Descending from a spark of light comes the spellbinding trio InAeona, whose sound combines heartfelt melodies, emotionally stirring post-metal and spacey, industrial undertones. Consisting of vocalist/guitarist Bridge, bassist Dave and drummer James, the group hails from the heart of Boston. Combining their shared passions for music and creativity, the trio began playing local shows with an elaborate light show to accent their haunting tones and give audiences unique and intense live experiences. The trio soon hit the road on a self-booked tour playing anywhere and everywhere possible while showcasing their self-released debut EP “Blue Sky All Day,” which featured artwork from longtime friend, Junius guitarist Michael Repasch-Nieves.
Described as having “the bombastic theatricality of Muse with the vastness of Russian Circles gently mixed with the ferocity of Helms Alee” (Bloody Disgusting), the band gained a passionate following of supporters as they connected with audiences across the country. Eventually, InAeona caught the eye of Prosthetic Records, who asked the band appear on a 2014 label showcase alongside Junius and So Hideous. After a stunning performance at Brooklyn’s famed Saint Vitus Bar, the label agreed to release their forthcoming debut full-length “Force Rise the Sun” internationally.
Bridge describes “Force Rise the Sun” as “ultimately a sad but beautiful love story of loss and change, of the universe and ourselves, of being elated to be here but knowing it will all go away, and trying to love better and closer in the time we all have.” While the rising sun is often connected to feelings of hope and fresh starts, it can also be a symbol of passing time, and as such, the title represents their urgent fight to exist and strive as a band.
You can also catch one of their energetic live shows across the East Coast as they join Cult of Luna and Kylesa this September, dates are as follows:
9/1 New York, NY – Gramercy Theater
9/2 Montreal, QC – Cafe Campus
9/3 Toronto, ON – Mod Club Theater
9/4 Chicago, IL – Reggie’s
“Force Rise the Sun” will be released worldwide via Prosthetic Records on Aug. 7
