Formed in the early 90s while all members were attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Big Wreck saw early success when their debut album, 1997’s “In Loving Memory Of…”, garnered the band three Top 10 singles (“The Oaf,” “That Song,” and “Blown Wide Open”), and a double Platinum certification. Disbanding shortly after the release of their sophomore record “The Pleasure and the Greed”, Big Wreck reunited in 2012 after a decade long hiatus with the release of “Albatross”, which debuted at #5 on the Top 200 SoundScan chart in Canada (their highest debut to date) and hit #25 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart.
The title-track from “Albatross” earned Big Wreck the status of being the first Canadian band to hit #1 on the Canadian Rock Radio chart in over a year, a position they went on to maintain for six weeks. “Albatross” received a 2013 JUNO Award nomination for “Rock Album of the Year” and earned the band another three Top 10 Canadian Rock Radio singles. Their 2014 follow-up “Ghosts” debuted at #5 on the Canadian Albums Chart and #4 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart and was Big Wreck’s second JUNO nominated album for “Rock Album of the Year” in 2015.
Big Wreck is Ian Thornley (Vocals, Guitar), Chuck Keeping (Drums), Dave McMillan (Bass), Paulo Neta (Guitar), and Brian Doherty (Guitar).
