Ten Minute Detour is an alternative rock band now residing in Southern Ontario. Brought together by the winds of change (and a few classified ads), Ten Minute Detour cut their teeth in a small, detached, heatless garage in Calgary, Alberta. Their sophomore album Common Pleasure, whose seven tracks were recorded over a harrowing seven days, is a testament to the band’s maturation and growth in songwriting and storytelling, shedding the garage-rock skin and donning a more expansive, gripping, sophisticated sound.
THE BAND’S LATEST SINGLE & VIDEO
The swan song and final release of Ten Minute Detour’s inaugural lineup, Bleeding Green explores the need for action and charge in the pursuit of one’s future. The song’s messaging was seemingly prophetic. Shortly after the recording of the track had commenced Ten Minute Detour’s founding and most central members decided to depart from their western prairie home and move east in pursuit of newer and brighter opportunities.
The core tracks of the single were recorded by a very different Ten Minute Detour than exists today; the band’s relocation to southern Ontario resulted in over half of the group’s departure. Featuring contributions from several generations of Ten Minute Detour, Bleeding Green aims to acknowledge both the band’s beloved alumni, and its bright, hopeful future.
