“When most kids their age were riffling through college textbooks and figuring out the path of least resistance towards some sort of stable income, these small town boys were riffling through their parents record collections, studying the messy emotion-fuelled rock of Pavement and the fuzzy post-rock discography of Sonic Youth, dreaming of ways they could marry it all together”
Sandman Viper Command are Audio Blood’s newest addition to their already AWESOME roster of artists; four best friends Rob Janson, Aaron Harvey, Dan Reardon, and Matt Meyer make up this ambitiously named group. In the beginning, they locked themselves up for days in their parents’ basements practicing and refining demos; only emerging when they had stumbled upon the most perfect blend of garage pop/guitar fuzz rock Canada has heard in a long time.

♥Did you know? Sandman Viper Command isolated themselves for six months in a barn on the outskirts of Hamilton, Ontario with producer Dave King; recording intensely to ensure Everybody See This captured the raw, frenetic qualities of the band, and achieving that lofty childhood goal of creating a sound they can call their own.
