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.
Formed as an arty post-punk project with a couple of close friends, 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. The second was to collaborate with horror filmmaker Steven Cerritos on the single and video for “Dead is Better.” Released in July of 2012 and featured by MuchMusic and on numerous blogs worldwide, this marked Double Eyelid’s true international debut.
The release of the band’s first full-length album “Seven Years” in July 2014 was met with instant acclaim around the world, and made Terra Relicta Webzine's list of the top 20 albums of 2014. Shortly thereafter, Double Eyelid signed with DeadFall Management for UK and European booking and promotion.
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”.
