The Peaks a Montreal based band are the latest Internet download success story. With the completion of their new CD "Out of the Box", this new boy band with fresh faces and even sweeter sounding POP tunes are having a rise that is reminiscent of the British Invasion of the late 1960's.

Friends began trading MP3 files of the demo tracks and soon thousands of fans began popping up from everywhere. A blog site by a 23 year old named Jenny D from Minneapolis has been a driving force and inspiration for others to download and demand new tracks. Images of the band in concert, and a MPEG video are also being sought by young girls who are head over heals with the band's singer Jeremie Benjamin.

Mathew Street, the songwriter and keyboardist for The Peaks is being compared to the breakout sound of bands like Oasis, Morrisey, and The Cure. The other members making up the rhythm section are Rick Scott on bass and Buck David on drums. Though in recent years there have been a trend for young female listeners to connect with female artists such as Britney Spears, Mariah Carey and Avril Levigne, The Peaks are finding their base with young women.

Radio in the U.S. is beginning to be hit with new tracks by The Peaks this week.
