My Own Addiction Let You Know How The Story Goes

The Oshawa rockers have a cello-sweetened tale to tell in their latest single.

My Own Addiction share a compelling tale of personal struggle in their new single and video How The Story Goes — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

The latest release from the Oshawa rockers’ recent self-titled album, How The Story Goes — which finds the band adding some Metallica-inspired cello to their guitar-driven sound — has an origin story of its own, says singer Alexandra Augustine. “I really like storytelling in my lyrics, but I truly had no idea what story to tell when I wrote this song,” she explains. “It was the bane of my existence for, like, three weeks, which in hindsight seems like a short amount of time — but I was wrestling with it. I guess that’s how the story goes! Anyway, it’s probably one of my most honest songs, and I leave it to you as a listener to find what it means for you.”

The four-piece band formed in the late summer of 2022, and wasted no time getting into the studio to record their full LP that same year. Along with Augustine, the band features Andrew Losier on guitar, Todd Burrows on drums and Tim Reesor on bass. Their sound combines high-energy classic rock with hard blues undertones and a sprinkle of Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. They opened for Buckcherry over the summer and are heading out with Anvil in the fall.
