“I’m very excited to finally have this album out for everyone to hear—sorry for the wait! I really think that many of our fans will like this album. It has been a journey lasting several years now, and I wrote a lot of the songs on this album based on the challenges I’ve faced as someone with an ambition to be an artist and play music for a living; and also how that affects different relationships you have with different people. To all our fans, I hope this album can help you do something you’re scared of, like it has for me. If you have any doubts or think other people don’t believe you can be something more, please don’t let that stop you! It’s always been up to you.” – John Norbert Aquino

Minority 905 is a Canadian pop-punk / pop-rock band. The band was formed in August 2013 by vocalist/guitarist John Aquino and currently also consists of Spasimir Vasilev (drums), Steven Wolwyn (bass/backing vocals), and Chris Goodfellow (lead guitar/backing vocals). The name was inspired by Green Day’s song “Minority” and Aquino’s hometown of Mississauga, ON, Canada (its area code is 905). Aquino identified with the word “Minority” because it embraced individuality and accepting one’s self. The band has released 2 studio albums and 1 EP.

In 2015 after recording their debut album Broken, Not Beaten the band decided to start posting weekly videos on YouTube. Shortly afterwards they posted their hit Green Day Medley video which kickstarted the channel’s growth. Following the success of the Green Day Medley the band decided to focus more on making weekly covers and posting medleys while at the same time writing new music and playing shows around Toronto.

Minority905-10

Minority 905 is a pop-punk band founded by then-17-year-old John Aquinoand former members of the band in August 2013. The name was inspired by Green Day’s song “Minority” and Aquino’s hometown of Mississauga, ON, Canada (its area code is 905). Aquino identified with the word “Minority” since he believed that the combination of his ethnicity, personality, and interests were rare in the punk rock scene.

Aquino met former member Aidan Collins on YouTube, after Collins saw a few of Aquino’s covers and contacted him. However, he did not join the band until early 2014 when the band needed a bassist. Collins joined and became the new bassist.

Throughout the next few months, Minority 905 played as much as they could, wherever possible–birthday parties, house parties, local bars, and local venues. Eventually, they were noticed by local producer, Mason Dayot at a show they played in Brampton–which was also the last show the former drummer played. Without an official drummer, Minority 905 went on to record their debut EP titled Luck Is For Losers with Dayot, who played the drums for the record.

Soon after the record released, current drummer Spasimir Vasilev joined Minority 905. Vasilev met the members at a previous show where he volunteered to sing “Blitzkrieg Bop” (The Ramones) with Minority 905. Once again, the band played many local shows and even opened for the bands Such Gold and Transit. In December 2014, they went on a weekend mini-tour with local bands Setback and Triumph Over Adversity.

In 2015, the lead guitarist left the band and Collins opted to start playing lead guitar instead of the bass. Current bassist Steven Wolwyn joined soon afterwards. The band closely worked with Dayot throughout the songwriting process during the early months of 2015 in preparation for the next record, which would be their first full-length album.

In July 2015, Collins left the band due to his family moving out of the city, and Dayot then decided he was going to take over guitar duties; as well as continue to be the main man to produce Minority 905’s album Broken, Not Beaten”

In March 2016, Mason left the band to pursue teaching English in Japan, and current guitarist, Chris Goodfellow joined the band in July 2016.

JUST 6 HOURS Release Official Lyric Video for “One Way Doors” Off of ‘SOBER’ EP

New Jersey based alternative rock band JUST 6 HOURS has released the official lyric video for their single, “One Way Doors,” off of their sophomore EP, Sober, which is out NOW via Moto Records.

“‘One Way Doors’ is a song about drug use and not being able to become sober, like going through a door and not being able to open it back up, hence the title, ‘One Way Doors.’ The lyrics use quotes from real drug addicts – Just 6 Hours

Player

Early Praise for Sober

“Jersey Shore-based Just 6 Hours’ forthcoming sophomore EP, Sober, finds the young band maturing with an angst-filled, metal-rooted, punk-fueled sound that will please fans of both Tool and Black Sabbath. Among the standout tracks is “One Way Doors,” which features such an emotional vocal delivery by singer-rhythm guitarist, Seth Barnett, it almost seems as if he is mistakenly trapped in hell and can’t get out. A blend of metal and blues guitar by Nick Marrotta adds to the intensity and integrity of the track.” – The Aquarian.

Track List
1. Ashes
2. Patrick
3. Pity Me
4. One Way Doors
5. Dan
6. Number Man

Since that first show at The Saint, Just 6 Hours has performed at major venues across NJ including The Brighton BarThe House of IndependentsThe Wonder BarThe Stone PonyDingbatz, and Boontunes. In May 2018, Just 6 Hours was named Jersey Rock Band of the Week by WRAT 95.9 FM and in April 2018 played a live set on WMCX 88.9 FM.

Borne from musical influences that include NirvanaGreen DayYellowcardPierce the VeilBlack SabbathMetallica, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Just 6 Hours sound is a combination of powerful rhythms supporting aggressive guitar drive melodies with lyrics that are thoughtful and emotional. As an original member of the Moto Records community, Just 6 Hours released their second EP, Sober, in March 2018 to rave reviews. Their first EP, H.O.P.E., was released in early 2017.

I spend 8-9 hours a day with these jerks and it absolutely contributes to how tight our live shows are. I know what James is going to do before James even knows he’s gonna do it.”

The band most recently announced the release of their long awaited follow up EP, TRYING TIMES with the unveiling of a colorful and irreverent music video for the track “COUNT ME OUT.”

The band’s mission is simple: to bring back ROCK! And while that’s a mission a lot of emerging artists are taking on, it’s one that this quartet is uniquely suited to addressing.
