cleopatrick is a heavy alt-rock duo from the tiny town of Cobourg, Ontario - yup, the ‘c’ is lowercase.

Best friends since kindergarten, frontman Luke Gruntz and drummer Ian Fraser have an enviable connection that translates into a powerfully unified expression of sound. With a bastardized bass amp and split signal, Gruntz simultaneously commands the range of bass and guitar topped with provocative blues grooves and take-down breakdowns.

In early 2016, the pair recorded their first EP 14 in its entirety in a single studio session and was later dubbed one of the most promising acts for 2017 by 94.9 The Rock’s “Generation Next” program.

Now piling all of the torment and rhetoric of chasing big dreams within the limits of a small town, cleopatrick’s brand new single “hometown” gives a tasteful hint of growth and raw revelation expressed in their upcoming sophomore EP the boys (Fall 2018).

Tastefully Filthy. Born of busted knuckles and late night drives in beater cars, White Lighter is an eclectic amalgamation of Old and New. Traces of Americana, Blues, and Hard Rock meld with the influences of our hometown of Oakland, California to create a sound unlike any other.
Cities You Wish You Were From
Cities You Wish You Were From
Cities You Wish You Were From is a rabble-rouser of a band. Energetic and bigger than life, Cities likes to try to straddle all the lines: the line between blues and rock, the line between soul and country, the line between precise and gnarled. Cities makes music for the working-class. They make the most sense in California biker bars, New Orleans blues-boxes, and Oklahoma vet halls. Their sound is far larger than what two men should be capable of. This is a combination of technology, trickery, several amps doing several different things, and their 6'5" drummer.

Most of all, Cities is a touring band: they are most comfortable on the road. They play between 80-120 shows a year, limited only by time spent on recording new material to then take back on the road. Cities likes beer, Son House, Hagstrom guitars, DW drums and the inside of their van. But most of all, they love their fans.
Cities You Wish You Were from is sponsored by A Little Thunder Pick-Ups. We play Fender, Hagstrom and Airline guitars, Egnater guitar amps, Aguilar bass amps, and DW drums. We tour in a ‘99 Toyota Sienna.
