Daggermouth invades the stage after a long absence, and for all the right reasons.

Pop-punkers return from a decade-long hiatus to finish their story

VANCOUVER – Pop-punk band Daggermouth are back and ready to reclaim what’s theirs. Forming in 2004, they released two albums—Stallone and Turf Wars—which, alongside their catchy songwriting melodies and energetic live performances, garnered the group a loyal fanbase. With full momentum, Daggermouth were taken on tour with punk-rock heavyweights such as SNFU and Moneen. The band’s strong four-year tenure came to an inconclusive end in 2008.

“Why did we take a break? That is a hard question to answer,” claims Dan Donald, the hard-hitting drummer of Daggermouth. “The band toured full-time for a few years, and that takes a toll on people personally, mentally, and physically,” he explains. “We got back together because at the end of the day, we are all close friends; we loved making sweet, sweet music and hanging out. We want to finish off the Daggermouth story with a happy ending as opposed to an unfinished one. Cheesy and cliché? Perhaps, but there you have it.”

While on hiatus, the band members have remained busy bees. “Guitar-vocalist Stuart McKillop has become a master behind the mixing board, and guitarist Kenny Lush is almost the new Ultimate Warrior. We have all dabbled in a few other bands such as Youth Decay, Elder Abuse, The Grace Life, and quite a few more in that time. One of us might have even gotten a degree.”

In terms of being in a band in 2017, Donald has face-smacking advice for young musicians: “First off, do this because you want to. Don’t do it to impress, for the money, or any other bullshit reason. Anyone that thinks making music will bring them in the green is drunk at the wheel. They were 10 years ago, and they are probably even drunker now.” Donald continues, “Another big one is cut the entitled crap—no one owes you a thing. Practice and cut the attitude. Traveling the world with your best friends can be the best and, at times, the hardest thing you can do, but the experience is priceless.”

For those who have yet to see Daggermouth rock the stage, you can expect the following: “Daggermouth is going to do what Daggermouth has always done: play fast as hell, play loud and have fun. Throw a sense of humour in there and we are good to go.”

Daggermouth plays May 12 at the Cobalt.
