“The Commoners find common ground in the classic rock of Free and Led Zeppelin, and the Southern flavourings of Black Crowes and Blackberry Smoke.” – R’N’R Magazine

“The Commoners bring their own brand of southern rock n’ roll swagger.”
– 
Rock and Blues Muse

“The Commoners produce sounds of exceptionality, 

effectiveness, and very high-quality craftsmanship.”

Following the success of their previous four singles “Devil Teasin’ Me,” “The Way I Am,” “Too Soon To Know You,” and “See You Again”, Canadian roots and rock band The Commoners are pleased to announce the Friday 10th May release of “Gone Without Warning” – the fifth single taken from their highly anticipated third studio album, Restless.

Released by Gypsy Soul Records on Friday 5th July 2024Restless is available to pre-order at www.thecommoners.ca/store.

From today, “Gone Without Warning” is available on all major streaming platforms and promises to be a heartfelt celebration to The Commoners’ ever-evolving musical journey.

The single is available on all streaming platforms HERE. The single is also available to stream on YouTube HERE.

A gritty riff puts fire under “Gone Without Warning“, launching The Commoners into a track that boils over with tension. Featuring a heavy hitting chorus with soulful backing vocals by Chantal Williams, the track is further elevated by the combined backing vocals of bassist Ben Spiller and drummer Adam Cannon.

Combined with Ross Hayes Citrullo’s infectious guitar riffs, the “Gone Without Warning” delivers quality and distinction. It’s the perfect follow-up to the previous singles, “Devil Teasin’ Me” and “The Way I Am.” “Devil Teasin’ Me” proved a popular staple on UK rock radio, with a 10-week run and over 100 spins on Planet Rock.

Having wrapped up a bustling 2023 filled with recording sessions and a UK tour alongside Grammy-nominated duo Samantha Fish and Jesse Dayton, The Commoners have solidified their position as a must-watch act.

The release of Restless will mark the quintet’s return to the road in 2024, with numerous festivals in the UK and EU, including Made of Stone, Steelhouse, and Moulin Blues Festivals, already scheduled for this summer. From the speakers to the stage, one thing is certain: The Commoners are spearheading a party rock renaissance, and the audience is cordially invited

A natural evolution from their 2022 album Find A Better Way, the forthcoming album Restless offers a peek behind the curtain of success, revealing the gruelling routines and ragged emotions that hide behind the glamorous aesthetic of a rock band on the rise. With introspective, slower-tempo numbers pocketed amongst rip-roaring anthems, the new album, recorded at RHC Music, Toronto, is a portrait of a hardworking group revitalizing a classic genre.

“As with our previous album, we wanted to marry old and new southern rock together in a way that was unique to the band’s Canadian roots,” says the Commoners guitarist and producer Ross Hayes Citrullo. “By adding the soul and rock elements of The Black Crowes, and the southern blues rock undertones of The Allman Brothers to a production style akin to Blackberry Smoke and Rival Sons, I think we developed an authentic sound that compares sonically to some of our favourite records across all of those music genres.”
