special Live performance from Double Eyelid

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 of 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.
