Roads is a Canadian pop rock band from Montreal. Their debut album, Remember Today (produced by Scott Moffatt), is set to launch on October 26, 2010.
Roads, (formally known as Flicker), came to fruition in 2006. For several years, singer/songwriter Garen Jemian had the project on the back of his mind and it was while singing in a francophone punk band, Les Sales Adjectifs, that he met Iris Campo while auditioning as bassist for her band Overseas.
The chemistry between the two was immediate and the creative process was soon underway. They soon auditioned an old friend of Jemian's, now lead guitarist, Alfred Jozikian, to add some dimension to the music. At Alfred's house on that night, an antiquated PC and a modest-looking computer mic were all it took to convince the newly formed trio that they were onto something really special.
It was all the proof Jemian needed to push forward as he put together a handful of songs and started working on a demo. By May 2007, the self-produced record, "The Great Lament", was completed. With great support from their entourage, the album launch was an incredible success and gave the band the momentum it needed to get signed to Indica Records.
In March 2008, they made their first appearance at Canadian Music Week.
The new band name makes reference to the life experiences each member has accumulated, and to the coincidences that led the three founding members to form this project and embark on this journey together.
Their latest release "Remember Today" was produced by Canadian artist/producer Scott Moffatt.
