Canadian roots rockers The Commoners reveal their title track “Find A Better Way,” the third single from their upcoming album, Find A Better Way. The single, out September 30th, is mixed by Kevin Shirley (Joe Bonamassa, Iron Maiden, Led Zeppelin), and taken from their album which is set to release November 4th.
“Find A Better Way” is righteous, uplifting, and full of the glory of rock and roll. It combines Southern Rock guitars and soulful vocals with the best of intentions for humanity’s future. The Commoners have the sound and feel of genuine rock music and use their own creativity to take those ideas to a modern crowd. Lead singer Chris Medhurst is powerfully charismatic and guitarist Ross Hayes Citrullo throws down licks and rhythms that demand to be heard. The music video that accompanies the track is another level of fun and will make you start checking The Commoners’ tour schedule for a local gig. Big winner, this one. Play it loud!
A southern influenced rock & roll four-piece, The Commoners are a band with a conscience. In their forthcoming release, The Commoners remind us that music has the ability to heal, a balm for the soul during dark times.
Medhurst says, “Our current world throws a lot of challenges at us all. We don’t have control over that, but we do have control over how we respond. Find A Better Way is a powerful rock anthem that speaks to the challenges we must overcome and our need in humanity to find a better way.”
“Find A Better Way”
Described as “a classic rock and roll affair,” the nine songs on the upcoming album take the listener on a sonic voyage through the lives of the band, from the dusty back roads of rural Ontario to the bright lights of the big city. Offering their own blend of rock and roll, southern blues, and roots music, the Toronto-based four-piece band are known for their high-energy riffs, soulful vocals, and rich harmonies. The result is an authentic Southern-style rock experience. The band’s shared dream is to share music that’s an authentic nod to the greats who have come before them.
“The new album authentically embodies the rock and roll, soul, and blues rock experience,” adds Medhurst. “That’s something we really wanted to bring back. That’s the roots. That’s what we listen to.”
