TORONTO, June 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Canadian Rock band Blurred Vision have been added to the roster of talented artists performing at the first ever WorldPride celebrations taking place in Toronto and running from June 20 - 29. Having recently played at this year's prestigious WhyHunger Chapin Awards at the Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square New York, Blurred Vision will be taking the stage to open the "Decades" concert for Berlin, Carole Pope and Parachute Club. As an injection of young blood in a nostalgic concert line up, Blurred Vision will be performing songs from their upcoming debut album 'Organized Insanity' set for release in the Fall. They will also perform their remake of The Beatles classic "Back In The U.S.S.R", which the band released earlier this year in support of Russia's LGBT community. The song serves as a musical stand against the Putin administration's crack down on innocent LGBT civilians.

ABOUT THE BAND
Blurred Vision is a 4-piece progressive/alternative Canadian rock band based in Toronto and New York. Founding members, brothers Sepp and Sohl Osley, joined by drummer Ben Riley, and keyboardist Joel Lightman, formed the group in 2010. Since then, Blurred Vision has been performing across their base cities of Toronto and New York and touring in the UK. Blurred Vision is best known for gaining the staunch and impressive support of rock legend & Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters, for their first official video release "Hey Ayatollah, Leave Those Kids Alone", a remake of Pink Floyd's iconic "Another Brick In The Wall Part 2", which went viral and brought international press and praise for the band including Rolling Stone, Billboard and The Independent. In February 2014, Blurred Vision was the only Canadian band invited to perform at the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of The Beatles arrival in America, playing to a sold out crowd at the historic Hudson Theatre in New York. Blurred Vision is set to release their debut album "Organized Insanity" later in 2014, produced by multi-platinum selling, Terry Brown. They have also completed the soundtrack and score for major feature film "Manhattan Undying" starring Luke Grimes and Sarah Roemer, set for release in 2015.
