The Discarded hail from a small town just north of Toronto, Canada called Orangeville. They are comprised of eighteen year old drummer, Caden Jax, twenty-two year old, Jared Dean on bass and veteran rocker J.P. on guitar and vocals. Yeah they’re all related but this isn’t any Partridge family reunion. They are a tight, hard rocking unit that draws upon their shared history to create original punk inspired Rock and Roll
In fact after just five years together they’ve released 43 original songs, four full length albums and one EP: 2017’s self-titled release, 2018’s “Manifesto”, March 2019‘s Act 1, five song EP -“Not from this Town” November 2019 “Sound Check and Fury”(act 2 &3)- check out the “script page” on this website to read the play that goes with these two releases. And now 2021, we see “Live Pandemic Sessions” with fifteen more tunes and seven never before releleased/recorded.
This new LP was culled from three sets the band played/filmed on August 2, 2020 in lieu of being able to play live shows. Theses video sets are on the bands Youtube channel for free as well as a fourth set of just this albums songs.
2020 also saw them complete the recording of their most ambious project to date, “The Getgoes” which they are currently working towards a summer 2022 release with an accompanying annimated film.
The Discarded are keeping busy as well with a whole slate of new tunes they are itching to record.
