The Toronto-based pop rock band will premiere their new music video and contest for “Sonic Boom” with CanadianBeats.ca on September 4, 2018.
We wrote the title track as that moment in a young person’s life when they throw caution to the wind, and set out on their pie in the sky musical journey—no holds barred, full speed ahead…”
— Jacqueline Auguste, Across The Board

“We wrote the title track as that moment in a young person’s life when they throw caution to the wind, and set out on their pie in the sky musical journey—no holds barred, full speed ahead, with all the dedication, determination and drive of a wide-eyed kid,” says lead-singer and principle songwriter, Jacqueline Auguste. “We pictured the listener’s journey through the album like a piece of musical theatre—with a story, a heroine, and the trials and tribulations of a musical climax and anticlimax”, says Auguste.
