Sons of Butcher was a Canadian rock band consisting of three members, two of whom are brothers. Their music fuses vulgar absurdist comedy with rock music in a style that is described as "mock rock". Their band alter-egos are the focus of an animated television series developed by S&S Productions and aired on Canadian animation network Teletoon.[1] Several of the band's songs were included in the soundtrack for the 2007 film Pigs, along with a cameo by Trevor Ziebarth.

History[edit]

In 2004 Sons of Butcher began performing live in Hamilton, Ontario for small but appreciative crowds. Their blend of comedy, rock and deli trays quickly became a local sensation.

After the completion of their second TV season,[2] the Sons of Butcher live act hit the road for a full 22 show East to West Canadian tour, reaching from Halifax, NS to Nanaimo, BC. The tour culminated in a sold out performance at the Mod Club in Toronto, Ontario - which was recorded for broadcast. The concert was released as a 90-minute live special called "Sons of Butcher: Tourin' the Canada". It featured a mixture of live skits filmed across Canada and live performances from the Toronto show. The special aired May 18, 2007, on Teletoon in Canada.
