Crimson will Reign at ‘old stomping grounds’

Crimson Reign, consisting of Cam Wilkison, Dylan Weyler and Callum Jackman as well as "new" member Jacob Stone, will return to their old stomping grounds to shake the Island music scene once again.

THE MEX PUB will rock this Saturday to the sounds of Crimson Reign.

Crimson Reign, consisting of Cam Wilkison, Dylan Weyler and Callum Jackman as well as “new” member Jacob Stone, will return to their old stomping grounds to shake the Island music scene once again.

Having headed for the bright lights of the big city to fulfill their musical destiny a year ago, Crimson Reign swept into Vancouver ready to start a new chapter. During the move, they lost their bass player and lead singer, but the band did not let this loss slow them down.

Determined, the three remaining members started playing as a trio, keeping their eyes open for a fourth member. Weyler picked up the bass, Wilkison continued on guitar and Jackman continued on drums.

During their months as a trio, the band spent extreme hours rehearsing; each member stepped up to the plate vocally, and the band became stronger and more diverse yet again.

Months passed, and then one day, in stepped Stone, the fourth member of Crimson Reign. Stone’s presence and talent allowed Weyler and Wilkison the chance to put those two guitars back to work.

Although the band enjoyed their time as a trio, they admit they cannot get enough of the full, rich sound of two guitars.

Having become increasingly prominent on the Vancouver night scene, the band is again gaining much-deserved steam. They are focusing more on studio time and getting back to their originals.

Their covers still have the familiar classic rock guitar-driven sound fans love but with a twist.

Crimson Reign has been inspired to integrate a modern sound to their traditional classic rock persona, channeling recent greats such as Kings of Leon, the Killers and The Foo Fighters.

The diversity of this band is unreal and unparalleled. See it. Feel it. Believe it.

Crimson Reign is eagerly awaiting their return to The Mex, and they are ready to rock.

It happens Aug 6 from 9:30 p.m. to 1:30 a.m. No cover.
