to the beard-strokers at a Warhol Factory Party as they would be ignoring their neighbour’s angry knocks for making too much racket in the garage". - Sled Island

"Sometimes some stripped back rock'n'roll is just enough, add in the darker garage edge, and that's enough boxes ticked for me!" - Beehive Candy

"Expanda Fuzz may be my new favorite band." - Brent Oliver, Artistic Director, Up + DT Festival, on Twitter

About:
Expanda Fuzz
was conceived attempting to rip apart a Pink Floyd song with a distorted bass and a fuzz-driven guitar through a ripped speaker cabinet...while playing to a Roland 404 sampler. The result of that experiment can be heard on the duo’s new record ‘Bleuets’, where they showcase their brand of catchy, droney, post-punk songs that hook heavily into a psych-garage sound.

Think Kim Deal fronting the Velvet Underground, or Mary Timony jamming with Suicide. And while that initial Pink Floyd cover has yet to surface, many more Expanda Fuzz releases are planned for 2017.
