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,”
