Since day one in early 1997, Twenty2 have been rocking stages all over Canada with their unique skate-style of punk rock. Months after their first performance, they were asked to open for top national acts such as Blink 182, Good Riddance, AFI, No Use For A Name, Diesel Boy and more. The band decided to record an EP to help get their name out, so they released Winter Sucks in February 1998. After its release, their popularity quickly grew, and they were approached by a number of independent record labels. Soon after, they recorded their first full-length, Porn Rock, for Springman Records. In November 2000, they released a new eight-song EP called Keepin’ Busy on Lameass Recordz, licensed for U.S. distribution by Springman Records. Months after its release, Twenty2 found themselves touring with national acts including Propagndhi, Cigar and X-Large. With the end of 2002 quickly approaching, the band signed with New School Records and released their full-length The Dudes Of Hazzard in November 2003, which gained them national television exposure throughout Canada on Much Music and Musique Plus and landed them on tour with Ten Foot Pole.
After the release of Unstable in late 2004, Twenty2 found many opportunities knocking at their door… From a 3 week tour with Rise Against, to regular airplay on Quebec’s ever popular music television network, Musique Plus. With Twenty2’s popularity quickly increasing, New School Records presented the band with an offer they couldn’t refuse... The re-release of their first three records all crammed together on one disc!
Still Busy is a 16 track compilation of Twenty2’s first three CD’s that were originally released in the early stages of the bands career. From the first track to the last, listeners will find themselves drawn in to the technical guitar riffs, fast paced drums and unique vocal style that only Twenty2 can deliver. With new eye-appealing artwork and crisp digitally re-mastered sound, Still Busy will soon be labeled as a must for any current fan and will un-doubtfully gain respect from punk rock fans everywhere.
