My Own Addiction’s new single “How The Story Goes” is right in line with this exciting new rock band’s guitar-driven, high-energy sound. This time around, they added the cello — an unusual instrument for the genre, while the band was inspired by Metallica’s use of the cello in some of their songs.
My Own Addiction is a mainstream rock band out of Oshawa, Canada. The four-piece band formed in the late summer of 2022, and they wasted no time getting into the studio to record their full LP that same year. The band is composed of Andrew Losier on guitar, Todd Burrows on drums, Tim Reesor on bass, and fronted by Alexandra Augustine on vocals (she is also known as an actor). These four musicians are driven by their passion for performing music that combines high-energy classic rock with hard blues undertones and a sprinkle of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts.
Their new single “How The Story Goes” was written and rewritten a few times, Alexandra says. “I really like storytelling in my lyrics, but I truly had no idea what story to tell when I wrote this song. [It] was the bane of my existence for, like, three weeks, which in hindsight seems like a short amount of time—but I was wrestling with it. I guess that’s how the story goes! Anyway, it’s probably one of my most honest songs, and I leave it to you as a listener to find what it means for you.”
Having opened for rock legends Buckcherry this past summer, and supporting Anvil in the fall, audiences can expect high energy driven rock ’n roll that compels you to move and encourages you to let loose and rock out.
