‘The band’s array of instruments includes just the right balance of
twang and heart to make their live show one to remember’
Toronto Guardian

‘They manage to deliver the energy of a jam band, but in catchy, radio-play length three-minute songs’Exclaim

Taking their cue from Aldous
classic tale of a one-man rebellion against the
norm, Union Duke’s
own Brave New World, as evidenced in
their new single, 123,
takes a much more laid-back approach. Swapping the mythical Soma for whiskey,
their protagonist enjoys a night on the town and looks to put the world to
rights from the comfort of his bed. In a three-minute sing-along anthem, Union
Duke take aim at modern society and apathy, with one famous collective in
particular being singled out as representing everything wrong with the world as
we approach the apocalypse.

Based in Toronto, Canada, Union Duke comprise Matt, Ethan, Jim, Will and Rob, genuine friends who take influence from the gems
of their parents’ record collections and injecting an extra dose of rock n roll
attitude, whilst staying to the traditional roots. Five singers; five
songwriters; countless reasons for them to be your new favourite band. With
three albums, countless festival stages, and hundreds of thousands of kilometres
in the rear-view, the band is excited to be touring new music and winning new
fans everywhere they go. In the two years since their last record Golden Days, Union Duke has been steadily travelling and
unravelling across the country, and they’re ready to share the lessons they’ve
learned with a slate of new music. 123 is the second of four new songs of love,
distance, heartache and revelry which will be finding their way into your ears,
eyes and hearts.

Following their previous single, Ladidadida, which received radio play across Europe and North America, 123 was produced by Jeff Hazin between his studio and Taurus Recording in Toronto and features Alan Zemaitis (Buddy Guy, Whitehorse, Terra Lightfoot) on the organ.
