Three years ago, it felt like the end of the world for drummer Scott Tiller. His band hadn't practiced in weeks, his appendix had burst, and on top of all that, he still couldn't find a name for his new group.
"We just wanted to get things going and it seemed like nothing was going to happen," he says.
Strung up in the hospital, he talked on Facebook chat with guitarist Simon Outhit and bassist Mike Andrews, lamenting the nameless band's dire circumstances. "Guys, I don't know what's going to happen," he typed. "We're all so busy and I'm getting sick. I think we're doomed."
After a night in bed, he awoke to find the band's new name splashed across his computer screen.
In just three years, post-hardcore hybrid rock outfit We're Doomed has made a name for itself by performing on the Warped Tour and releasing a pair of EPs, with plans for a debut full-length in 2013.
With the new year approaching, the Halifax based three-piece decided to take the next big step and move to Toronto.
But before they leave, Tiller says the group wanted to give back to the scene that broke them by playing their last all ages show on December 21 (AKA Doomsday) at The Pavilion to help raise money for the venue's new sound system.
"Keeping the scene alive for the young kids is so important, because without them there's no future in music," he says.
We’re Doomed w/Black Moor, Sleepshaker, Of Vice & Virtue, secret guest Friday, December 21 at The Pavilion, 5816 Cogswell Street, 5pm, $11.99 at Ticketpro.ca
