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,”

Yes the MuchMusic Video Awards was a few weeks ago, but we aren’t done with our footage. You may not know this but at every major awards show, there is always a gift lounge for the VIPs, and andPOP had a look at the MMVA Gift Lounge for 2009.
