"For every jangly guitar line....there"s a chiming rafter-raiser more reminiscent of U2." - Darryl Sterdan, Toronto Sun
Toronto"s Union City released their first single These Days in North America and immediately received widespread airplay through American and Canadian college radio, even cracking the American college radio (CMJ) charts.
Due to the success of the single in the North American college charts, and a successful mini-American tour to support it, the band signed a licensing deal with several television networks in the US (including MTV, E!TV and Oxygen Networks) in 2010, for These Days, The War, and The Girl Who Wasnt There for programs like The City (The Hills spinoff), Keeping Up With the Kardashians, The Spindustry, The Bad Girls Club, and Warren the Ape, among others..
Union City played at Canadian Music Week in Toronto for the second time in March 2012, and was invited to play SXSW in Austin, Texas, but unfortunately due to VISA issues and poor management, were unable to make the journey. They are hoping to make it back down to the States in the near future.
In 2011, Union City released the song "Help Me Out" as a free download from their official web site. They are currently writing and recording for a follow up full-length release.
