Although the EP was self-released and never got an official distribution in the shops the band sold all the copies and had to reprint it. Canadians submitted to the Heineken Jammin’ Contest in 2006 and won the contest and got featured as Breaking Band in NME, they were the first Italian band ever to get a review in NME’s Breaking Band column. Canadians were featured in the U.S. TV show Project My World and raised interest among the thousands of American indie fans. Canadians played at the International Pop Overthrow Festival at Cavern Club in Liverpool in May 2007. Their debut album “A Sky With No Stars” will be released by the Varese-based indie label Ghost Records in September 2007. The album showcases the great ability of the band, which plays catchy melodies, indie pop anthems and unforgettable and timeless melodies.
