Toronto hard rockers UFORIA will be taking their latest EP 'Fight or Flight' across Eastern Canada this coming April and May for a nine city tour across four provinces (ON/QC/NB/NS). The tour is presented by PureGrainaudio.com and will begin on April 25th in Oshawa, ON and wrap up with a performance at the Homegrown Festival on May 6th in Kingston, ON.

UFORIA has been a force in the GTA and southern Ontario over the years. Their third EP was released during July of last year and was produced plus co-written with Finger Eleven drummer Steve Molella. The title track has been a common sound being played regularly at the Rogers Centre during the Blue Jays games throughout the 2016 season.

“Steve has had a massive influence on myself and Uforia,” says Ursini. “He worked his butt off to make each song reach its maximum potential. I’ve learned more about songwriting and recording in the last year than ever before because of his talent and energy.”

The aggressive and riff-laden title track, which is also the lead single is about the struggle of making difficult decisions. “It was originally conceived after Adam Adam Brik, our lead guitarist hit a tree and dislocated his thumb in a snowboarding fall,” explains Ursini. “He was in so much pain and didn’t feel he could wait to be rescued. In that moment he made the choice to get himself down the mountain and seek the medical attention he needed.”

The EP continues with “Radiation”, a warning that ecological change is inevitable and we must embrace it and evolve in order to survive. “Wake Me” is about the struggle to wake up and escape the darkness of a dream world, while “Overthrow” encourages listeners to be patient and to take control of their own destiny when the moment is right. The EP closer “Is Anybody Living” is a track about facing your fears, particularly the fear of change.

Uforia’s previous releases include the debut EP Imagining (2012) and the fan-funded follow-up Transmutation (2015). The band has won a number of contests including the Hard Rock Rising Canada contest (2013), the opportunity to open for hometown heroes Billy Talent (2014) and the Jack Daniel’s Supporting Act contest (2016). “Fight or Flight” ranked #4 on the best songs of 2016 at CJIM Montreal’s Rock Station and 91X in Belleville. Oshawa’s 94.9 The Rock FM featured Fight or Flight (EP) on the Best of Generation Next 2016.

UFORIA first began as a solo project by front man Michael Ursini (Singer/Songwriter/Rhythm Guitar), which over the years has morphed into a talented four-piece of hard rock that has released three EPs since 2012. Influenced by bands like Billy Talent, Incubus, Finger Eleven and Our Lady Peace, among others, the group also consists of Adam Brik (Lead Guitar), Daniel Salij (Bass) and Dylan Piercey (Drums).

“This title track (Fight or Flight), in all of its gritty and tenacious swagger, smacks you in the face and demands to be listened to.” - Canadian Beats

"packing a powerful punch with no filler" - Some Kind of Media

"Uforia have released a tight collection of excellent songs and with the re-appearance of other Canadian guitar acts like Billy Talent and the aforementioned Finger Eleven into the mix we could be in for a renaissance in Canadian rock music." - The Green Room Podcast

"I must say that this band definitely picked a great name for itself. We all know the definition of Euphoria; a feeling or state of intense excitement or happiness. This is exactly how the band portrayed themselves on stage. I was impressed by their stage presence....I see a bright future for this young talented group of musicians. They have great supporters and music mentors on their side. Please check them out when they come to a city near you." - Concert Addicts

“It’s hard to fake understanding and desire. You get it or you don’t, you want it or you don’t. Uforia definitely has it.” - Steve Molella (Finger Eleven)
