Toronto based garage punk psych rockers, Wine Lips hit the stage for the first
time in the fall of 2015. Initially a part time project between songwriter/guitar
player, Cam Hilborn and drummer Aurora Evans, the band began playing clubs in
Toronto, stretching organically to surrounding Ontario cities, and then Quebec.
Wine Lips released their self-titled debut LP on indie label Fried Records in 2017
and set out on their first 5-province tour east to Halifax, and haven’t looked back
since. After an appearance in Quebec City, the band was approached with regard
to touring overseas. That chance meeting resulted in an April 2018 tour of Hong
Kong and China, where they were received by enthusiastic audiences.
Never letting the dust settle, the band released their follow up LP “Stressor” in
March 2019 and toured North America relentlessly until early 2020. The release of
Stressor along with endless tour dates earned the band a new following and saw
some of the albums tracks featured on television and Netflix.
The band spent most of their free time in 2020 writing and recording their third full
length record “Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party” at The Sugar Shack in
London, Ontario with Simon Larochette.
“The record is crazy, I really spent a lot of time getting the songs to sound the way
I was hearing it in my head. I think this is the best stuff we’ve recorded and I
couldn’t be happier with the end result!” - Cam
Wine Lips consists of Cam Hilborn on Guitar and Vocals with Aurora Evans on
Drums and Charlie Weare on Bass.
“Fuzzy, loud and fast, Wine Lips are a garage/ punk/ psychedelic band whose
music feels like a shot of adrenaline to the heart. A no holds barred kind of rock n
roll that’ll make you want to buy a motorcycle, just to crash it.” – Sled Island
“This new song is a garage-punk sugar rush.”
– Brooklyn Vegan
"It's pure adrenaline, it's noise, it's intense, it's refreshing, and it feels life-giving. The garage-psych band's new album is, for all intents and purposes, pretty fucking crazy."
“The song—off the upcoming full-length Mushroom Death Sex Bummer Party—is double-time, turbo-snotty garage rock slimed in gloriously vintage reverb. And, if possible, the video is even greater—a testimony to the power of setting up in a room, turning on the cameras, and then having at ’er.
” – Georgia Strait
