Since their explosive entrance onto the music scene in 2008 at the International Emergenza battle of the bands, Third Place has carved a niche for themselves in the rock world. Celebrating their first anniversary with a remarkable 8th place finish among 250 artists at Montreal's legendary Medley concert hall, they've only ascended from there, securing a 6th place the following year. It was on these stages that Third Place discovered their true calling: live performance.
With a sound that's both compelling and unique, Third Place has consistently captivated audiences. Their self-produced demo, Keep Your Dream Alive (2008), marked the beginning of a rapidly growing fan base, fueled further by their first single, "Look At Me Now," which climbed to the 66th spot in the Top 100 Palmares Correspondant Anglophone in 2009. Their presence on MusiquePlus and MuchLoud, through music videos for "Look At Me Now" & "Feel The Beat," solidified their rising star status.
2010's Lifeland album, selling over 4,000 copies, showcased Third Place's evolving artistry and knack for electrifying performances. Their success in competitions like Clictonband, Musiqualité, and Ernie Ball’s Warped Tour paved the way for shared stages with icons like All Time Low and Shinedown.
A pivotal moment came in 2011 with a record deal from "Let Artists Be (L-A be)" and nationwide distribution through "Select distribution," leading to a re-release of Lifeland with new tracks, including a cover of The Supremes' "You Can’t Hurry Love."
Touring Ontario and Quebec in 2013-14, Third Place surpassed 350 live shows, a testament to their relentless drive and presence in the music scene. Their dedication to evolving their sound was evident in 2015's "theatrical rock" EP, Rise of Chaos, produced with Luc Tellier.
The band's North American tour from 2016 to 2018, spanning from Quebec to California, was a mission to share their new material, culminating in winning the Rockalypse music contest in 2019 and embarking on their first Italian tour, including a performance at the Subiaco Rock & Blues Festival.
As Third Place gears up to release a new music video and eagerly anticipates their EP in 2024, their journey is a testament to their unwavering passion for music and determination to leave an indelible mark on the rock landscape.
