After The Troops Leave...

Experimental Rock

After the Troops Leave...(ATTL) is a musical formation from Ottawa, Ontario, which has emerged on the local Ottawa scene following the the demise of Sydney's Moon, which had been, up until very recently, the primary musical vehicle for Kier and Graham for the last three years.

ATTL brings with them a new sound, and a sense of urgency that is uncommon in a world full of bands that are aiming to please. ATTL represents the core writing team from Sydney's Moon; Kier Gilmour (lead vocals, acoustic and electric rhythm guitar) and Graham Myres (lead guitar, soundscapes) with the addition of Matt Aston on Drums. Beyond this core group, ATTL has not
decided on a fixed set of personnel, hoping to incorporate some alternate instrumentational elements for what would typically be known as "rock music".

ATTL formed out an interest in focusing on the potentialities of their music as a means of reflecting the socio-political context which surrounds us, and to absorb the nature of a world filled with violence and conflict through music and through performance.

ATTL rejects the constraints on the popular music. Instead ATTL hopes to communicate a more meaningful message to its audience and initiate a critical dialogue on our craft (music) and our context (socio-political reality).
