Their debut album was released in 2013 and was accompanied by videos for the title track
“Rev U Up” as well as “What’s Wrong Today”. Their song “Not a Good Day” placed top 25
in the 2014 CBC Searchlight competition. In 2015, D2UR entered “Silver & Gold” in the CBC
Searchlight competition and had a top 10 finish, a sign that their studio experience and song
writing craft was maturing. In 2016 D2UR released a single in Canada called “Losing Control”
featuring fiery slide guitar work that earned 15th place in the CJIM Montreal Independent
Rock Countdown for 2016.
“Tic Toc” is D2UR’s second full-length album featuring 11 new tracks that rise to a harder
rock platform than its predecessor. The music is guitar driven and relies on great rhythms
and solid groove. The band spreads its wings, full tilt rocking through songs such as Songs
such as “Run Devil Run” and “Losing Control”. In contrast, “Things” takes you on a bluesy rock,
shrapnel filed journey through the battlefield and the title track “Tic Toc” mysteriously grinds in
steampunk fashion giving way to a soaring Floyd like arena rock solo. “Piece of you” features
some tasty textural slide work ode to Joey Landreth, another fellow Winnipeg native.
This album rocks through the rolls and will surely be cranked wherever hard rock music abounds.
