"Rockstars and entertainers with a sincere change-the-world-with-heart attitude" (Midnight Matinee), Toronto's Paint have earned their reputation as one of Canada's hardest-working and most genuine indie bands, playing over 200 shows from Vancouver to Halifax in support of two critically-acclaimed albums through Universal Music, including multiple returns to North by Northeast (considered one of the top 12 performing acts in 2012 by the Toronto Star), Canadian Music Week, Indie Week, New Music West, and The Hamilton Music Awards (for which Michael Chambers won Best Engineer in 2011).Paint has worked with the same people who have produced, mixed, and mastered Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, The Tragically Hip, City and Colour, Feist, The Trews, Social Distortion, and Bright Eyes, and won the fan favourite on 102.1 The Edge. Frontman Robb Johannes has been running for mayor of Toronto, reconnecting the band's music to his social activist roots.
After releasing a compilation of 14 music videos called Capsulated in 2013, Paint is currently embarking on a multimedia black-and-white film called 11:11 and accompanying soundtrack courtesy of a dedicated fanbase through IndieGogo and the Canadian government's FACTOR program.
