Winnipeg Manitoba Rockers Inward Eye To Release Their Debut EP In Canada On January 27th, 2009

    TORONTO, Jan. 27 /CNW/ - Winnipeg Manitoba rockers Inward Eye will
release their debut EP in Canada on January 27th, 2009. The EP will be
available at all music retailers and on-line.
    With a sound reminiscent of The Jam, The Kinks, The Clash and The Who,
and hailed by critics as "the next big thing", the brothers Erickson, Dave
(vocals/bass), Kyle (guitar/vocals), and Anders (drums), deliver this highly
anticipated EP to satiate their rabid and ever-increasing fan base.
    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 labours 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
favourite bands. The lead off track "Shame" was serviced to Canadian rock and
modern rock radio stations on January 19th, 2009. "Shame" started as a
straight-up guitar riff and morphed into a snotty shuffle with yelped vocals.
"It was too high for me to sing in a regular voice," explains Dave. "It
sounded like the theme to Psycho. We were like, that can be a hook! Lyrically,
I felt like there was a lot of problems around me, and a lack of justice." The
Video for "Shame" is set for an early February delivery and was created by
renowned animation specialist Rémy M. Larochelle.
    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. Although a full compliment of Canadian tour dates is in the works
