It has been 18 years since Canada’s Much Music’s Fan Favourite Band of the Year and hosts of the 2000 Juno Awards released any new music, but that’s all about to change!
On January 10th, 2018, The Moffatts will release the first single from their new 6 song EP of the same name “Secrets.” The single will have a world premiere on EasyFM, 6:15 pm Manila. People can stream at https://eazyfm.becteroradio.com.
The EP will follow in the footsteps of past Moffatt records featuring powerful harmonies, infectious rhythmic melodies, and great guitar licks. The EP was recorded and produced by The Moffatts, and the brothers were writers on all songs. The EP will be distributed by BEC TERO MUSIC, a SONY MUSIC affiliate out of Bangkok Thailand.
The Moffatts consists of four brothers: Bob Moffatt – Drums, Programming, and Vocals, Clint Moffatt – Bass, Acoustic Guitar, and Vocals, Dave Moffatt – Keyboards, and Vocals, and Scott Moffatt – Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar, Programming, and Vocals.
Back in the late 90’s, The Moffatts were EMI Music’s #1 International Priority, and toured the world extensively where they sold in excess of 7 million albums and were presented with Gold and Platinum records in 32 countries, which included going 10X’s platinum in The Philippines. Their last album, Submodalities, featured the #1 hit Bang Bang Boom, which at the time was the fastest #1 single in Canadian music history.
The Moffatts signed their first record deal in 1994, and at the time they became the youngest band to ever sign a major label recording contract. Label mates were none other than Shania Twain, and Toby Keith. In 1997, The Moffatts changed genre and signed a new deal with EMI Electrola out of Cologne, Germany.
Although The Moffatts were not performing as a band from 2000 to 2018, it doesn’t mean that they had hung up their instruments. Scott was the producer that broke Slot Machine, Thailand’s most successful international Pop/Rock band, and won producer of the year. Currently, Scott produces country music Super-Star Luke Combs. Bob and Clint released a number of projects under various names. Same Same featured the biggest selling international album of the year throughout S.E. Asia in 2006 with the #1 hit ‘Love Isn’t.’ Like Strangers had a top 20 hit with ‘Goodbye Baby’ in 2014, and Endless Summer’s hit ‘Amen for Women’ reached #1 on Spotify Canada charts in 2016. When The Moffatts disbanded, Dave chose a completely new direction, pursuing the spiritual path of Yoga, until mid-2017 when he chose to return to the world of music and joined his brothers to record this new record and write songs within Nashville’s prestigious A circle.
The Moffatts will begin touring in late April of 2018.
