For many years and no lineup changes, the Anything August made a name for themselves across Western Canada. In early 2006 they won the University of Northern British Columbia’s Battle of the Bands (a testament to their energetic live show, one which won them countless fans across the province) and were featured guests at the Virgin Rock Music Competition in Calgary, Alberta. They also shared the stage with bands such as Marianas Trench (604 Records) and Faber Drive (Universal Records) and toured across British Columbia and Alberta.
In October of 2006 the band received a grant from VideoFACT, a foundation to assist Canadian talent, for $20,000 to film a music video for their song ‘Last Minute’. The video was directed by award winning Stephano Barberis of Arkadia Pictures Inc. and was filmed in Vancouver BC. “You can’t go wrong with these guys,” Barberis said, “They’ve got the songwriting talent, the musicianship, the perfect look, and the right attitude.” The video hit MuchMusic hard, receiving Medium Rotation and reaching #1 on the Razer Countdown for four consecutive weeks.
The band has since parted ways.Back To Projects
