Recorded in the summer of 2022 at The Tragically Hip’s studio, The Bathouse and Shoebox Studios, Under Control was made possible with the help of producer Brian Moncarz. The 13 track album highlights important matters such as alcohol dependency, love, loss and taking accountability as displayed in new tracks: Borrowing Happiness, Obstacles and Monumental Health.

 

“Inspiring growth through perseverance, ‘Under Control’ ebbs and flows bending the rock/pop influences from generations before us combined with our personal flair to create a product that is uniquely ours. We didn't shy away from the messages, topics and production throughout the album. We walk a thin line between a showboat and a shipwreck and we wanted that portrayed on the record. This album is straight from the heart. It's about reflection; looking in the mirror, digging deep and telling the stories about some of the most influential ups and downs of the last decade,” said Andre Pettipas.

 

“We didn't want to put any restrictions on the album sonically or contextually as we were aiming to show vulnerability throughout. Getting to record the album at The Bathouse was an absolute dream. The vibe in the house was nothing short of extraordinary and we are grateful for the opportunity. We're excited for people to get a deeper look into what we have to offer as a group with this release. It's about getting your life 'Under Control' and finding the balance that works for you so that you're able to pursue what makes you tick.”

MISFORTUNE FT. MORGAN TONEY

MUSIC VIDEO LAUNCH

Grease Coast Rock N’ Rollers, Andre Pettipas and The Giants dial back the tone knob with a little help from their friend, Morgan Toney on ‘Misfortune.’

Ruminating on the trials and tribulations of trying to “make it” in the music industry; going for broke and scrapping to stay alive.


 


Produced by Brian Moncarz (Alice Cooper, Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party) and mastered by Randy Merrill (Foo Fighters, Harry Styles, Nirvana), ‘Misfortune’ takes you to a place that Andre Pettipas and The Giants haven’t visited before with a softer, hook laden song in the realm of Lumineers and the softer side of The Tragically Hip.
