This is a pop/rock band from Maple Ridge, British Columbia. They are really good (in my opinion)

Take a listen to them here

Singer/guitarist Brandon Lehti brings melody to the madness with pop-infused vocal hooks over hard and heavy riffs. Guitarist Ryan Stead balances out the pop with metal infused riffs and technicality, while bass player Matthew Gendron locks down the low end. Jonny Wiebe, drummer extraordinaire, is the newest member.

The goal of the band is to make music that inspires and connects with their audience in the same way that music has inspired and connected with them. This is especially relevant as Brandon and Ryan both come from broken homes, where music was and still is their means of escaping the turmoil and expressing the emotions that threaten to tear them apart, all while maintaining a positive attitude and a sense of hope. Their hope is that those in similar situations can identify and that Brandon and Ryan's experiences can provide a sense of hope to those in similar situations. It is this raw honesty and emotion that allows them to form such a deep connection with their fans. Brandon's lyrics also range from intensely personal meditations on heartache and loss to more universal themes about who we are, what our place is in the world today and the importance of being aware of the state of the world today. "The ultimate honor would be if someone listens to a Latency song, and is inspired to make a positive change in their life."

With their intense songs creating an unbreakable bond between band and audience, and their massive amounts of talent, the Latency look to be a force for years to come. This release and tour is the first step to a long career.
