Hostage Life

Toronto, Ontario

Hostage Life was a punk band from Toronto. Formed in 2002, Hostage Life released its first EP, Sing for the Enemy on Toronto's independent punk rock label, Underground Operations, home to such bands as Closet Monster and Protest The Hero. The band's second album on the same label, titled Walking Papers, received significant positive criticism from Canadian publications, and the first single, "This Song Was Written By A Committee" achieved widespread radio-play on Toronto's own pre-eminent alternative music radio station, CFNY. - Wikipedia
