“Toronto should be proud of these up-and-comers.”

- Alt Press -

Based in Toronto ON, Alt-Punk/Post-Hardcore four-piece, ​Napoleon,​ has been attracting attention from fans and media alike since their formation in early 2018.

Celebrated as one of ‘23 Canadian bands Silverstein's Shane Told knows will keep the scene alive’ in an article by Alternative Press where the famed vocalist filled the publication in on what he feels is the best of the best in Canadian music, the band’s praises are sung far and wide. Alt-Press went on to call the band “heavy in an original fashion,” and say that “Toronto should be proud of these up-and-comers.

Known and loved for their high-energy, in-your-face performances that will leave a mark on not only your mind but probably your body too (if you’re doing it right), the band has played alongside acts including Escape The Fate, Single Mothers, Fame On Fire, Indian Handcrafts, Bastardane, Ottto, and more. They have also left their indelible mark on the stages of NXNE, Canadian Music Week, Gusapalooza, No Passage Fest, and are always announcing more gigs. Their distinguished live show is well-known in the Canadian music scene, once described by ​Canadian Beats Magazine (who has also interviewed the band) a​s “loud, sweaty, and completely overwhelming in all of the best ways.” 


Best served live, the band naturally has a lot of energy on stage and make a point to get the crowd involved as much as possible. While you can get a pretty good taste of just how wild it’d be to see them thrash in person by listening to the music, vocalist Jon Elmaleh says that “there is a certain amount of energy that is just not translated onto the record.”


Collaborating within the Canadian music industry is something Napoleon is always thrilled to do and pride themselves in doing often. Since early 2020, the band has been managed by Scott Middleton of Cancer Bats, who has also produced every Napoleon release since ‘20. Other stand out collaborations include; the band’s latest EP “Enemy Within” (2021), which features guest vocals from Shane Told of Silverstein and Corbin Giroux (ex-Rarity), as well as their 2020 single, “Amends,” featuring Luke Bentham of The Dirty Nil.
