Toronto, ON – East Coast Rock Band Andre Pettipas and the Giants are set to release their new album No Fools No Fun on July 9 via all streaming platforms.
The 13-track album No Fools No Fun captures the no holds barred, kick-ass ethic the band brings to everything they do, and like never before.
Recorded at the The Chalet Recording Studio in Uxbridge, Ontario, 10 of the 13 tracks were produced by Brian Moncarz (Alice Cooper, Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party), along with some other well-known rock n roll heavy hitters including: Max Kerman of Arkells (Saint John String Quartet) who arranged “Dark Times”, John-Angus MacDonald of The Trews (Glorious Sons) producer of “Sympathy Card”, and Jason Jenkyns (The Stanfields, The Town Heroes) and Jon Landry (The Stanfields, The Town Heroes) who co-produced “The Swedish Motel”.
“Everyone has enough pain and anguish taking up residence in their minds at any given time. For us, it’s like, let’s just forget about all of that for a while and have a good time.’ That’s what we do at our shows and that’s the approach we took to this album,” said Andre Pettipas.
The first released single off the new album “Sympathy Card”, gained ground at Rock radio reaching #27 on the Active Rock Chart in Canada and breaking the top 50 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart in North America. The song is a damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead track emphasizing shrugging off adversity and not wasting time complaining about what you can’t change, but always making an effort to change what you can. In contrast, the singles “The Swedish Motel” and “Overtime” display the band’s ability to combine vastly disparate genres of rock and roll into a sound that’s undeniably and uniquely their own.
