From Vancouver, Canada, ACTORS electrify with a modern take on post-punk. On debut full-length It Will Come to You, anthemic songs evoke the urgency of early-’80s U2 as well as the driving, synth-drenched scores that emanated from that era’s movie screens. As scene authority Post-Punk.com put it, the band conjures “cinematic new-wave… that belongs on a Michael Mann soundtrack.”

“Vancouver’s brilliant post-punk and new-wave quartet ACTORS continue their flair for sonic cinematics… The atmosphere quivers with singer Jason Corbett’s crooning reverb augmented by shivering guitars and stark synths.”
–Post-Punk

“Addictively dancey, uplifting and melancholy sounds… Beautiful, dark music.”
–CVLT Nation

“Eighties-style post-punk… Marrying influences from metal in the post-punk style.”
