Who is Today I Caught the Plague?
Today I Caught the Plague is an independent progressive metal band, recognized amongst their peers and wide fanbase for dedication to inventive songwriting, as well as hard work at building a respectable career in music.
July 4th 2008 - the release date of Today I Caught The Plague's (TICTP's) Ms. Mary Mallon EP. It was on this day the 6 piece progressive metal band, of which some members were fresh out of high school, began a journey that would take them to every major city in their country, as well as every McDonalds, Subway and truck stop. Since Its release, TICTP has self booked and embarked on 7 Canadian tours, totalling over 163 shows, performing coast to coast from St. Johns Newfoundland to Victoria B.C. They have even played many of the smaller cities in between, such as Marystown Newfoundland, Berwick Nova Scotia, Ingersoll Ontario, and Humboldt Saskatchewan — the list goes on. Since their debut release TICTP has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with high profile Canadian acts such as The Devin Townsend Project, and on multiple occasions, Protest the Hero. To this day, the band has self distributed and sold 3000 physical and digital copies of Ms Mary Mallon, with 40% of digital sales coming from the U.S.A as well as smaller percentages from Europe, Japan and Australia. TICTP has yet to play a show outside of Canada.
On the 14th of June, 2011, TICTP released their highly anticipated full-length, "Lore". The concept album provides listeners with a lyrical journey through ancient mythology from across the globe, thus creating a lyrical soundscape as epic and diverse as the music the band has been known to deliver. TICTP recorded the album at City Tape Studios in Toronto, Ontario, with producer Cameron McClellan and co-producer/engineer Anthony Cali who has done work for current acts, such as Abandon all Ships (Underground Operations/Universal Music Canada/Velocity Records/Rise) and Stereos (Universal Music Canada). Since releasing Lore TICTP has created quite the buzz amongst listeners, industry and the media, largely through live performances on their own tours, during stints as support for acts like Protest the Hero, and The Devin Townsend Project, as well as at notable festivals, including NXNE, and S.C.E.N.E. Fest.
In order to further promote, and support their latest release, the band will continue with touring endeavours, starting with a month long excursion with Protest the Hero, Periphery, the Jeff Loomis Band, and The Safety Fire, through the United States in March. Continued North American touring as well as slated treks through Europe are definitely in the sights of TICTP. As for what good fortunes will come from the band's hard work, there is no less than great expectations from their globally growing audience, as even while surrounding themselves with tales from darker ages, TICTP aim and prepare themselves for better, brighter days.
