Press Release

Dr Rage & The Uppercuts upcoming release 'Rage 3' is the third studio album from this Winnipeg based Alt Rock band. The new album finds the band evolving a fresher, more eclectic sound that pushes the boundaries of their usual genre. Tracks like 'Count on Me' and 'Standing on the Back of a Whale' are still within the blues/rock realm, however, the band shows it's gypsy punk and polka influences on 'Incarcerated Mind', 'Drinking Tequila' and 'Down to the River'.  Then things get downright heavy on the tracks 'Obscure Me', 'Consumed' and 'Death is the Navigator'.
 
No matter what the genre, the same bluesy, tortured vocals, guitars and driving bottom end underline the sound and give fans of the band that familiar 'Raging' vibe they have grown to love over the past 8 years. Rage 3 will be officially released to the public on February 1st 2014 at The West End Cultural Centre with opeing acts The Dirty Catfish Brass Band and The Scott Nolan Band.
