In 2002, the band met with record executives, and ended up signing a co-venture agreement with Atlantic Records and Warner Music Canada. In the fall of 2003, the band released their full-length self-titled album, Billy Talent. The album found considerable sales success. “Try Honesty” was a successful first single, and was followed by other singles “The Ex“, “River Below“, and “Nothing to Lose” into late 2003 and 2004. The band played sold-out shows in Canada and the United States and had success in Europe. The band received Juno, (They won two Junos, Best Album of the Year, and Best Band of the Year) and MuchMusic Video Award nominations and awards, and spent late 2004 and most of 2005 touring. Billy Talent went on to be certified 3x platinum in Canada.
