Alter The Press! Presents: Prom Night In Black and White

Hailing out of Saskatoon, SK Canada, Prom Night In Black and White started life out as vocalist Joel Cossette's solo project and since 2007 has evolved to a hard-hitting pop punk band that classes Four Year Strong and All Time Low as influences.

Having toured their home country and played select dates on the Vans Warped Tour, the four-piece have achieved success online and have plans to record their first full length later this year.

With a feel-good sound that resonates with tons of energy, Prom Night In Black and White will instantly win fans over of pop punk as tracks like 'New Homes' has it all; catchy choruses, fast tempos, heavy guitars, gang vocals and much more.

For Fans Of: Four Year Strong, All Time Low, Paramore, and New Found Glory.

Alter The Press: Why should Alter The Press! readers check you out?
Prom Night In Black and White: We are your new favourite band! We are the gap between pop rock music and the heavy pop punk genre. You will be singing along to catchy choruses, and then moshing your brains out to heavy breakdowns. Oh, and we even have a sweep tapping solo. We have a party happy live show, and we tour non stop. So chances are you will hear of us coming to you town or city soon enough.

ATP: What's the story behind the band?
Prom Night In Black and White: Prom Night was started in late 2007 as Joels' acoustic project when he was only 16 years old. It then grew into a full band. We got a good online buzz after recording our first single, and that won us the chance to play at Vans' Warped Tour on select dates. After that, we started to tour Canada and grow our following. We then recorded our first EP entitled "This Sinking Ship" with our single "Flaws In Her Words" which landed us the number 1 spot on and allowed us the chance to play Vans' Warped Tour again on select dates. After that, in 2009, we continued to tour and recorded our second, heavier EP called "Before I Drown". We recently recorded a brand new single called "New Homes". That also landed us the number 1 spot on and you can get it for free download on our Purevolume.

ATP: Single highlight as a band so far?
Prom Night In Black and White: There has been a lot of great moments as a band, as amazing as Vans' Warped Tour was, it was more of a chance to gain new fans then anything else. But the best highlight would have to be playing SharksFest in Kamloops Canada. There was at least 300 kids there, and they knew the words to all of our songs, screamed along to our entire set as well as moshed out to every breakdown. We have played to bigger crowds in our hometown of Saskatoon, but something about the energy of that show, and knowing we where so far from home made it amazing.

ATP: What are your plans for the 12 months?
Prom Night In Black and White: We currently are in the midst of booking another cross Canada tour for July and August, as well multiple mini tours leading up to that. We are also writing very hard so that we can finish a full length. We then are going to being recording our full length. We also have plans to begin touring in the United States.
