For over ten years, The Reason have been crisscrossing the country, playing countless shows to countless fans…they’ve had videos on TV, songs in the top five and have been a staple of Canadian rock radio. But behind the rock star perception things were a little different; band members coming and going, record label expectations and van accidents. In “If It’s Not Something It’s Something Else” we follow The Reason in a unique way: the band toured Canada by train and played at house parties thrown by their fans! It’s a rare look at what it’s really like to be in a mid-level Canadian rock band, where you can have songs on the radio but still have to lug your own gear. The Reason at a crossroads in their career while paying homage to where the band came from and what made them the musicians, and men, they are today.
