The Western Canadian heavy rock band Kick Axe is off and running with its debut disc, Vices.

A regular in Calgary nightclubs, the Regina-based group has seen its first album sell 20,000 copies in the first few weeks of release.

Having landed an opening act slot with Judas Priest in the United States, the young band seems destined for bigger things in the near future.
