I’d argue that the concept of “Canadian punk” is an oxymoron, but then how we would explain the Canadian punk-rock outfit Billy Talent? The four-piece band began playing together in ’93 (under their old name, Pezz), and have since released five full-length albums. Their latest album, Dead Silence, debuted in September to rave critical reviews. While it took them nearly 10 years to achieve mainstream success, to-date they’ve received nine MuchMusic Video Awards and seven Juno Awards. And now, they’re heading out on tour.
