Toronto Darkwave Act DOUBLE EYELID Announces The Release Of 'A Means To An End'

19th of June 2019, 11:17

June 7, 2019 - At the advent of their summer west-coast tour, Toronto-based darkwave band DOUBLE EYELID are very pleased to announce the release of their new single. Titled "A Means To An End" the track is the first new release from the project since the 2016 remix album BROKEN MIRROR. The song is also the first track to feature current guitarist Sky Shaver, who has been performing live with the band on and off for the last several years.

The single release also features a killer remix by the legendary Claus Larsen of LEAETHER STRIP & KLUTAE. Asked about the track and his process Claus remarks: “I was very happy to get to remix this great band. It's very inspiring to get to fiddle with well composed songs and put a different perspective on it. A great song like this can take my "abuse”."

DOUBLE EYELID are about to embark on their first tour of the US, hitting the west coast in June (dates below) and the east coast in August. For more details, please see their website at doubleeyelidmusic.com or the social links below.

BIOGRAPHY:

Glam, goth, gutter: DOUBLE EYELID was formed in Toronto in 2009 as a vehicle for the songs and vision of lead singer and central band member Ian Revell.

Initially an arty post-punk project formed with a couple of close friends (Karl Mohr – also known for his Dead Red Velvet project – and Benjamin Mueller-Heaslip) a couple of fateful decisions made in 2011 shifted the project firmly in the ‘goth’ direction. The first was to abandon the use of a drummer in favour of a drum machine, both live and in the studio. The second was to collaborate with horror filmmaker Steven Cerritos on the band’s first single and video “Dead is Better.” Released in July 2012 this video marked Double Eyelid’s true international debut and was featured by MuchMusic, Canada’s equivalent to MTV, and covered on numerous blogs worldwide.

After multiple delays the release of the band’s first full-length album “Seven Years” in July 2014 was met with instant acclaim around the world. Noted goth journalist Mick Mercer hailed the album as a “dark classic” that was “easily one of the year’s best”, while Terra Relicta Webzine ranked it #11 in their list of the top 20 albums of 2014. Shortly thereafter DOUBLE EYELID signed with DeadFall Management for UK and European booking and promotion.

In February 2015 DOUBLE EYELID were included on Oskar Terramortis’s popular 33 Goth Bands You Should Know compilation. May 2015 saw the release of the band’s second video, for the song “Black Box.” Directed by Japanese filmmaker Keishi Kondo it has a surrealistic film noir feel reminiscent of David Lynch’s Eraserhead. A month later DOUBLE EYELID supplied a live soundtrack for the classic film THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI in a special one-off performance featuring Ian Revell and Karl Mohr.

Released in February 2016 DOUBLE EYELID’s second release “Broken Mirror” is a remix album that was hailed in Louder Than War (UK) as a “minor masterpiece” in its own right and features bold new reinterpretations of DOUBLE EYELID tracks by goth and industrial artists from around the world, including Leaether Strip, Psyche, nTTx, Tyler Milchmann and others.

Now joined by guitarist Sky Shaver DOUBLE EYELID is currently gigging regularly and working on the long-awaited follow-up to Seven Years, which is tentatively titled “Skeleton Key.”
