If you could translate AkoufèN in English, you would get Tinnitus. Obviously, they are not going to be coming out with acoustic guitars… This Ottawa based metal band is not just like any other band. They are succeeding in doing what some might consider impossible: Building a musical career in French in Canada! These four friends, native from Timmins and Hawkesbury, have been playing as AkoufèN for 3 years now. Their first EP "Sens Perdu" as sold over 300 copies in only 2 months. In September of 2010, AkoufèN had the chance to perform at Canada's biggest Francophone music festival, "Le Festival international de la chanson de Granby" in Granby, QC. Recently, AkoufèN got 1st place in LME's Battle of the Bands semi-final round and will be performing at the finals in August 2011. They are currently all students in Ottawa, where they will shoot their first music video. You have not heard the end of this great Ottawa based band.
