The Coast

The Coast was touted as one of the acts to watch in 2008 by Canada's national music monthly Exclaim and Toronto's Eye Weekly, thanks to the buzz that continued to grow as the band toured extensively across North America last year, playing alongside such acts as Tokyo Police Club, The Dears, Sam Roberts, The French Kicks, and a coveted CMJ showcase with Foals, A Place to Bury Strangers, and Le Loup.
