Eye Steal Say's There is No Hope, No Future!?

Grunge goth band EYE STEAL have a couple of release's under their belt's, with more content underway with a release soon enough! They also have plans to perform at some fest's and other shows too. They say much about themselves and music all below.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Remi- I grew up on the post hardcore/screamo scene in the early 2000s my music taste by this point was pretty eclectic but by the end not being fueled anymore by the confines of a genre. I needed more. I started keeping a music journal, Something I could use to express my various other tastes in private. This would later become the catalyst that I would create the first version of the band. It would later fizzle out because of; well life I guess. I realized that although my music had changed, my approach to what a band could be hadn't. I stepped away for a while. When I had returned my life had seemed to melo out a lil and I began working on the next version of the band. I considered these the dark ages of Eye Steal and fans who have been with us since the beginning would have a better perception than me as to how that went. Musicly I feel the band started when we signed to NGP and released our first full length album "Burning out", an album that could sum up my life to that point. An album that had been waiting to be released from me. Around this time Dani Blood had joined the band and we were now a duo. Taking up synths and samples she soon realized that switching to bass guitar was where her heart belonged. We have since left NGP and feel like we are fully starting to come into our sound.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?


3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Remi- Like I said. We grew up in the early 2000s post hardcore era and it was pure magic in Toronto and even more in the surrounding areas. Now based out of Toronto, Canada we were adopted by the goth/Industrial scene for a little while. I have rejected them to some degree as I prefer to be alone rather than a group of people all talking shit about each other, shitting on their friends’ bands, gatekeeping events and so on. As far as bands go in this scene I wouldn't recommend one.

Dani- The goth scene here is unaccepting and unoriginal. They need us more than we need them.

4. How would you describe your style?

Remi- Grunge goth?

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Remi- 2016 Eye Steal "self-titled

2017 "BURNING OUT" (Full length)


Expectations have limits... Instead come to our music without any and just listen.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Remi- Yes. Definitely. We’ll be releasing our second full length album in the fall 2022. And we're both so pumped on this. We've dropped a few tracks from it already that you can check out on our platforms.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Remi- August 27th we headline Montreal GOTHFEST, then I hear a Toronto date on the wind and then we return to Montreal in the fall where we Join Aesthetic Perfection on their American Psycho Tour.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Remi- :| Come oooonnn we both no there’s NO HOPE NO FUTURE.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Remi- Type Eye Steal into the internet.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

Remi-I’m sitting here with my buddy choke and he said "the realness" so we'll leave it at that for now.
