The Snips were a Canadian punk band who just released a new record last year. I don't think they've ever had much of a following in the US, but I could be wrong.

No, but in all honesty most of our best bands are underrated in your country, haha. Living With Lions, Billy Talent, Carpenter, The Flatliners, Brighter Brightest, Marianas Trench... I think The Snips have some good songs and would recommend checking them out:

hmm...ill check out... I dig canadians and they tend to have awesome musicians. Yes even Billy Talent is not "big" here despite being a great band. same with Alexisonfire. They should have been bigger here

edit: awesome vid! I get a boys night out vibe. btw i miss that band :(

Man, this band was such a big deal here. Ceremonial Snips, right? They've been around forever, I remember people with their merch back when I was 11.

Glad you like them! Better late than never in my opinion, obviously the music will still live on, haha.

And yeah, I miss Boys Night Out too.

I'm still bummed about this, but "the snips call it quits" does have a nice ring to it
