FRIDAY, AUGUST 19 • 12:30AM • AFTER PARTY with REVIVE THE ROSE • ELORA BREWING COMPANY
Toronto based garage punk psych rockers, Wine Lips hit the stage for the first time in the fall of 2015. Initially a part time project between songwriter/guitar player, Cam Hilborn and drummer Aurora Evans, the band began playing clubs in Toronto, stretching organically to surrounding Ontario cities, and then Quebec. By mid 2017 it was clear that the band members were ready to make a full-time commitment. Wine Lips released their self-titled debut LP on indie label Fried Records and set out on their first 5-province tour east to Halifax, and haven’t looked back since. After an appearance in Quebec City, the band was approached with regard to touring overseas. That chance meeting resulted in an April 2018 tour of Hong Kong and China, where they were received by enthusiastic audiences.
Never letting the dust settle, the band released their follow up LP “Stressor” in March 2019 and toured North America relentlessly until early 2020. The release of Stressor along with endless tour dates earned the band a new following and saw some of the albums tracks featured on television and Netflix.
The band spent most of their free time in 2020 writing and recording their third full length record “Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party” at The Sugar Shack in London, Ontario with Simon Larochette.
“The record is crazy, we really spent a lot of time getting the songs to sound the way we wanted. I think this is the best stuff we’ve recorded and I’m super stoked with the end result!” - Cam
Wine Lips consists of Cam Hilborn on Guitar and Vocals with Aurora Evans on Drums, Jordan Sosensky on Guitar and Charlie Weare on Bass.
“Fuzzy, loud and fast, Wine Lips are a garage/ punk/ psychedelic band whose music feels like a shot of adrenaline to the heart. A no holds barred kind of rock n roll that’ll make you want to buy a motorcycle, just to crash it.” – Sled Island
