Written as a bleak sequel to THE BARE MINIMUM‘s tongue-in-cheek song ‘Conspiracy’, “Conspiracy 2 (Shadowban)” comes with a furious delivery that doesn’t waste a second of its runtime. The single is accompanied with Heelys extreme sports video, wrapped in layers of irony, loosely inspired by the skateboard videos 90s punk bands were featured in. Check it out!
“We released ‘Conspiracy’ as a joke song about conspiracy theories in 2017 and to this day we still get weirdos in our comment sections. The world has changed a lot since then. We wanted to make a song about misinformation that was high energy and funny, without pouring more gasoline on the dumpster fire that has become public discourse. Fingers crossed.” said frontman Cam Gray.
THE BARE MINIMUM’s upcoming album ‘Is A Gateway Drug’ comes out November 4th and includes 6 new songs and 6 previously released singles (“Bonestorm”, “Scars and Stripes”, “Party Martyr”, “Echo in my Head”, “Bitter Pill”, and “Woah”).
Physical and purchased digital versions of the album contain an additional bonus song ’Stairway to Hell’. The album will be self-released on CD and available on all streaming platforms.
Rising out of the underground Toronto punk scene, the Bare Minimum channel but subvert skate-punk into something new.
Equally at home at a DIY basement show or festival stage, the Bare Minimum embrace the chaotic nature of punk shows emphasizing energy over precision. The band is also actively involved in promoting the local scene; self-releasing a documentary about a local DIY venue, interviewing their scene peers on their social media channels, curating playlists, and working with local non-profits. The Bare Minimum have played Pouzza Fest, Canadian Music Week, and NXNE; and shared the stage with Meat Wave, No Fun At All, and Adrenalized.
