Breaching Vista



January 2007 saw the launch of Kitchener, Ontario’s Alt-Rock quartet Breaching Vista. Since their inception, BV has found themselves sharing the bill with notable Canadian acts such as Hedley, Marianas Trench, Finger Eleven, Protest The Hero, Down With Webster, The Reason, Stereos, Social Code, San Sebastian, Shiloh, USS, Ten Second Epic, pop diva Kreesha Turner, and many more.

The release of 2008’s ‘Breaking The View’ EP, paired with their rock-solid-crowd-pleasing live performance, helped them land the closing ceremonies of the Canada Day Celebration in Waterloo, ON, for 3 consecutive years (2008, 2009, and 2010) to an audience of 10 thousand plus (10 000+) spectators each year, along with other prominent shows including 91.5 the Beat’s “Beat Rocks The Block 2010”, “Spring Music Festival 2010”, “Rock the Mill 2010”, “Barrie New Music Festival 2010” (where they received the ‘Best New Alternative Rock’ award), with 2 solid showcases during “Indie Week Toronto 2010”, and the Sirius Satellite CMW opening party for Canadian Music Fest 2011. Their music has garnered media attention with print, online, and both college and major radio stations, which helped lead to signings with Canadian indie label Bright Side Records, and UK indie label Engineer Records.

Armed with a plethora of new material, a pair of independent labels for support, a continuously growing & loyal fan base, and the drive that many bands aspire for but only few possess, Breaching Vista is fired up and hitting the road in support of their newly released sophomore record, “Vera City”.
