Canadian rockers Inward Eye are set to release their debut album Throwing Bricks Instead of Kisses on August 18th (RCA Records).
Fresh off a club tour supporting Sum 41 as well as a performance at Bamboozle, the brothers Erickson, Dave (vocals/bass), Kyle (guitar/vocals), and Anders (drums), will be introducing American fans to their high energy set that has won over hoards of Canadian tastemakers as well as The Who, who handpicked the band to open for them on their past two tours. Inward Eye was recently nominated for a Much Music Video Award in the category of â€œMuchLoud Best Rock Videoâ€ for â€œShameâ€, their first Canadian single.
With a sound reminiscent of The Jam, The Kinks, The Clash and The Who, Throwing Bricks Instead of Kisses was 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.
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.
