Aviator Shades’ New Video Asks “Who Do You Think You Are”
January 20 2015
In early 2014 Aviator Shades released the ‘Ready To Blow’ EP, and a year later they have unleashed the music video for the song “Who Do You Think You Are?”
Aviator Shades is the brainchild of singer/bassist Dave Gorman, whose calling to live, eat and breathe rock n’ roll saw him leave his native Ireland for the shores of Western Canada. Performing regularly throughout Vancouver’s rock scene with a revolving cast of talented (albeit temporary) musicians, Gorman became hellbent on assembling the ultimate army of rock soldiers.
Enter guitarists George Baker and Shaun Michael Thackeray. Having only met when Gorman brought them together, they became instant friends and found an undeniable (perhaps eerie) chemistry together; swapping leads and harmonizing in the spirit of their rock guitar heroes. The addition of Kamloops based rocker Spencer Tomlinson, whose hard hitting drumming melded beautifully with Gorman’s thundering bass lines, completed the essential Aviator Shades line-up.
Aviator Shades spent much of 2013 crafting new material with Default drummer-turned-producer Danny Craig (One Bad Son, Fighting For Ithica). With their songwriting and performance skills pushed to new heights, the band crafted a six song EP which greatly surpassed their own heightened expectations.
‘Ready To Blow’ was released in early 2014 to acclaim and excitement, allowing Aviator Shades to expand their audience throughout Western Canada. Summer touring and festival highlights included performing alongside April Wine, Monster Truck, and seminal punk legends Dayglo Abortions.
