Our Darkest Days

Quebec City, Canada


Our Darkest Days is a fast Canadian melodic/skatepunk band formed in Quebec City in 2012, by former members and old friends, singer Vince Fournier, guitarist Dann Greene, guitarist Russ Almond and drummer Matt Leclerc. Bassist Jam Gosselin joined few months later. Most of the members have been around playing punk rock fury for about 20 years, and still keep their flame as strong as always. After years of work, Matt Leclerc has been replaced by new drummer Guillaume Fortin in 2015 who increased the songs speed, and Russ replaced by Claude Plamondon who left in 2016. The line up was finally completed by the missing piece of the puzzle John Leblanc, who joined later in the same year. After two years filled with shows, tours and festivals, John left the band in 2018 to be replaced by our lifelong bro Sebastien Ladouceur. His touch will bring lots of shreds and melodies to the guitar parts. Then, soon after in middle 2019, the roads were broken between Guillaume and ODD. They turned to old pal and excellent drummer Sean Connors to complete the quintet. Following his arrival, the songs became faster … what a coincidence!
By working and playing with music, they defined a unique and original sound that would stand apart among any other bands. However, they’ve been influenced a lot by 90’s punk rock bands such as Ignite, Propagandhi, Lagwagon, Good Riddance, Strung Out etc. Their first 6 songs demo was released in 2013, followed by a split in Fall 2014 with Set It Back. They played several shows in Eastern Canada.
After two years of live performance, they moved forward to a new writing process and entered studio for their first full length “A Common Agony”, with Fréquences Productions (Pierre Lemire & Michael Fontaine) with mastering done by Daryl Phenneger. The album is fueled with thirteen mindblowing tracks, and a very energic and technical “unleash the beast” sound with fast drums, solid bass and guitar riffs, flawless pickings and solos, powerful and harmonious vocal melodies, many sudden stops, and an instant ear-catching throughout the whole album that leaves you wanting more. “A Common Agony” was released in November 2016 on Bird Attack Records. Two music videos for songs off of that album saw light of day, “The Burden Of My Sins” (ft. Michel Garcia from FORUS) and “Ceaseless”.
Following the release of the album A Common Agony, ODD has performed in over 150 shows in 3 years. Being part of several festivals, several music videos as well as several tours, they returned to the process of composing the second full length in 2019 with their new lineup to deliver an album that is even faster, technical and melodic.
In late 2019, Montreal-based independent record label, Thousand Islands Records, announced the addition of Our Darkest Days to its roster, with the initial details about a new album coming out in 2021 revealed.
