About Band

A New Honour is an emerging alternative rock band from Winnipeg, Canada that came together in September 2006. A line up change of the original three members forced the band to regroup and begin tracking their debut record at Studio 11 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Thirty-six songs were narrowed down to 14 for the debut album “The Untitled Truce”. The album spawned their charting single “Artificial” which landed them a spot on two radio station compilation CD’s, “Power 97’s Class of 2007” and “Freq 107’s Local Heroes Frequency Vol.1.”

The music can be best described as melodic alternative rock. The name sums it all up and describes the band’s attitude towards making music. A new creative outlet was formed and the ability to communicate and lift people up with their inspirational lyrics was seen as an honour to the band. The name, A New Honour, was what the band was looking for all along.

One of the most impressive facts about the band is their age. All being under 24 years old, the youngest member being 19, the band can only grow stronger in time. Writing songs since the age of 15, songwriter William Prince's talents improve daily and push the band's talent to a whole new level. With lyrics that flow effortlessly alongside well-constructed guitar riffs, it is easy to see why the band has become one of the most played unsigned rock bands on PureVolume.com, and are climbing the charts on MySpace daily.

The band has managed to create an online buzz on sites such as Myspace, Purevolume and Garageband. They have been featured in many newspapers receiving rave reviews for their performances and debut CD. Along with these accolades the band was awarded a special feature on CTV’s Spotlight with Sylvia Kuzyk. A New Honour are no strangers to the airwaves as they have done numerous radio spots on Power 97 and Freq 107 in Winnipeg, as well as receive daily airplay on Winnipeg's primary rock radio stations. At the same time, they were crowned the regional winners for the nationwide Mazda Muzik Tour in March 2008.

Now here in Winnipeg is a developing new force in alternative music. The band has done all the work necessary to build a strong home fan base and are excited to take their show on the road this summer. With a solid debut album, the group is currently being shopped to major labels, producers and agents to further their career. A New Honour is a band certainly on their way to success. Be sure to catch them online, on tour, and gracing the airwaves of your local rock station.
Press Reviews "Many songs on The Untitled Truce have the potential to find their way into a commercial radio station’s rotation, and main songwriter William Prince has the skills to pen a breakthrough hit. They have the modern rock sound and style down..." - The Winnipeg Free Press 3 out of 5 Stars

"...the melodies are strong enough to place them above the typical rock music masses that make one change the station...A New Honour proves to be worthwhile. It is encouraging to see local talent go that extra mile, attempting something bigger than the usual. What we have here is a band name to keep an eye out for and an album that will satisfy fans of the genre." - The Manitoban University of Manitoba Newspaper 4 out of 5 Stars
