TORONTO, ON, CANADA, January 21, 2019 — Canadian rock band Across The Board releases No Curtain Call, their third and final single and music video off of their latest award-winning album, Sonic Boom. The album chronicles the journey of a small-town girl dreaming of bringing her music to the big city.
Written by front-woman Jacqueline Auguste and produced by MC2 Music Media, No Curtain Call describes the point in a musician’s career when no one seems to be listening, watching or paying any attention to their music; when a musician is faced with the question, “Who am I really doing this for?”
“No Curtain Call fits into the Sonic Boom rock opera story as the point in our heroine’s journey when she realizes the music she writes and performs may not appeal to everyone,” comments Auguste. “She has to come from an authentic place in her own heart where she can feel confident that she has expressed her own truth in her lyrics and music.”
With over 600 YouTube videos, three albums and sold-out shows across the country, Across The Board has gained a global following. The recipient of several independent music awards and nominations including two gold medal Global Music Awards, four Josie Music Award nominations, an Indie Music Hall of Fame award and a Radio Music Award for Best Rock Song, Across The Board has immense online and terrestrial radio airplay, even reaching #4 on the Canadian iTunes Rock Charts with the title track of their album, Sonic Boom. Their videos have been selected for major film festivals including Indie Best Films Festival and Alternative Film Festival.
Across The Board is currently in studio recording their fourth full length album, slated for release in March 2019.
