A staple of the Toronto scene for close to ten years, The Anti-Queens are an ultra hard-working, punked up rock n' roll quartet of super high-powered women poised to take over the world. They've become infamous in their hometown of Toronto for their insanely high-energy, take-no-prisoner live performances influenced by the Blackhearts, The Runaways, L7 and the Distillers.
They have toured the US east coast extensively, played all over Canada including some critically acclaimed sets at NXNE, Indie Week, Canadian Music Week, Pouzza Fest, 77 MTL, Montebello Rockfest and a bunch more. They've shared the stage with awesome bands like Michael Graves, Die Mannequin, the Planet Smashers and have collaborations with Sarah Blackwood (Walk Off The Earth).
The band has previously self-released two stellar EPs (Grow Up/Stay Young and Start Running) and now gearing up for their killer full-length debut on Stomp Records scheduled for Spring 2019 release!
"the band brought the energy and rallied the assemblage with thirty minutes of blistering garage punk fit for any early ’90s college basement show.” - Razorcake
"Their high energy and fun performance is not to be missed" - Canadian Beats
"One of my favorite revelations was the Anti-Queens, a 4 piece all girl band from Toronto. They were a throwback to the golden days of pop punk, reminding me of fellow Canadians Liveonrelease. I always appreciate a band who you can tell is really having fun on stage." - Montreal Rocks
