JUST ANNOUNCED:

Headlining 2010's Rock the Boat is Canadian Rock Band THE STILLS!!!

After spending a couple of months living in New York City this five-piece Montreal based rock band released their first EP in 2003.  Shortly after the EP's release the band played a number of successful shows with some big name acts such as the “Yeah, Yeah Yeahs” and “Interpol”.  Later that year they released their debut full length album entitled "Logic Will Break Your Heart" which reached the top 40 of the US Independent Albums Chart.

In 2006 they released their second album which reached number 18 on the Billboard Top Independent Albums List.

After signing with label Arts & Crafts in 2007 the band went back into the studio to work on their third album.  “Oceans Will Rise” was released in 2008 and since has produced 3 successful singles, (“Don’t Talk Down”, “I’m With You”, and “Being Here”).  This critically acclaimed and highly successful third album also won the band a 2009 Juno Award for Alternative Album of the Year.
