VIDEO FOR CURRENT TOP 40 SINGLE “HIGHER THAN THE DRUGS” CLOSING IN ON 50K VIEWS
Toronto, ON (June 26, 2020) — Today, Toronto alt rockers, Stuck On Planet Earth release their long-awaited debut album”Beautiful Nowhere,” via Anthem Records/Anthem Entertainment.
The Toronto-based trio, comprised of Adam Bianchi (guitars/vocals), Al Capo (bass/vocals), and Andrew Testa (drums) had already delivered two tracks from the album, including “Ghosts On The Radio” – which they say is an “homage to some of our biggest musical inspirations”, delivering “a bass line that has Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ vibe and bright guitar sounds channeling The Police’s Andy Summers” – and their current Top 40 single “Higher Than The Drugs”, whose official video premiered exclusively on ETCanada.com earlier this year and is now closing in on 50k views.
“We cannot wait for ‘Beautiful Nowhere’ to be released into the world,” shares the group who have been playing together since 2007 while growing up in Vaughan. “The album really encapsulates the culmination of feelings and emotions over the last few years of our lives. It deals with the themes of love, lust, loss, self-identity, perseverance and empowerment – and it’s our lens into the world.”

“To us, ‘Beautiful Nowhere’ is the idea that we all want to know what’s beyond this place, especially with the chaotic, anxiety ridden backdrop of the current times, while projecting the notion that we’re all stuck here, and in this together,’’ says the band.
Stuck On Planet Earth are known for their primal, high-energy live shows and a signature mix of alternative rock and R&B. They are a well-honed upbeat alt rock trio blending an edgy yet accessible sound with catchy melodies, and flawless harmony vocals. Their energetic songs get you going with a decent blend of Canadian 80s alt-pop with ‘Edge-y’ guitar, a little R&B, and the current day catchy cool vibes of bands like Foals and Arkells.
Since forming the band as teenagers in 2007, Stuck On Planet Earth say they have “developed their sound over thousands of hours of playing together on stage and in the studio.”
It has been a multi-step process for the band as their music debuted on the Canadian iTunes Alternative and Canadian Rock/Alternative charts, before gaining airplay at SiriusXM’s The Verge, Aux TV, CBC, 102.1 The Edge and more.
Stuck On Planet Earth has shared the stage with notable acts such as Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts, Finger Eleven, Weezer, and Motörhead and were direct support for MOIST on their “Silver” 25th anniversary tour in 2019.
This past February the group performed a SOLD OUT show at The Drake in Toronto, and are currently delivering their “Stuck Inside” IG Live series via Instagram, including an exclusive livestream of “Beautiful Nowhere,” which happened last night as a special treat for fans.
This may be their debut album but Stuck On Planet Earth is a band with staying power. It will grab you from the first notes of “I Want It Now’ and hold you in until the “record stops” so to speak. They have honed their sound over more than a decade playing together and the result is a record you can listen to over and over again. Now on a major label you can assuredly expect to hear a lot more from these quality alt-rock songcrafters.
