Description#2: Originating in Peterborough, Ontario, Back Against the Wall will be appearing at Wylders Music Hall this coming Thursday evening, December 9th. Back Against the Wall draws much of their sound from a mix of music as old as 70's hard rock to today's new music.

What began years ago as a duo playing and writing music, Byron Matthews (guitar) and Alan Stanley (bass) came across vocalist Ryan Harris and the band was born. Playing numerous shows in the Peterborough area since May 2003, the band gained their stage experience and put out their first self-titled EP. In the summer of 2004, they found a steady drummer, Andy Copson and added another guitarist, Ryne Blake.

The band has been playing shows around Central and Southern Ontario with a big focus on the Toronto area, playing at venues such as the Opera House, The Reverb, Healey's and more.

Their style is described as hard-edged rock with heavy riffs, melodic vocals, prominent bass lines with a driving beat. They are currently working on a full length album expected to be completed in the Spring of 2005.
