ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
With unbridled artistry, local St. Catharines, four-tet, Waterbodies, introduce us to The Evil We Know. The much-
anticipated contrivance of their immense forward momentum, the debut album naturally traverses through an eclectic
collection of songs that are undoubtedly their own. Contagious, spirited and undeniably human, The Evil We Know is an
album that can truly be described as one of a kind.

From the offset, the album is melody rich, with a rigid backbone and a dark underbelly – an honest account of
Waterbodies’ own brand of alt-rock with pop-sensibility. While the name Waterbodies suggests a morbid, much darker
side of humanity, The Evil We Know plays with the themes of changing tides and at times, fierce, unpredictable nature.
Attributing much of Waterbodies’ success to their high-energy performances, tracks like the ironically, unrelenting, "A Glasgow Kiss” and upcoming, love/hate single “How to Burn Bridges,” capture the energetic onslaught and transport the audience to a
musical battleground.

It’s no coincidence that Waterbodies’ call the shoreline towns surrounding lake Ontario home. Native to St. Catharines
and Niagara region, where they have performed at In The Soil festival twice and S.C.E.N.E. festival four years in a row,
Waterbodies have played amongst notable artists including Fucked Up!, Dinosaur Bones and O’Brother. Their musical
community of fans and industry supporters includes Hamilton, Guelph and Toronto Ontario, where Waterbodies have
been steadily performing at out-of-town events like CMW 2012. The Evil We Know promises to once again break borders
and reach critical acclaim amongst supporters across the province. The honesty and artistic strength the album boasts is
profound. The four piece have finally captured a sound they are proud to display to the Canadian musical landscape.

And that sound is truly the collective effort of all four members. Mike McGean, Dylan Turner, Shane Turner and newest
addition Rick “Roxy” Fast, are the minds behind Waterbodies’ engaging, emotional and cerebral music. The Evil We
Know, produced by engineer/producer Dean Malton, draws influence from Waterbodies artist community, while conveying
the experiences of their individual lives.

During a conversation about the shadow that is often cast over the music industry, Malton turned to the band in his
Ridgeway, ON studio and his advice resonated. “Sometimes it is better to live with the evil you know, rather than the evil
you don’t” In an industry that puts you at the mercy of your critics, it’s not as important to know your enemies as it is to
realize your friends. If there is one thing that is clear about Waterbodies, it’s their high caliber performance and undeniable
artistry.

Friend or foe we will all agree that the The Evil We Know will be one of Ontario’s finest releases for 2012.
