About Les Trois Accords

Since their formation in 1997, Drummondville’s Les Trois Accords (The Three Agreements) have enjoyed a long, prolific run as the resident merry pranksters of Québécois alt-rock. On their 2003 debut, Gros mammouth album, Les Trois Accords presented themselves as wide-eyed Warped Tour aspirants who were truly warped, twisting their bratty pop-punk template with shots of ska, country, and indie jangle. But for all their outward irreverence, Les Trois Accords could still rock with the best of them: In 2005, they were selected to open for The Rolling Stones on a handful of Canadian dates. Since then, Les Trois Accords have continued to gleefully push the boundaries of good taste—it’s one thing to write a syrupy, string-swept serenade about falling in love; it’s quite another to make it about seducing your friend’s grandmother (see: 2012’s “J'aime ta grand-mère”). But with later singles like 2018’s “Rebecca,” Les Trois Accords wield a potent fusion of candy-coated melodies and scrappy guitars that positions them as the Québécois Weezer.
