Metal band based in Brighton, UK signed to Undergroove Records. Johnny Truant arrived on the UK music map at the turn of the century and have been working furiously ever since to take their vision of metal to the public. The band took their name from the drug addled protagonist of Mark Z. Danielewski's cult novel, House of Leaves. The band were originally a four-piece but as of the beginning of 2006, new guitarist, Al was added to the ranks. In 2005, the band toured the UK with Canadian band Alexisonfire. Such was the impression on the Canadians, as soon as the band returned home, they arranged a record deal for Johnny Truant with Dine Alone Records for distribution in Canada. Since, Johnny Truant have played a few shows in Ontario and a support slot with Alexisonfire in Canada is penciled in for September 2006.
