Flashback was formed in a garage in Calgary, Alberta (Canada) in the spring of 2016. From hashing out cover tunes in a basement to writing and recording original music, Flashback has undergone quite a drastic natural progression. In 2017 guitarist and lead vocalist Aidan Desmarais, alongside drummer Lucas MacLeod and bassist Gabriel Lagasca self released their debut self-titled demo album, and in 2018 came the release of the demo album »Persistence«, which showed more evolution from their first recording, in regards to production and songwriting.

With the addition of guitarist Jacob Chase in the summer of 2019, Flashback evolved even further from the original lineup’s sound and released their record label debut, »Heathen Of Influence« on Wasted Wax Records. Shortly after, Lagasca left the band.

In 2022, Flashback released their new single »Nemesis«, which is the first to feature new bassist Kellen Wyslouzil. Flashback is currently working on a new release and continues to play all over Alberta and abroad.

Flashback is:
Aidan Desmarais – Vocals, Guitars
Jacob Chase – Guitars
Kellen Wyslouzil – Bass
Lucas MacLeod – Drums
