)-- MTS Management Group's Canadian rock band Across The Board has been widely recognized for their inventive and visually stunning music videos. The band took home a Los Angeles-based 2019 Indie Music Channel Award for Best Rock Video, while two of their videos were recently selected for the prestigious Toronto Lift Off Film Festival. ATB’s videos have been screened at film festivals around the globe, including those in Russia, USA, Kenya and other countries.
On August 31, 2019, the Top 5 iTunes rock charting band will release the long-awaited music video for the title track of their latest album, “Wild Ones.” https://youtu.be/e-R_kpvYji4
“Wild Ones” celebrates autonomy and uniqueness using the analogy of the “Lone Wolf” who strives for independence yet understands the necessity of “The Pack.” ATB explores the power of self-expression and inner strength. Filmed in a remote forest in Ontario, Canada, “Wild Ones” features lyrical dancer, Toronto’s Murphy MacDonald-Rea who portrays a transformation from trepidation and doubt into freedom, self-expression and strength. The message is powerful and the video, produced and recorded by MC2 Music Media (Toronto, Canada) captures the metamorphosis as our heroine finds her “inner wolf.”
The album was co-written and produced by MC2 Music Media’s Darnell Toth & Matt Makarenko with ATB’s Jacqueline Auguste, Andy Ramjattan and Martin Heller.
