Band Biography:

For many years, "The Penske House" in Burlington, ON was known as the place to go for the after-show party. A place where several dodgy music videos have been filmed and where countless bands have slept….A place where eating a scorpion and chugging through a chandelier happened at least once. It also just so happens to be the place that Travis (Vox, Guit, Harmonica), James (Bass, Vox) and Alex (Drums, Vox) of the Penske File call home. More importantly, it's where these three young men became brothers and banded together to make some seriously awesome music.

Following hot on the heels of two critically acclaimed EPs and several massive stretches of international touring, Burn Into The Earth attacks the listener with a sonic authenticity and passion that perfectly captures the ferocious spirit of the band. These 10 epic tracks were produced with the help of long time friend and prolific recording engineer Steve Rizun (Flatliners, Motorleague, Junior Battles). Meanwhile, with a touch of harmonica, and the warm, welcoming pop sensibilities, The Penske File feel like an all-inclusive band for misfits, romantics, workers and intellects alike. On tour, everywhere, forever.

From the press gallery: 

"The Penske File are a fantastic, never before seen or heard mixture of melodic folk punk, pop punk and punk rock. Let's call it "brother-punk" because whether you know them or not, they feel like your friends when they're up on stage."- Scene Magazine

"A genre-fused offering that blends the spirit of punk with deep rooted melodies and lyrics that echo Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen, The Penske File have created a sound that is all their own." – Audioblood

 "It's evident just by listening to the upbeat hooks, that these three guys from Burlington, Ontario, really love what they're doing.." – Kingston Music
