CANNONS is a dynamically intense power trio, born amidst the refineries and smokestacks of southwestern Philadelphia. Their sound is an amalgamation of many rock styles- with a particular affinity towards the late 80's/early 90's Dischord era. Yet CANNONS forges their own sonic identity that, in many ways, parallels their fair city: Amiable at times, trenchant at others, and always unapologetically loud. In March 2010, they released their critically praised debut album "Friendly Muscles" and had the pleasure of playing out locally at the Khyber, the M-Room, JR's Bar, and the Northstar.
