The Soles are set to shake things up at Bell Park on July 27. The alternative band is stopping in Sudbury as part of its tour to promote their new album Anodos Kathodos

The alternative ensemble will play two shows, the first at the Grace Hartman Aphitheatre from 7-8:30 p.m., with the final show of the tour at Speakeasy at 10 p.m.

Members Din Yalonen (vocalist and guitarist) Adam Gomori (lead guitarist and vocalist) and Austin Gembora (drummer) formed in 2001, with a lineup changes along the way.

The band made a name for themselves in 2008 with their first official full-length album You Burst into Fire Again. After years of playing around Toronto, the Soles got their big break playing at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. Since then, the group has gained much more traction and received more notable bookings.

When asked about the difficulties of making a name in the modern music industry, Yalonen said the main struggle is doing everything yourself before letting a label come in.

The rockers have played hundreds of live shows, from Seattle to Ottawa, as well as charting in the top 30 of five radio stations with their “Broken Ghost” EP.

The group describes their sound as a combination of rock, punk, folk, power-pop and electronic. While working towards their next full band album, they experimented with alternate electronic rock versions of new songs and these alternates are what compose Anodos Kathodos.

The new full album is set to be released by the end of 2014.

This will be the bands' fifth show in Sudbury. Yalonen said the Soles love coming back because the turnout is always good and the crowd always exudes a great energy.
