CONVERSATION is a five-piece post-hardcore band based in Toronto, Ontario.
CONVERSATION began in Victoria, BC in 2007 with the sole purpose of creating something that they could believe in, the one rule was that the music had to speak for itself; it had to be honest.The band relocated—and essentially reformed with three new members—in Toronto in 2013. Since reforming CONVERSATION has been actively playing shows and writing new music and intends to start releasing new music in early 2014.
CONVERSATION have a frantic, high energy make up that ranges from crushing breakdowns to ambient bridges and anthemic choruses. Their live show walks a fine line between controlled chaos and outright bedlam, yet all the while maintaining enough composure to start and stop on a dime. They believe that the greatest music is created when you simply allow it to be what it needs to be.
During their time in Victoria, CONVERSATION played shows with names like Cancer Bats, A Textbook Tragedy, Ten Second Epic, Gob, Theset (now Blitz//Berlin), and Acres of Lions as well as playing the Calgary leg of Warped Tour.
CONVERSATION is influenced by the likes of Alexisonfire, Glassjaw, At the Drive-In, Norma Jean, the Bled, Thrice, and Deftones.
