biographical info

The Saint Alvia Cartel is Burlington Ontario’s latest contribution to [good] music…. And these guys are no strangers to the music scene as they have all enjoyed stints with former and current projects including: Boys Night Out, Jersey, The Video Dead, and hardcore legends Grade. ‘Nuff said.

Having ended his relationship with Boys Night Out, Rob Pasalic swore off booze, drugs, and mainly music. After getting word of the demise of legendary punk rock band Jersey, Greg Taylor (Jersey/Grade) bumped into Pasalic and revealed a brand spanking new vision: The Saint Alvia Cartel.

“It’s funny really, some abusive addictions you just can’t kick…”

Pasalic comments on the inception of the band that is named in homage Ernest Alvia “Smokey” Smith (Canada’s last WWII veteran). With their roots firmly planted in punk-rock, the band also draws inspiration from almost every genre out there: roots, rock and roll, blues, soul, dancehall reggae, country, new wave and hip hop.

The Saint Alvia Cartel gave the world a taste of their eclectic and infectious melodies after recording and releasing a couple demo tracks via MySpace in 2006. It was enough for Montreal’s STOMP RECORDS, who inked the deal as soon as they got the chance. Saint Alvia are currently in the studio working with producer Justin Koop (Grade, Silverstein, The Reason), and continue documenting experiences of love, loss, addiction, death and just getting by to be released on their debut full-length due out in May, 07.
