One Way State comes to the Rockwater

Alt rockers One Way State are getting prepared to play at the Rockwater in Golden.

Alternative-rock band called One Way State is getting set to perform on April 21 at the Rockwater Bar. The band is heading on tour to promote their new CD, The Right Time, which is out on March 16. They recently got a nomination for “Artist To Watch” at the 2012 Edmonton Music Awards.

They will be travelling all over the Western part of Canada between March 16 to April 21 after kicking off with a CD release show at Brixx in Edmonton on Friday, March 16.

The group takes a simple approach to their music which is based on writing and performing great songs. On the band’s Facebook site they explain they are “Pure rock n’ roll with no limitations and no expectations. Yet One Way State still follows their own path, with a straight-shooting, natural-sounding self-titled debut EP, telling tales ranging from awesomeness to inadequacy, backed by a soundtrack laden with crisp melodies, loud guitars, and a thundering rhythm section.”

Some of the musicians who have influenced the group are Radiohead to Foo Fighters, the Red Hot Chili Peppers to Dave Matthews, and home-grown Canadian rock from acts like The Weakerthans, Matthew Good Band, and Sam Roberts.

Front man Cody Mack likens their stage persona to an hour-long, controlled explosion where “No Sweat” means “No Effort.”

The first single, Empires Fall Daily, has enjoyed moderate success on campus radio across Western Canada. They completed three tours of Western Canada from November 2010 through May 2011, including performances at numerous festivals like NewMusicWest and SOSFest in Edmonton.
