About basement superheroes
Basement Superheroes is a Canadian pop rock band formed in Laval, Quebec by Max Izzo (vocals, guitar) and younger brother Alex Izzo (drums and vocals) who were soon joined by Shawn Chemtov (bass guitar). The band initially started by playing high schools and small club dates, playing punk, they later leaned towards a new brand of pop that has defined their sound today. The band..s creative writing axis are the two Izzo brothers. Brought up by artistic parents, the mom an accomplished painter, the dad a record producer, the boys were performing as a duo as early as grade school, needing to be chaperoned in order to play club dates.
When Max Izzo befriended Shawn Chemtov in high school and found that they shared the same drive and interest in music, things started to move quickly. Shawn was the driving force the brothers needed to move ahead. Single-handedly spearheading a campaign to transform the young basement band into a serious unit, he instilled discipline and rigor by going after every contest, battle of the band and event that could help bring the band into prominence. In the winter of 2008, the band's song Blink and You'll Miss It was a finalist at Montreal's Virgin Radio songwriting contest. The following year the band entered a competition called CAN YOUR SCHOOL ROCK, (which was a contest that scouted the top high school bands) and after competing with 40 bands, in June of 2009, they were crowned winners representing Laval Liberty High School of the first ever "Can Your School Rock" competition. This brought about the recording of the bands debut album. www.canyourschoolrock.com
