'Blistered, Battered, Shattered'
Teku Syndrom is an Edmundston, New Brunswick based band who are currently riding the success of their debut single "Help Me Grow." The 5-member group brings together their influences--ranging from GnR to Blondie, King's X to Iron Maiden--to form their own soaring, surging brand of rock.
Named for the state of mind lead guitarist Eric "Raz" Toussaint enters when songwriting with his trusty Teku glass in-hand, Teku Syndrom features the brilliant voice of lead singer Teresa, along with Raz's own scorching lead work. Jamy (drums) and Tony (bass) lay a technically strong foundation inspired by their prog and metal roots. Eric N completes the line-up on rhythm guitar.
The band's debut single "Help Me Grow" was released in May 2022 and quickly worked its way up numerous online charts as well onto Australian radio. The powerful ballad captures the emotions surrounding Raz's daughter's gender transition, delving into how she reached out to her family for support throughout her life-changing/altering/awakening and inspirational journey.
As Teku Syndrom continues work on their debut album, slated for a May 2023 release, their writing has gathered momentum, gaining power and intensity. "Blistered, Battered, Shattered" is a no-holds-barred guitar-driven rocker, complete with a blistering guitar solo. "Lost" kicks and punches as a bold mid-tempo rocker.
