When we last saw our heroes, they had just completed phase one of imminent global domination. In their calling card Don't Say A Word, Callahan delivered a statement of intent of the shape of things to come, and with their debut single Cover Story Glory, they delivered an anthem that has echoed across the country.
Bands however have never made their name from the humble surroundings of a studio, they earn their reputation on the road and this is exactly what Callahan have done. The last two years has seen them take to the roads of Canada on four different occasions, each time gaining more experience to becoming seasoned pros. Lessons have been learned (touring in the Winter is quite unpleasant it seems) and new material has been given the acid test, now it was time to move to phase two.
With new material ready to be delivered to a world audience, all that was needed was to record it and put it on compact disc. In October of 2007, our faithful sextet traveled to Hamilton Ontario to record what would be their debut album with Juno award winning producer Julius "Juice" Butty who had previously worked with fellow Canadian peers alexisonfire, City and Colour, and Protest The Hero. Over the course of two months, Callahan along with Juice put down tracks in Metalworks Studios, joining musical luminaries such as Guns N Roses, David Bowie, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Talent and Prince in recording there.
With phase two now complete, it is now time for the next step, the constant that drives all members, the love of the touring. This time however will see excursions adrift in previously unchartered territory. Now veterans of the road, it is time for phase three to kick into full effect, first Canada, then the world.
You are invited to join them on this journey.
