Screaming at Traffic is a punk-rock band from Winnipeg, MB, and the latest project from longtime friends and collaborators Jacques Richer, Duncan Murta, Paul Colman, and Stefan St. Godard. Their no-frills emo-punk riffing is reminiscent of contemporary rockers like PUP and Milk Teeth.
After forming in May of 2017, Screaming at Traffic premiered their debut EP "S.A.T." via Idioteq.com, a Polish based webzine. In July, the album became available on Spotify, Google Play, and iTunes. The song "Monstrosity" off the group's debut EP was featured in a spotify playlist curated by the Montreal based website Punkanormal Activity. The EP also began charting on Earshot in October, reaching number 2 in Edmonton.
After a busy summer of gigging, the band mapped out their first Western Canadian tour, kicking off the tour with a local release party for the debut EP. After returning from tour, the band continued to gig relentlessly within their hometown of Winnipeg, becoming notorious for their energetic, frenzied live performances. After a busy 2017, Screaming at Traffic shows no sign of slowing down with a new EP and tour on the way for the spring of 2018.
