Abandon All Ships dropped the video for “Infamous,” the long-awaited lead single from their forthcoming album. The song, which was produced by The Spool Factory, includes a mix of fierce vocals from Angelo Aita and a softer touch from Martin Broda. Plus, A-Game adds a hip hop sample in the middle.
The video is very “Toronto,” starting off with shots of the TTC, Aita’s Canadian varsity jacket, the CN Tower, the
Sky Dome Rogers Centre and finally (take a breath) a Blue Jays hat. It’s like a Where’s Waldo of Toronto landmarks.
After hitting The Big Slice Restaurant for pizza, the guys drive around and eventually end up back at home for wine and dinner. Finally, the head to their local barbershop (the photo suggests they’re longtime customers) to get a groom-up. The whole video is like an ode to their hometown.

Putting aside these major differences, the six finalists on “Disband” share one goal: to have their careers launched on the show.
If there’s one band who can understand where the contestants are coming from, it’s Stereos. Last season, they walked away from “Disband” with a record deal from Universal and thousands of fans.
“Living in Edmonton, trying to make it as a band and then coming out to Toronto to do the same thing and try and make it was a grind,” said Stereos bassist Dan Johnson at the season two finale. “So I definitely feel where they’re coming from, the nerves and everything backstage.”
Having just wrapped up a national headlining tour, Johnsnon still can’t believe the success Stereos has experienced in such a short amount of time. “I always told the guys that I would make this happen and that you know, we would do it no matter what. But I don’t think any of us knew to the extent of the amount of singles and albums sold,” he shared. “So it definitely surprises us when we see our album going gold,”
