Duotang are a post-punk/mod-rock duo that formed in Winnipeg back in 1995. Their music quickly earned them a spot with independent record label Mint Records in March 1996. The five years that followed saw three album releases – each one topping Canadian college radio charts. After touring heavily across North America and Europe, earning the cover of Exclaim!, and winning a Prairie Music Award in 2002, Duotang disbanded for what would be 12 long years. In 2014, Duotang reunited for a show in Vancouver after an appeal was made by their old label Mint Records. Unsurmountable success trailed closely behind as they went on to play several sold-out shows and festivals. We’re eager for Duotang to show us their chops with their latest album New Occupation.
