Try Honesty EP
Try Honesty / Living in the Shadows

Try Honesty is an EP released by Canadian band Billy Talent in 2001. The EP was recorded and mixed by Justin Koop and Billy Talent at The Music Gym in Burlington Ontario. The first version of the EP features black and white lettering on an all green background. The re-released version has black and white lettering with a picture of the band on a red background. This EP is very rare and sells for hundreds of dollars on eBay.[citation needed] This recording eventually gave them their credibility, allowing them to be noticed by producer Gavin Brown, in which he soon helped them finally sign them to a major label, and to explode onto the mainstream.

A music video was produced for the song which has the group performing in what appears to be an abandoned facility. It saw moderate airplay on Fuse in late 2003.
