Vanier Hall, Prince George
Formed in the early 90s all five original members met while attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. After the release of their sophomore record “The Pleasure and the Greed”, they disbanded shortly after. In 2012, Big Wreck reunited after a decade long hiatus with the release of Albatross, which debuted at #5 on the Top 200 SoundScan chart in Canada (their highest debut to date) and hit #25 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart.
The title-track from Albatross earned Big Wreck the title as the first Canadian band to hit #1 on the Canadian Rock Radio chart in over a year, a position they went on to maintain for six weeks. Albatross received a 2013 JUNO Award nomination for “Rock Album of the Year” and earned the band another three Top 10 Canadian Rock Radio singles. Their 2014 follow-up Ghosts debuted at #5 on the Canadian Albums Chart and #4 on the US Billboard Heatseekers chart. Ghosts would be the band’s second JUNO nominated album for “Rock Album of the Year” in 2015. In 2016, Big Wreck‘s first single “One Good Piece of Me” off their 5th studio album, Grace Street (ole label group / Anthem) was the #1 added single for Rock Radio and Top Downloaded song the week of November 11, 2016.
