Eclectic, boundary-defying, and never lacking in sarcastic remarks, The Inoculated Canaries are a rock and roll force to be reckoned with. Hailing from New York, the “four guys who can’t dance” are striving to leave their musical legacy; inspired by artists such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, and Nirvana, The Inoculated Canaries are constantly pushing themselves to explore new, innovative sounds while making their presence known.
The unforgettable quartet is composed of Michael Rubin (guitar, vocals), James Terranova (drums), Dylan Gross (bass), and Brian Sweeney (keyboard). Coming from diverse backgrounds and varied musical influences, the band values creativity above all else; striving to combine familiar elements with the unexpected, The Inoculated Canaries attempt to make sense of individualism and humanity in the most honest way possible:
“We want to take those raw human emotions we all feel in the darkness of our minds and write songs about them. We’re not here to be rich or famous, we’re here to be great. To us, Greatness means making music that is real, and we are absolutely relentless about every single note. Greatness means learning from the best, but always being original. Greatness is sometimes having to stick up your middle finger to authority, convention and even the person in the mirror… Side-Effects may include crying, laughing, a sudden sense of existential dread, and/or hearing-loss.”
The rockers are immensely passionate about the music they share and the experience they create for fans. The band had the opportunity to open for The Mowglis in 2017 , COIN in 2019 and played ‘Cult of Personality’ live with Will Calhoun and Doug Wimbish of Living Colour.
The Inoculated Canaries also worked directly with Matt Squire (producer of Panic! at the Disco, Ariana Grande, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, Demi Lovato and more). Focusing on melody and arrangement, Squire helped the band to develop their sound and allowed them to pour their souls into the tracks, “Hypocrite” “Sneakers” and “The Lawyer’s Wife” scheduled to be released in 2019.
New tracks “Little Pieces”, “Donna”, “Here Comes the Rain Again” and “Starting Over”, produced by David Caggiano, are scheduled to be released also throughout 2019.Be on the lookout for The Inoculated Canaries’ new content in 2019. Their single, ‘Who Are You?’ is set to release on February 14, 2019. It follows 2013’s ‘The Blue Laws’, ‘Don’t Be Late’ 2015, ‘Jericho’ (Acoustic) 2017 and 2018’s ‘Trying Times.’
