In the summer of 2014, The Parallax embarked on their first tour in support of their album hitting 7 cities in Ontario and Montreal, Quebec with Hamilton natives Last Scattering. It was met with many compliments and support from new fans, friends and promoters leaving the welcoming option to come back to their cities. Since then The Parallax has had small Ontario runs, one notably with Quebec metal powerhouses The Agonist and Insurrection in 2016, and performed at Toronto’s Indie Week in 2016. In 2018, The Parallax was part of Canadian Music Week, and was nominated in the Best Metal category for the Mississauga Music Awards.
2017 saw a year of innovation for The Parallax, as some of the members launched a clothing brand called The Parallax Supply Co. The clothing brand acts as a means to collaborate with artists in different genres, and different creative industries as a whole. The website for The Parallax Supply Co. also features a Music Feature Blog that opens the audience to other local acts of all genres, as their way of giving back to and building the music community. The Parallax shows act as a means of physically retailing their products.
Currently, The Parallax is nearing completion of both an EP and LP to be released in the near-future.
The Parallax has had the opportunity to share the stage with acts such as Angra, Dark Tranquillity, Protest the Hero, The Ocean, Intervals, The Agonist, Beyond Creation, Omnium Gatherum, The Atlas Moth, Exmortus, Insurrection, Ever Forthright, Mandroid Echostar, and many other great acts.
