FIRST RELEASE SINCE THE LONGEST LONESOME LP
Hamilton-based rock quintet Rarity make their return to the Canadian punk scene with “Leave It Alone,” the band’s first new single since the 2019 full-length, The Longest Lonesome (New Damage Records). Exclusive “Leave It Alone” merch is also available now via the New Damage store.
“Leave It Alone” is a testament to the band of longtime friends who came together to have fun and write one of their most exciting tracks. The lyrics came together in one night, a story put together from ideas jotted down in the Notes app. While touring has been put on hold due to the pandemic, the Rarity camp are eager for that green light – the go-ahead – ready for that first night they get to rip “Leave It Alone” live for everyone.
Starting off quickly in 2014 with their debut Alive In Your Eyes EP (Rise Records), Rarity hit the road. They then went right back into the studio with Derek Henderson (Knuckle Puck, Real Friends) and Derek Discanio (State Champs) to churn out their first LP, I Couldn’t Be Weaker.
After a tough couple of years, armed with lessons learned, a newly-cemented lineup and an explosive second LP, The Longest Lonesome, the heralded post-hardcore quintet has a fresh lease on life. Touring with the likes of Silverstein, State Champs, Emarosa, Vanna, and more, Rarity quickly developed a devoted fanbase and are ready to take on the world.
