    2Can You Keep A Secret [2006]


    Life hasn't been the same since late 2000 for the Portuguese emotional punkrockers Easyway.

    Brimming with experience across a broad range of underground music, band members Tiago, Miguel, Rodrigo and André got together through a shared love of punk rock, and haven't looked back since.

    In 2001, the band entered a studio for the first time and set about recording a seven track demo cd, a piece of work that earned the band a lot of positive attention within the industry. At the end of the summer of 2001, original drummer Rodrigo was replaced by former Sacred Sin (successful Portuguese metallers) drummer Danilo Warick. With the line up cemented, the band played live whenever and wherever they could, in order to further their reputation as an incredible live band.

    After teeming up with the Spanish band Gas Drummers and their friends Aside for some concerts together, Easyway started recording at the OCV Studio's in Lisbon in 2003.

    With the recordings completed, guitarist and sound engineer Miguel headed to Los Angeles where the mixing and production job was slaved over by the well known producer Cameron Webb (who is best known for his work with the bands Limp Bizkit, Staring Back, Social Distortion and Danzig, among others).

    In the meantime, Easyway were invited to support Lagwagon and Joey Cape -singer with Lagwagon - liked what he heard so much, he made a guest appearence on the 'Forever In A Day' debut album. The result of that duet is a huge, unrelenting punk song with Easyway's trademark beautiful melodies.

    In November of 2003, a split cd with the Brazilian band It Feels Good was released on the Brazilian label Oneliferecords.

    In 2004, bass player André got married and made the decision to leave the band. Miguel, long time friend and Fonzie's ex-bass player, took his place.

    The debut album 'Forever In A Day' was released in April 2004 in Belgium, Netherlands, Germany and Denmark though Funtime Records.

    The one month European tour that followed rocked it's way through Spain, France, Belgium and the Netherlands!! The response was absolutely overwhelming...!!

    In June came the Portuguese release of "Forever In A Day" through Raging Planet Records, which lead to a string of very successful live shows, including a well-received Backyard Babies support slot, and several national festivals (playing with the likes of Danko Jones, Moonspell and others), as well as nationwide press, radio and TV coverage (MTV Portugal, for example). September saw them support The Offspring on their Lisbon show, with amazing public reaction and feedback. The video for their 'Forever In A Day' single spent fifteen weeks on the MTV Portugal Histlist, having reached the number 2.

    Also, this year saw the Brazilian release of the debut album through Highlight Sounds (home of Danko Jones), which led to extensive coverage by MTV Brazil.

    Following a successful 9-date tour of France and Switzerland during February, the band went on to wow crowds and critics throughout April when they visited Holland, Belgium and Germany.

    Their second single, 'That's Not The Right Way', went straight into the MTV Hitlist at number 6, above artists as prestigious as Green Day, Garbage and Gwen Stefani.

    May 2005 saw the Super Bock Super Rock festival debut alongside Turbonegro and The Hives, on a bill that also included Iggy & The Stooges, Marilyn Manson, Incubus, New Order and System Of A Down, and a very successful Japanese release.

    The summer was packed with back-to-back national tours and September saw them return to Belgium for the 4th time to Headline the Funfest Festival, and go back to studio to record their second album "Can you keep a secret?". Swedish Pelle Saether (Bombshell Rocks, No Fun at All) was in charge of the mixing and Peter in de Betou (No Fun at ALL, Raised Fist, Millencolin) of the mastering..

    "Can you keep a secret" was released in Portugal through Zona Musica on May 2nd 2006 and has already proved an even bigger success than the previous album. With both radio and TV full support, the band were the number one new entry on national airplay and the video for the single "Hush Baby" has gone straight to number 7 on MTV's Hitlist.

    The band has just signed a worldwide publishing deal with Universal Publishing and the album is scheduled for release in September in Japan, Holland and Belgium. the rest of the world will follow. "Your Worst Enemy" will be released in all of Europe on October 9th as part of the Eastpak Antidote Compilation 06, which includes tracks by bands like Gogol Bordello, Disco Ensemble, Danko Jones and Sun Eats Hours. The summer is also seeing the track "October 9th" be part of the sound track of the most successful TV show in Portugal "Morangos com Açúcar"

    "Impressed? You will be. If you've never heard the name Easyway now's the time to take note. "Forever in a Day" is a glorious slice of melodic pop-rock goodness. (...) Time for Portugal to take over the world's rock scene, perhaps? It could happen. There is not a bad track on "Forever in a Day" (...) Easyway are easily the way to go." 5/5 www.blackvelvetmagazine.com (UK)

    "So what's all the excitement about? And is it justified? Well yeah, "Forever In A Day" is chock full of uptempo poppunk tracks with some great hooks, nice vocal harmonies and comes with a vocalist who sounds a lot like Millencolin's Nikola. In fact, if you've enjoyed the last couple of Millencolin albums, then you should dig "Forever In A Day" as well." www.punkrocktheory.com (Belgium)

    "Forever In A Day" is so shamelessly fantastic it is beyond the point of being ridiculous" - www.europunk.net (band of the Month)

    "EASYWAY' music is easy to listen, well composed, with an above average production and, live, the band can put on stage all the adrenalin necessary to a good concert" 10/10 - Cameraman Metálico, A CAPITAL (translated)

    "They are at the same level as the best in this genre worldwide"
    António Corte-Real (UHF) - http://canalmaldito.blogspot.com/ (translated)

    "The radio phonic potential of "Sunshine" or "Fake a Smile (My Mistake)" gives you shivers and what we have here is the perfect sound track for a Summer afternoon spent on a beach somewhere" - José Rodrigues, BLITZ (translated)

    "All those of you who need to know that there are amazing bands besides what the big labels have to offer, check out this South European band" - www.disagreement.net/reviews/easyway_foreverinaday.html

    "The reaction during the performance of the authors of "Forever in a Day" was even chilling, mainly so during "Jardins Proibidos". Anyways, two good proofs that – right now – the nacional punk/rock/pop is in very good hands." - José Rodrigues, LOUD Portugal (translated)

    "Forever in a Day, the debut release of Easyway, left the industry perplex. Fans, critics, promoters and labels have been unanimous in considering it a magnificent album." 8/10 - Dico http://metalincandescente.blogspot.com (translated)

    "Will Portugal be for Punk in the 2000's the same that Sweden was in the 90's?" - Punk Rawk Magazine (France)
