Third Place burst onto the music scene in 2008, during the International Emergenza battle of the bands. The band celebrated its ﬁrst anniversary on the night of the Grand Finale at the legendary Medley concert hall in Montreal, ﬁnishing 8th among 250 artists!

Known for its compelling, dynamic, unique sound and bold performance chops, Third Place released a self-produced demo entitled, Keep Your Dream Alive (2008). The circulation of the album resulted in the rapid growth of the band’s fan-base (15 900 devoted fans on Facebook to date).

In 2010, Third Place launched their new album Lifeland, which has sold more than 4000 copies since its release date. Third Place was then noticed in many competitions, winning Clictonband, Musiqualité and Ernie ball’s Warped tour in 2011-12 and got to share the stage with many artists, such as All Time Low, Yellowcard, Shinedown, Pennywise, Puddle of Mudd, Marie-Mai, Nofx and Martin Deschamps.
During the 2011 CMW event, Third Place met a lot of new contacts in the music industry. In 2012, they then signed a record deal with the label ”Let Artists Be (L-A be)” and got distributed with ”Select distribution”. The record company offered to relaunch Lifeland adding two songs including a cover of You Can’t Hurry Love, originally recorded by The Supremes.

In 2015, Third Place has worked hard on writing new material and on the evolution of their sound with the producer Luc Tellier! They’ve independently launched this last EP ‘’Rise of Chaos’’ with two videos; Don’t Cry (May 2015) and Temptation (July 2016).
In 2016-17, Third Place looked on promoting their new material widely by doing a coast to coast North American tour going from Quebec, Ontario, New York to California. They are currently looking to release a third video for their song Psycho Show and are constantly writing new and unique material to release a new EP by the end of 2018.
