Solid Brass Records proudly announces the forthcoming triple LP colored vinyl retrospective of Ottawa, Canada 90s post-hardcore trio Shotmaker. The deluxe band-curated box set A Moment In Time: 1993-1996 is available to pre-order starting today. The first single “Now and Then” is now streaming everywhere HERE.

SHOTMAKER was formed in 1993 by three friends from the small towns of Tweed and Belleville in Ontario, Canada: Matt Deline (drums, vocals), Tim McKeough (guitar, vocals), and Nick Pye (bass, vocals). The band relocated to Ottawa in 1994 before ending its run in 1996. The band is widely recognized for influencing the direction of emo and post-hardcore music. 

During their relatively short time together Shotmaker harnessed the collective creativity of the Canadian DIY community to make something special happen. They wrote and recorded two 7”s, two LPs, a split LP (with Washington, D.C., based Maximillian Colby) and numerous songs for compilations and other split records. The band thrived on playing live shows and completed three coast-to-coast North American tours in addition to many smaller tours. They regularly shared the stage with bands like Policy of 3, Los Crudos, Unwound, Rorschach, Cap’n Jazz, Indian Summer, Rye Coalition, Modest Mouse, Propagandhi, Hoover, Clikatat Ikatowi, Blonde Redhead and Fugazi.

A Moment in Time: 1993-1996 is a band-curated, 3xLP box set on colored vinyl. Also included is a 12 page booklet with never before seen images from Canadian photographer Shawn Scallen who chronicled much of the band’s history. All the music has been mastered for vinyl by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege in Portland, OR.

A Moment in Time: 1993-1996 will be available on limited edition 3xLP on three colored vinyl and digital on October 27, 2023 via Solid Brass Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
