Dig It Up
Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Since 2008, Dig It Up has been turning strangers into best friends, dead cities into great adventures and created thousands of memories (some good, some not so good) of the shit show we like to call DIG IT UP.
DIG IT UP is made up of a bunch of old friends who value the good times, all the while trying to ensure that they put out interesting, engaging and hard hitting music. This band has always been about "what can we get away with next?", a mentality of keeping the party going, expanding on their experiences together and trying to get the entire world to head bang with them. Since the first practice in a basement until their last show together, they will always strive to bring out the "I'm going to have a crazy night!" in everyone, the band included.
With only a few releases under their belts (EP, split 7") Dig It Up has been fortunate enough to tour in the US and Canada alongside friends like 7 Seconds, A Wilhelm Scream, Frank Turner, None More Black and The Sainte Catherines. In addition, they were invited to perform at both FEST 8 and FEST 10 in Gainesville, Florida. In 2012, Alternative Press featured them in their annual 100 bands you need to know issue. Deciding that it was time to record a proper release, the boys enlisted the help of producers Jon Drew (Fucked Up, Alexisonfire) and Marc-Andre Beaudet (The Sainte Catherines) to help make said record. After pulling some levers and turning a bunch of knobs and then bleeding and sweating all over those knobs and levers, Dig It Upâ€™s first album, Manners, is the masterful result of that incredibly intense session.
