CONTRIVED is a 5 piece rock band with principal members from JUNO AWARD winners WINTERSLEEP and JUNO / POLARIS nominees HOLY FUCK. Their latest project has led them into a sound direction incorporating their hard rock roots and expanding on their pop sensibilities. Contived recorded their third full-length album blank, blank, blank at Sonic Temple Studios in Halifax. Lending a hand at the mix is Dave Newfeld (Broken Social Scene, Super Furry Animals).

    Originally formed in Halifax, CONTRIVED quickly built a loyal following based on the talents evident on their self-produced debut Pursuit of Plots (2002) and their sold out live performances. The ultra-limited Starshine EP (200 pressings) sold out as quickly as they could be produced before a second Dead Air Verbatim was recorded with Andy Magoffin (Two Minute Miracles) in 2005. The band then embarked on an Exclaim! sponsored Cross-Canada tour with Dependent Music label mates Wintersleep, Holy Fuck and Jill Barber before concentrating on their other musical commitments.
