Canadian nerd-rockers DOUBLE EXPERIENCE announce they will be supportingHed PE on their European/ UK tour dates along with Conveyer from January 25th until February 25th (dates listed below). DOUBLE EXPERIENCE have performed across 15 countries, playing everywhere from video game museums to tattoo conventions to Ottawa and Montreal ComicCons as well as many other gatherings such as MAGFest and GuardianCon as well as showcases at Canadian Music Week and Indie Week Canada. Their adventures have been supported by international radio, festivals and television alike, culminating with an entire nerd-rock exposé and performance on Global TV in Canada.
The band recently released their FACTOR-funded single / music video, “The Pilot” off their upcoming fourth album “Rock (Geology)” to follow 2016’s break out, “Unsaved Progress”, an album that included their much loved single “The Glimmer Shot”; a Destiny-themed rock anthem, which earned them accolades from the creators of the video game itself plus their cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s “Godzilla”.
Guitarist Brock Tinsley comments:
“We’re proud to return to Europe for the first time since 2015 with these hard-hitting bands, so we’re prepared our most energetic show to date. If anyone thinks these Canadian geeks can’t bring the muscle, they’ll be in for a big surprise.”

About:What does a DIY Canadian rock duo do after charting on the National Loud Chart, releasing a viral video-game anthem and touring the globe in the wake of critical reviews and mainstream press?
Whatever they want.
The newest newest offering of hard-rock mad-science from Double Experience is “Rock (Geology)”; a continuation of the band’s 5 year series of music released on collectible trading cards. The first, FACTOR-funded single, “The Pilot” was released on November 16, 2017.
In fact, the only thing ‘conventional’ about Double Experience is their undying affinity for comic convention culture. The band have performed for audiences at Ottawa and Montreal ComicCon as well as many other gatherings such as MAGFest and GuardianCon. Their Destiny-inspired single “The Glimmer Shot” even earned in-game accolades from Bungie, the developer of the multi-million user franchise. Double Experience’s quirky lyrical content has connected with hundreds of thousands of Spotify listeners and their undeniable live show has been perfected over hundreds of performances at clubs and festivals across 16 countries.
Double Experience’s DIY-story and business acumen has been shared at music industry conventions (IndieWeek) and hundreds of high schools and colleges across the world. Since the band’s inception in 2014, Band members Ian Nichols (vocals, bass) and Brock Tinsley (guitar) have established themselves as the nucleus of a dynamic alchemy of players, collaborating with musicians such as Fred Mascherino (Taking Back Sunday, Terrible Things) and Steve Bache (He is Legend) in studio and onstage.
You have been slain by the band biography… Continue?
“Their new album is upbeat and full of awesome tracks, leading straight into the first song, ‘So fine‘, which instantly gets you into the mood of this album.” – Ram Zine (UK)
“Verifying my “nerd” suspicions, they began and closed an original song with Darth Vader’s theme, the Imperial March, and I couldn’t have been happier about it. In addition to their set of mainly original music, they also included a cover of Blue Oyster Cult’s Godzilla, which was fitting with their stoner vibe, especially considering there is also a Fu Manchu version.” – Spotlight Ottawa
“this band is passionate about video games which is reflected in the underlying themes of their music. More apparent to non-video game savvy listeners is that Double Experience are a solid rock band with well crafted and catchy tunes that have crossover appeal to fans of different music genres.” – Forget The Box
“The songs on this, 9 track, album are narrative driven and mammoth in proportion. Songs like ‘AAA‘ and ‘Godzilla‘ are glorious sagas of esoteric depth. There is a power on this album that is both new and old.” – 925 Rebellion
