NOW Toronto’s Best of 2015

Hey Folks,

Though I don’t usually feel comfortable posting about nominations (seems a bit narcissistic) I’m quite proud of these ones so here goes. The DGA are up for best band this year in the Now reader’s poll. And I’m up for best Songwriter and best male singer. Feel free to vote for Hayden, but I’d prefer if you voted for me.

Lowest of the Low fans… we’ll see you all this summer at various shows in Toronto and Stateside.

DGA fans look for us in your home town and at the Turf Festival in Toronto. We are also launching into recording our next album in November.

Cheers everyone,
Ron Hawkins

Announcement

-Perhaps it’s because it ends in a 13, but this year has seen some unusual and unfortunate events. For instance-

After 22 years of rock n’ roll co-conspiracy, commitment and comradery Stephen Stanley has decided to leave the Lowest of the Low.

We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Just like our friends the endotherms, it’s time to begin waking up and thinking about making some noise.
