Since 2001, the Ultimate Power Duo has steadily pushing the boundaries with genre-defying recordings and energetic, frenzied live shows. Propagating its unique brand of “Demolition Rock” to the masses, band members The Riz (Bass / Lead Vocals), Scottrp (Guitar / Vocals), and AK Double AK (drums) have been featured at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, the Vans Warped Tour, Canadian Music Week, Western Canada Music Awards, CBC Radio 3, CBC Television, Muchmusic, Telecable 10, and Shaw Cable. International festival performances include South By South-West in Austin, Texas, and The Great-Escape Festival in Brighton, England. UPD creates a high energy rock show that has been described as “the music that would be made if the neo-garage rock of The Hives or Rocket From The Crypt played a game of Chicken with The Minutemen and The Ramones and neither backed down,” (Great Escape Review). Ultimate Power Duo have released four e.p.’s, two full length albums, compilation contributions and are the creators, composers and writers of Ultimate Power Duo Presents The Advetures of Space Joe: Ad Astra a 20 track concept album accompanied by a 90 page graphic novel.
“[UPD’s] “The Cone of Silence” is the best live song ever written.” – Jay Bentley (Bad Religion)
Ultimate Power Duo is the best Canadian band I’ve seen yet!” – Nigel Bennett (The Vibrators)
