What originally formed as a band to support guitarist and vocalist Matt Stanley’s solo EP “The Life & Times” in 2008, has developed into one of Western Canada’s most active independent rock ‘n’ roll bands – The Decoys. Comprised of core members Stanley on guitar/vocals and Sean Poissant on drums, the Kamloops, BC based band deliver raw and honest tunes influenced by the spirit of Neil Young, The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and Led Zeppelin. 
Their 2011 debut album “Stripped, Bare, And On Display”, co-produced by Henry Small (Prism, Scrubbaloe Caine, John Entwistle Band), garnered much support from Western Canadian radio for their singles “I Know” and “Modern Disaster”. This was followed by their sophomore effort, 2016’s “In Our Blood”, which saw the singles “Don’t Hesitate”, “The Underdog” and the title track gain radio play nationally and receive positive reviews. With that support and a growing fan base, The Decoys  released the explosive new single “Until The Sun” from their new EP “Damaged Goods”.
Recorded in 2017 in Vancouver and Kelowna, “Damaged Goods” showcases The Decoys’ continuing evolution and maturity as songwriters, touching on influences ranging from hard rock and alternative to southern and country rock. The video for “Until The Sun”, filmed just outside of Winnipeg with James Rewucki of Absurd Machine Films, dropped October 5, 2018, followed by EP “Damaged Goods” on November 30.
