The last time I saw The Damn Truth, they were headlining a show during the M for Montreal Festival, last November. Just before finishing the set, a very pregnant Lee-la Baum, the fantastic Joplin-esque lead singer of the band, announced they were taking a break. Well, here we are a few months later and we wonder…did they even take some time to relax during this break?!
The band came back in full force, announcing a canadian tour and releasing a new song. “Get With You” is pure The Damn Truth: classic rock-n’-roll sounds reminiscent of a 70s rock band. Baum’s coarse, powerful voice is predominant, backed by a group of equally talented musicians: Tom Shemer (guitar), David Massé (bass) and Dave Traina (drums). Though they might be in Baum’s shadow in this specific track, there’s really something to be said about how talented the boys of the band are (check out their song “Too Late”), which makes The Damn Truth a band you definitely need to check out.
A proper video for the song will soon be available but right now, do yourself a favor and download the song while it’s still free!
