Formed in 1992, The Killjoys became a big part of the Canadian music scene with three albums under the Warner Music Canada record label. For six years the band remained active, having seven top 40 singles and touring Canada numerous times.
” Lyrically, it’s an antidote to adversity; musically, it’s a whirlwind of energy and emotion, ebbing and flowing like the tide for an unparalleled musical experience.”
The Killjoys‘ released their debut album, Starry, in 1994 with the singles Today I Hate Everyone, Dana and Anyday Now. That was followed in 1996 with the release of Gimme Five featuring the singles Rave + Drool, Soaked, and Look Like Me. The third album, Melos Modos, came out in 1997 with the singles Sick of You, I’ve Been Good, and Perfect Pizza.
