East Coast Rock Band Andre Pettipas and The Giants to Release New Album No Fools No Fun on July 9

A Who’s Who of Rock ‘n’ Roll Production Talent Lend Their Expertise To The Project

Toronto, ON – East Coast Rock BandAndre Pettipas and the Giants are set to release their new album No Fools No Fun on July 9 via all streaming platforms. The 13-track album captures the no holds barred, kick-ass ethic the band brings to everything they do, and like never before.

Recorded at the The Chalet Recording Studio in Uxbridge, Ontario, 10 of the 13 tracks were produced by Brian Moncarz (Alice Cooper, Our Lady Peace, The Tea Party), along with some other well-known rock n roll heavy hitters including: Max Kerman of Arkells(Saint John String Quartet) who arranged “Dark Times”, John-Angus MacDonald of The Trews (Glorious Sons) producer of “Sympathy Card”, and Jason Jenkyns (The Stanfields, The Town Heroes) and Jon Landry (The Stanfields, The Town Heroes) who co-produced “The Swedish Motel”.

“Everyone has enough pain and anguish taking up residence in their minds at any given time. For us, it’s like, let’s just forget about all of that for a while and have a good time.’ That’s what we do at our shows and that’s the approach we took to this album,” said lead vocalist Andre Pettipas.

The first released single off the new album “Sympathy Card”, gained ground at Rock radio reaching #27 on Billboard’s Active Rock Chart in Canada and breaking the top 50 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart in North America. The song is a damn the torpedoes, full steam ahead track emphasizing shrugging off adversity and not wasting time complaining about what you can’t change, but always making an effort to change what you can. In contrast, the singles “The Swedish Motel” and “Overtime” display the band’s ability to combine vastly disparate genres of rock and roll into a sound that’s undeniably and uniquely their own.

The album will also include the most recently released single “Homesick”, giving a major nod to late eighties and early nineties rock featuring Christopher Thorn the guitarist of critically acclaimed, chart topping, southern psych-rock band Blind Melon. Other standout tracks include “Last First Date Ever”, “Gone”, and “No Fools No Fun” – the perfect soundtrack to chase away the ongoing pandemic blues.

The Nova Scotia natives are already on the rise to fame with three #1 singles on nationally syndicated show, “East Coast Countdown” and showcasing internationally at Live at Heart/Sweden. They were also named Arkells: Leather Jacket Cover Contest Winner, were Casino NS Artist in Residence Finalists from 2016-2018, Q104 Homegrown Champions out of 120 bands (15k in prizes including the recording of our industry demo which led to the band working with Brian Moncarz), and Jim Beam National Talent Search Regional Winners (Halifax).

With their take no prisoners; live performances, stellar musicianship, and habit of finding grist for the songwriting mill in everything from southern rock to hip-hop and pop to prog, Andre Pettipas and The Giants are a rarity – an act who absolutely refuse to let anything take the fun out of their creative process and performances on record or on stage, and with absolutely no fear of stepping outside of the box to get their message across.
