SUMMERSIDE – Summerside’s Aron Scott Earthquake has just released its first single entitled “Tonight” off of the new album “Rager,” due out in early July.
The arena/hard rock band includes Aron Scott, on guitars and lead vocals, Yves Arsenault, on drums and backup vocals, Kyle Culleton on guitar and backup vocals, and Jeff Smith on bass.
Originally formed in 2014 as a recording project, the release of the self-titled debut album brought airplay in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Australia. The debut album was also featured in Fireworks Magazine and received positive album reviews.
The band has since played numerous venues on the East Coast, including some festival gigs, and has opened for such acts as April Wine and Finger 11.
In 2016 they played a showcase at Music P.E.I.’s May Run and released their first video for “Cosmic Hog.” To begin 2018, Aron Scott Earthquake released a video for “Sunshine and Rock n Roll” on Jan. 1.
