Canadian rock outfit The Commoners has shared “The Way I Am,” the second single taken from the band’s upcoming album “Restless”. The LP will be released on Friday 21 June 2024 via Gypsy Soul Records.

Following their critically acclaimed 2022 sophomore album “Find A Better Way“, the Toronto-born quintet continue their dedicated musical journey to provide listeners with a hearty dose of Southern-style swagger accentuated with slide guitar, organ swell, and heartfelt vocals.

As with our previous album, we wanted to marry old and new southern rock together in a way that was unique to the band’s Canadian roots,” reveals The Commoners guitarist and producer Ross Hayes Citrullo. “By adding the soul and rock elements of The Black Crowes, and the southern blues rock undertones of The Allman Brothers to a production style akin to Blackberry Smoke and Rival Sons, I think we developed an authentic sound that compares sonically to some of our favourite records across all of those music genres.
