“On “Leash,” Drew’s speak-sung delivery still recalls Craig Finn but this is a slower, more melodic song for Single Mothers. It sounds a bit like a rawer version of something off Japandroids’ new album. “ BrooklynVegan
“Single Mothers live and die by post-hardcore, taking influence from forefathers that range from Quicksand to indie-rooted acts like Cursive, creating a version that is singularly theirs and singularly incendiary.” CLRVYNT
“You’d be a fool to miss out” – Kerrang!
Drew Thomson punches back at humanity and the universe while the rest of the band cranks guitar-based post-punk until it bleeds.” Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
“a singular and bracing punk rock band for people who think they’re too smart for punk rock.” AllMusic
“Combining scab-peeling punk with speak-shout vocals reminiscent of the Hold Steady, this band of townies from London, Ontario, ruthlessly skewers hypocrites, McSweeney’s snobs, drunk assholes, and God, just to name a few.“Pitchfork “Rising”
“a lesson in the power of punk…’”NME

Single Mothers have released their critically acclaimed sophomore LP, Our Pleasure, on Dine Alone Records and Big Scary Monsters (UK/Europe). With global critical acclaim from VICE’s Noisey, CLRVYNT, TIDAL, Kerrang!, Exclaim!, COLLiDE, BrooklynVegan and many more, the band has proven to be a tour de force both on stage and in the studio. An unrelenting live act, the band has announced an international tour with Touche Amore. Taking over stages with their electrifying live show across the US and Europe with Canadian dates coming soon! Full list of dates HERE or see below.

After Single Mothers began to implode – the gold rush in Northern Ontario was over and Drew Thomson’s old career as a gold prospector was no longer available to go back to. Through watching his friends go through the coveted ritual of family, marriage, kids and excitement over earning the corner office, Drew suddenly found himself questioning reality. Whether it’s a cyclical fashion trend handed down through generations, social bridge  building and foundational collapses or a lifestyle achievement, it’s all an illusion. The grass is always greener until the dog shits on both lawns. “How do we develop the vocabulary to set ourselves free to follow a new path?” Thomson muses, “People will paint you the colours convenient to them.” Ultimately, this exercise only strengthened his prolific and innate need to create.
