Originally formed in Toronto back in 2015 as a part-time project between Cam Hilborn (vox, songwriter, guitar) and drummer extraordinaire Aurora Evans, Wine Lips quickly escalated into a full-blown, full-time, full-on international phenomenon. Their debut album took them across North America followed immediately by an intensive and unexpected tour of Hong Kong and China in 2018. They released their massive “Stressor” album the very next year (2019) to rave reviews and massive critical acclaim. Multiple tracks from Stressor charted across North America and Europe radio, while several songs ended up being featured in broadcast and Netflix series. Endless touring ensued.

The new record… “Super Mega Ultra” is an absolute beast. Recorded by Simon Larochette at The Sugar Shack in Ontario, the album is jam-packed with 12 ramped-up supersonic ear-scorching auditor delicacies. SMU is probably Wine Lips’ most ambitious undertaking to date, exploring new thematic territory while firmly maintaining their signature psych garage punk rock panache. You truly need to hear the album to believe it… And if you haven’t already guessed, more endless touring is booked for 2024. The wild ride continues!

"All the identity and none of the crisis! The Macks are in their own pocket. Your DIY wet dream are hardened road warriors and goblins of their basement studio.
A Macks set is a sonic-fucking-circus. Virile and award-winning like a show horse, they are turning heads around the country and internationally through the airwaves and their touring roadshow.
The Macks are brothers Josef and Ben Windheim, Sam Fulwiler, Jacob Michael Perris, and Aidan Harrison. In 2022, the band came out with their lockdown project "Rabbit", a raw and progressive take on rock and roll that launched them towards festivals and tours from Idaho to Mexico City. And just months later, the band followed it up with "Dajiban", building on the creative successes of Rabbit and driving the band into more expansive, catchy, gnarly, and unmistakably "Macks" territory. Now, the band is sharpening their edges as they prepare to launch a new record in 2024 - pungent, pointed, and powerful, the upcoming release contains the band's most realized work to date. With a lineup that has the group firing on all cylinders both live and in the studio, "Portland's Best New Band" (Willamette Week) has folks tuning in and spelling it right."
