Childsplay, a young Vancouver Punk Band, are performing this Fall across BC and Alberta with their “NEXT GENERATION TOUR” and coming to Houston Secondary!
Hitting cities and towns with a message to youth that…”It’s up to us….the next generation“…Childsplay talks about bullying, taking a stand, being aware of the current issues and what the next generation needs to do to make a difference.
Upbeat and positive, this tour rocks! Completely youth focused, sponsors include some of the biggest names in skate and long boarding. Industry schools across Canada that focus in careers within the music industry like recording, engineering and everything behind the scenes make up the onsite career centered booth. Companies like Long and Mcquade and AXE Music provide the up and coming young artist with an array of options for instruments and lessons.
Childsplay is also working directly with Pink Shirt Day to bring awareness to bullying and for the past 2 years the “bullying sucks!” theme has been the main focus of the Canada wide tour.
As a band, Childsplay is very active in addressing many issues that make up today’s complex world through their music. This is especially true for today’s youth that will be inheriting the many global concerns over the next few years, and for the next generation, that won’t be an easy task. Reviews of their latest EP “Righteous Rampage” have been extremely positive and coming from across Canada and the USA and as far away as the UK and Germany.
The ongoing tour has been very successful, performing to pack venues and headlining community events.
