Default (Kitchener’s Centre In The Square)

Default is a Canadian rock band that gained prominence in the early 2000s. The band formed in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1999, and they quickly rose to fame with their debut album, “The Fallout,” released in 2001.

The band’s lineup consisted of lead vocalist Dallas Smith, guitarist Jeremy Hora, bassist Dave Benedict, and drummer Danny Craig. They gained attention with their single “Wasting My Time,” which became a hit on rock radio stations in Canada and the United States. The song’s success helped propel “The Fallout” to platinum status in Canada and gold status in the United States.

Following the success of their debut album, Default released several more albums, including “Elocation” in 2003, “One Thing Remains” in 2005, and “Comes and Goes” in 2009. While they didn’t achieve the same level of commercial success as their debut, Default continued to maintain a dedicated fan base and toured extensively.

In 2013, Default announced a hiatus as the members pursued other projects and interests. Dallas Smith, in particular, found success as a country music artist in Canada. Despite the hiatus, Default occasionally reunited for live performances and continued to be remembered for their impact on the Canadian rock music scene during the early 2000s.
