With Control is an up and coming rock band from Toronto, Canada. Comprised of three members, brothers Pat and Wes Clarke met their band mate Nick Bennett in 3rd grade. Formed over three years ago, the trio went from playing blues covers in their small town highschool, opening for the notable Blue Rodeo, April Wine and George Thorogood, to filling hard rock venues in downtown Toronto. Although they didn’t truly come together as a band until highschool, these three guys have extensive musical backgrounds. With Pat learning bass and vocals from an early age, Wes, an experienced drummer, and Nick, a pummeling guitarist, the trio began playing blues with other local musicians, eventually shifting to heavier music. With Control can be found at their house together in Toronto where they rehearse, record and put on house shows.They frequently play at live venues like the legendary Horseshoe Tavern and Bovine Sexclub. Preparing for their much anticipated album release this fall, With Control has released two singles titled “Name of The Game” and “One More Day” to give their fans a taste of what's to come.
“One More Day” is the first song that With Control ever wrote together. Guitarist, Nick showed frontman Pat the opening riff and they were immediately sold on creating a hit. With soul crushing guitar and a hard-hitting vocals, “One More Day” establishes an explosive and unforgettable intro. This track sheds light on the myth of the “One More Day” we all need to discontinue our destructive behaviors. Whether it’s interpreted as heavy subject matter regarding addiction, or something as simple as a diet, the joke is that “One More Day” never arrives. By procrastinating we’re stuck in a metaphorical purgatory and not moving forward in our lives. With Control delivers a hit laced with undertones of their blues background layered with smoky rhythms and tight grooves. Powerhouse collective With Control has their listeners instantly hooked on the brand new single “One More Day”. The honesty, soul and raw energy that goes into this song is easily heard through the speakers. With Control has outdone themselves with their flawless delivery and undeniably chemistry. We love what we’re hearing from this trio so far and we can’t wait to see what they bring to the table with their album release. Stay tuned!
