The Vancouver-based alternative band Econoline Crush — vocalist Trevor Hurst, guitarists Robbie Morfitt and Ziggy, drummer Nico Quintal, and bassist Don Binns — have made a significant name for themselves in Canada. They’ve loved major chart achievement there, and also have opened up Canadian/European trips for famous brands KISS, the Small Gods, Die Krupps, as well as the Tea Party. The music group started when vocalist Hurst relocated to Seattle and clarified an advertisement for a fresh music group in an area music paper. Acquiring their name from French novelist Euxebe Auxtry’s publication Jeu de Fountaine (where econoline crush was a medication that provides the hopeless a feeling of optimism), they combined option guitar-rock with digital music. After shifting from Seattle to Vancouver, they constructed a pursuing for themselves with albums such as for example 1994’s Purge and 1996’s Affliction. But their best success ended up being The Devil YOU UNDERSTAND, which quickly proceeded to go precious metal upon its launch, and is approaching fast platinum within their homeland. Their 4th album, COMPLETELY NEW History (2001), proceeded to go for a far more dynamic strategy in taking the band’s live energy.
