The Early Years
The Early Years
Our story begins with two brothers in 2009, Brennan Dube at age 15 and Cameron Dube at age 11. Brennan had just begun to learn to play songs on the guitar and sing as his little brother had just begun taking drum lessons and was improving very quickly. The two would jam all sorts of songs between Green Day and Johnny Cash, never would they have thought years later they’d be in a rock band performing for dedicated fans of theirs. Dylan Pendleton, a friend Brennan had met at school, had also begun to learn guitar, not long after the three were jamming in the Dube basement performing for parties held by Brennan and Camerons parents. “We were hooked!” says Brennan “There’s something about playing music and performing for a crowd that just gets me, its so nerve racking yet so satisfying at the same time.” And so they were now a band, Dylan switched from guitar to bass and Endless Sorrow was born.
They played their first public show at Encore Bar and Nightspot in Chatham on January 24th 2010 for a local showcase. At this point they had a few original songs and had a set list of solid rock and pop-punk covers. They we’re even featured on a local television program called Shattered, “The drummer is so young, he may still believe in Santa Clause! I was told they will start recording this summer I can’t wait to hear what they put out as this band gives me some hope for the future of music.” — Jon Duwyn – SHATTERED.
July 1st 2010 Endless Sorrow was now Letterbomb, with addition of Nick Grand on guitar the band was set to record their first full-length album “Hollywood’s Not For Me”. They were sent to Number 9 Studios in Toronto to record with help of Jane and John Cabuche. The album was released in November of 2010 and rocked their local scene! They we’re now being asked to perform all around Southern Ontario, and were receiving rave revues as well as regular airplay on a few local indie radio stations!
April 2011 rolled around and Nick Grand had left the band. Now a 3-piece once again they began to write more music. In August of 2011 they entered Eyeres Studio, just down the road from the Dube household, to record their second full-length album “Bombs Away” with Bob Hiltz. 6 Days later the album was finished and was released in May of 2012. The summer of 2012 was a very successful season for the 3 young pop-punk rockers. They were performing their original music as well as covers (pop-punk, rock, alternative, reggae, blues, and even a little bit of country here and there) 2 to 4 times a week. 2013 was also a big year for the band releasing their 3rd album the “Teenage Loser” E.P including 6 tracks recorded in the Dube basement with help from Jordan Sterling.
Letterbomb today has only grown more mature, aggressive and hungry to take their music to the masses. Growing older and learning more everyday has allowed the young group to create an even bigger alternative rock sound while still remembering their pop-punk roots. Still jammed pack with pure, raw energy Letterbomb looks to take 2014 by storm. Look for new music in the near future these guys show no signs of slowing down!
