LiABiLiTiES are Winnipeggers with a firm sense of self-discovery, self-deprecation and edginess, the band bridges the gap between mid-80's, post-punk aggro and late-90's post-grunge confessionalism. Having yanked unsuspecting bar-hoppers “down the front” and effectively pinned their ears back with a sublime blend of harmony, dissonance, hooks and brute force.
Will Cory (guitars), Jesse Joyal (bass) and Caleb Cormie (drums) began jamming riffs and melodies in a St. Norbert basement in May 2012. Lyrics were protectively workshopped and withheld until the right singer could be found. Brennan Hakes was “the one”, and his guitar playing was/is the perfect counterpoint to Will's. Jesse's and Caleb's similarly open-minded approaches to their instruments round out a sound that has matured organically, and will no doubt continue to do so.
