“Tales”
CD
Originally formed in 2002 as your typical basement-variety band of drunks making loud noise after work and on
weekends. A working band; never taking shortcuts, dabbling in the dark arts with mixed results - Io ta has since
evolved into its own unique blend of melody and psychedelic bliss.
With Hundreds of shows, scattered demos, and several line-up changes, Io ta is still doing their thing: shaking
walls with their spaced-out brand of rock n' roll steeped in blues, coated heavily with vintage psych guitar rock, and
rolled in some metal for extra flavor. With a catalog ranging from high-speed madness, to lumbering, crushing
space jams, Io ta's live shows never disappoint. Io ta's first demo EP was also included in Salt Lake City Weekly's
"Top 50 Best Albums" of 2004. 2 years later, their second demo, Frankenstein Earphone Radio God, was also
included in the City Weekly's top 75 albums of 2006
Through the years Io ta has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with many hailed and well-respected acts, including Brant Bjo rk and the Bro s , Eternal El y s i um, the Gl as s pack, Wi tch Mo untai n, Po i nt Li ne
Pl ane, Pl ay ers Cl ub, Ki ng 's X, Po rn, the Swo rd, Pri es tes s , Earl y Man, Sti nki ng Li zav eta,
Superheav y g o atas s , Bl ack Co bra, Hi g h o n Fi re, and many more. The band so far has toured parts of the US,
and played showcases at Austin’s SXSW 2 0 0 7 & 2 0 0 8 and Arizona’s SHOD 2 0 0 6 .
Calling upon the same demon for inspiration that both Earthl es s and Ti a Carrera seem to have a pact with,
Io ta’s debut full length “Tal es ” is sure to please fans of the both the Heavy and The Psychedelic. On top of that,
Io ta delivers both on the stage and off.
