Speaking Canaries

The Speaking Canaries (sometimes "Thee Speaking Canaries" or "The(e) Speaking Canaries") are an indie rock group from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They are probably best known for being Don Caballero drummer Damon Che's "other band", and for their unabashed love of the kind of 1970s and '80s hard rock purveyed by bands such as KISS and Rush -- indeed, the Canaries' second album "Songs for the Terrestrially Challenged" famously features covers of not one but two Van Halen songs.
