Emanating from just north of Atlanta, Georgia, hard-hitting alternative rock outfit Misty Eyed, lead by the compelling lead vocal of Megan Burke, bring a fresh and heavy perspective to 00s alternative rock.
Nodding to a wide array of rock artists both past and present, the Misty Eyed sound spans influence the breadth of Lzzy Hale and Five Finger Death Punch to legends such as Ozzy Osbourne and Metallica.
2018’s promising ‘Eurydice’ EP was followed by supports for the Hollywood Undead, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and DIAMANTE, as the talented quartet continued to spark interest across the state with an honest and authentic brand of lyricism and cascading guitars, ripe for fans of both the throwback and present day alternative rock scene.
Having signed to 59 X Records, for the release of upcoming EP, ‘Samsara’ presents a fusion of vibrant, upbeat alternative rock and resonating metalcore; urgent interplaying deftly with melodic, as Misty Eyed continue to forge their path moving into 2022.
Rock ‘N’ Load Wanted To Know What Makes These Crazy Kids Tick, So Here Goes:
System of a Down –“Chop Suey”
Misty Eyed has looked to them for inspiration many times throughout our time as a band, however Chop Suey heavily influenced the drums and guitar for It’s Goin’ Down. We feel you can really see that influence coming through specifically in the intro.
Nothing More: “Jenny”
We love everything about Nothing More. Their music is so well crafted and we also look to them for ideas vocally. Jenny is just one of their songs that we dissected and looked into for inspiration.
Tool: “The Pot”
Tool is such an interesting band. We’ve always listened to them, but once we covered The Pot, we found it helped our musicianship so much. We definitely looked to them as we wrote Piece by Piece and we found ourselves pulling from them a lot to get the overall sound we wanted.
Breaking Benjamin: “Ashes of Eden”
They have such a distinct sound and we love the fact that, with every song, you can tell it’s Breaking Benjamin without their sound getting stagnant. Their catchy melodies and riffs have been one of our influences from the beginning.
Evanescence: “My Immortal”
Amy Lee’s voice is always so powerful and is absolutely something we draw inspiration from. Her vocals from My Immortal helped to inspire some of the vocals for This Was Not a Suicide. Especially since this was such a different type of song for us, as we don’t usually include piano in our tracks. It was fun to experiment with.
