At the end of 2008, five friends and long time collaborators unite their talents for what will become Midnight Romeo. After a strong start and two Eps, they release Telephone, a rocket of an album containing 11 songs with bite and relentless energy. Shortly after it's release, the band steals the show during the Ampli de Québec showcase at the FEQ. That performance, along with the self-produced album, leads to a deal with Preste and R-Management. From that deal spawns a string of shows across Quebec and Ontario.
A first videoclip is released for the single Lonely Dancer in 2012. The following summer, the band plays many successful festival shows across the province. Come fall, Telephone enters the CMJ top 200 receiving good praise and airplay from college radios down the American east coast leading to a couple of gigs in New York City. Midnight Romeo then creates a clip for DrLove with videographer Marylin Laflamme at the helm. This trashy short includes cameos from friends from the local musical scene.
2013, Midnight Romeo makes its second full length album. This full on indie project calls in the talents of Steve Nadeau as co-producer, while Olivier Quirion records and mixes.
