Don’t miss this! Montreal, QC’s ERA 9 is one of the most promising, fresh new rock acts of 2017. Combining dynamic, hooky vocals with heavy rock/metal guitars mixed with addictive hip-hop and EDM beats, ERA 9 have created an original sonic blend that never “tries too hard” or becomes predictable, as many attempted rock crossover projects have.
In celebration of the holidays, ERA 9 have dropped another unpredictable, addictive music video for a new track entitled “Santa’s Naughty List (XMAS Remix)”. The track starts out as fun, club-ready trap-hop with a sinister twist, and suddenly veers into an in-your-face low and heavy metal jam. Watch here: https://youtu.be/pRb1zVUktds
ERA 9 released the video recently as an exclusive premiere partnership with the multi-platform video and music network Music Choice. The video is now available for fans to view on Music Choice On Demand (Directional: Music Choice>Holiday Hits). The video can also be found on the Music Choice app by signing in with your TV Provider ID & Password, and searching “ERA 9“. Music Choice‘s commercial-free holiday music will be available nationally throughout the US on various cable providers, via the Music Choice app and online at www.musicchoice.com.

Guitarist Jona DhePaganon says, “When it comes to the holidays, most artists make a jolly ol’ Christmas song; about good cheer, love and snow and all that. Seeing as ERA 9 doesn’t follow conventional formats, we undoubtedly went a different direction for our traprock XMAS remix of The Nutcracker, Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy. It depicts Santa (Anthony Lalla) and Mrs. Claus (Laurie Normandin) as they interrogate a few bad boys and girls who seem to always end up on the nice list. This year is different though… the Claus family is tired of their sh*t and will not be having any more of it! Watch as they personally deliver some gifts and express their disgust at the naughty ones.”
DhePaganon adds, “We filmed this with only an iPhone and a budget so low that even the props were returned when we were done (keep this between us though – we would hate to end up on the naughty list too). Merry Christmas and Happy New year from your favorite Canadians, ERA 9!”
