Theset (pronounced "The Set") is a rock band hailing from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, formed in 2004.
The band originally formed with the intention of playing only one set, so they wrote a full set of songs in the emo
tradition. They adopted the name 'Theset' for this reason. The band members originally included Kyle Dark (guitar), Jory MacKay (guitar), Dean Rode (bass guitar), and Tristan Tarr (drums). Dark asked Martin MacPhail (singer) to sing for the band's set, and he did. The first show was a success, generating many young fans for the new band, so Theset decided to continue making music. When Dark left the country, he was quickly replaced by Elliot Carter (guitar), who had previously played in local band "Lythic Blue" with MacPhail.
Theset released their debut album entitled The Philosophy of Time Travel in 2005. It was produced by Adam Sutherland, who appears courtesy of 604 Records. They have been touring western Canada since its release, playing alongside bands like Stutterfly, Metric, Armchair Cynics, and Sebastien Grainger, ex-singer/drummer of Death From Above 1979.
The band released their second album, Neveroddoreven, on September 19, 2008. Their CD release show was supported by bands Secret and whisper, Fall In Archaea, The Graceful Mutiny and Bngz N' Krlz.
