The Matchup

After over 15 years of rockin’ out in various bands, Sébastien Filiatrault and Bruno Longpré, AKA Rat & Burger for the intimates, totally left out one day, gathered around a messy table with a gazillion Pabst Blue Ribbon, 2 guitars and the will to take over the world. Since the release of their first EP Turbo Power Excellent in 2012, pretty much all the underground punk rock scene from the Province of Québec started to have its eyes set on this new phenomenon hailing from Santa-Teresa that was The Matchup. Following up the next year with Alternative To Metal, the band delivered some of its most memorable anthems, including Welcome TomorrowFollow Me HomeThe Game and Low. Quickly, the band gathered a stronger following to its concerts with almost only the power of their music. Right after the release of the third EP Cool Your Djent (2015), Rat went on a hiatus due to personal issues. Meanwhile, Burger kept the band going with the help of Pat Savate as well as Gilbert Vallerand. However, in 2019, Rat surprised all Matchup fans by announcing his return in the band with Burger, just like in the good old days. From now on, the guys are more driven than ever to write a whole new chapter in the Matchup’s history. Meanwhile, they have chosen to join forces with Hell For Breakfast, the new division from the Montreal-based music label Slam Disques, in order to officially launch their next project.
