Canadian rockers Inward Eye are set to conquer the US this summer with their raucous sound and utterly dynamic live show. With dates supporting Sum 41, as well as a stint on the Warped Tour and a performance at Bamboozle, the guys of IE will be introducing American fans to their high energy club shows that have won over hoards of Canadian tastemakers.
With a sound reminiscent of The Jam, The Kinks, The Clash and The Who, the brothers Erickson, Dave (vocals/bass), Kyle (guitar/vocals), and Anders (drums), released their highly anticipated EP in Canada in January to satiate their rabid and ever-increasing fan base. The EP is also currently available on iTunes in the U.S. A full album is expected for release later this year.
Recorded at producer Arnold Lanni’s (Simple Plan, Finger Eleven, Our Lady Peace) studio in Temecula, California the boys took the lessons learned from logging ungodly long trips in their van, criss-crossing the continent on tour, and put them to the test in the studio. The result of their labors is the Inward Eye EP rife with powerful anthems that crackle with bratty energy and recall the swinging riffs, shouted chants, and raw-nerve rock of their favorite bands.
At the heart of Inward Eye is their live show that wins over audiences every time they play. With Anders’ manic drum fills, Kyle’s guitar outbursts, and Dave’s command of the audience, Inward Eye is bringing back a fun spontaneity to rock shows. Choice slots on the 2007 Warped Tour and a breakout show at Lollapalooza 2007 added to the band’s climbing momentum culminating with an opening slot for the North American tour of their idols – The Who in late 2008.
Inward Eye is available for interviews.
