Syre was formed and came out kicking and screaming in 1986. With members from Toronto, London and Kitchener they brought their unique brand of glam to the Canadian scene and through non-stop touring 50 weeks a year, built a strong live following of dedicated supporters. They began touring in the U.S and garnered a deal there to compliment their 1989 Canadian A&M Records deal by signing with Chicago based Red Light/Warner Bros. Syre also began to get some interest in Europe and Japan and leveraged on that to land deals with Intercore Records (Europe) and Sony (Japan). Syre toured coast to coast in to the mid 90’s leaving a swath of ringing ears and empty liquor stores, their livers retired in 88! Over the years they’ve had the pleasure of supporting many great acts including Helix, Nitro, Brighton Rock, Goddo, Blackfoot, Molly Hatchet, The Sweet and many more! What a ride! Syre continues to do selective dates and still enjoys a cold beer and a bright stage….if you see them around be sure to join the party.
