Third Place – Don’t Stop

Loving the vocal style of this track! It’s got a lot of sarcasm and anger and I always like that. The guitar work is just fun as hell to listen to. It ranges from this grungy dirty style to a somewhat clean style. That drum line has me smiling from ear to ear! It’s a great up beat line that I am betting kills live. That drum work is just straight up on point! The lyrics are so solid and delivered perfectly.

I love everything about this song! It’s upbeat rhythm and the delivery of the lyrics is freaking great. I can see putting this on a list with Rise Against and Fall Out Boy. This one has all the elements of a radio darling.  I want this tune so freaking bad. I will throw it on my server and on my phone ever so happily. It’s also got super sticky powers in that it’s already stuck in my head. I need lyrics so I can annoy everyone around me as I sing it as loudly as I can. Just go listen to this jam and love it!


Who They Are:

Third Place burst onto the music scene in February 2006, during the International Emergenza battle of the bands competition. The band celebrated its first anniversary on the night of the Grand Finale at the legendary Medley concert hall, finishing 8th among the 250 other acts in the competition! The following year, Third Place finished 6th overall! The formation then realized that their real passion was performing on stage!

Known for its compelling, dynamic sound and bold performance chops, Third Place released a self-produced demo entitled, Keep Your Dream Alive (2008). The circulation of the album resulted in the rapid growth of the band’s fan-base (12 000 devoted fans on Facebook to date).

 In November 2009, their first single Look At Me Now reached the 66th position in the Top 100 Palmares Correspondant Anglophone. Furthermore, the videoclip plays regularly on MusiquePlus and MuchLoud obtaining 86,000 views on Youtube. Their second single Feel The Beat also was added in rotation on MusiquePlus and MuchLoud, and got 140, 000 Youtube views. In November 2010, Third Place launched their new album Lifeland (2010), which has sold more than 3150 copies since its release date.

 During the 2011 Canadian Music Week event, Third Place met a lot of new contacts in the music industry. They signed a record deal with the label ”Let Artists Be (L-abe)” and was distributed with ”Select distribution”. The record company offers to relaunch Lifeland adding two songs including a cover of You Can’t Hurry Love, originally recorded by The Supremes in 1966.

 In 2012 and 2013, the band toured Ontario and Quebec. The boys are present in every related music event to promote their material. Third Place has done many interviews and live performances on MusiquePlus and MuchLoud. In the past year, Third Place has been working hard on writing new material and on the evolution of their sound with the renound producer Luc Tellier!
