Band Bio + iTunes and Bandcamp links

Your Cannons are a rock band from San Francisco. Influenced by other rock bands, the books they‘ve read, and what their parents taught them as children, their songs are built around a dynamic three guitar attack, tight rhythms, layered with vocal melody, and heavy with distortion and effects.

Your Cannons formed in San Francisco in late 2008, and started playing around the Bay Area in early 2009.

Your Cannons are truly multicultural, with members from England, Sweden, and the USA, but bridged their xenophobia with a mutual love of early Verve and Mogwai, and a desire to craft guitar music that was intricate, powerful and emotive.

Your Cannons’ music has been described as having, "an otherworldly sound, like, a slow-motion mosh in a room filled with red strobe lights."

Your Cannons released their debut recording, the Dust Bowl EP, through iTunes and Amazon, to some critical acclaim, and followed with "EP 2" in August 2010.

Your Cannons are rapidly building loyal following through regular shows in and around the Bay Area, as well as recent shows in SoCal, but would step over their own mothers to tour nationally with another band they admire and respect.

Your Cannons won The Deli SF website ‘Band of The Month’ award in December 2009, but only because they got their parents, aunties, uncles and grandmas to vote for them.

Your Cannons are represented by New York agency DeepFreeze Music for TV and Film licensing.

Andrew Chamings - Vocals, Guitar
Jeff Knutson - Drums
Chris Trewin - Guitar
