Biography

INAMERE has held the top 35 position for the last 16 weeks on Smartpunk's Top 100 bestselling bands, and has been featured artist on PureVolume's PurePick. INAMERE, of Morristown, New Jersey, is ripping up the rulebook on the indie front.

Formed in November of 2005, the band began as a four-piece consisting of front man James Kelly, guitarist Chris Keown, bassist Ryan Hayes, and drummer Ross Dillon. Several months later, in search of a fuller sound, rhythm guitarist Mikey Vasilik entered the lineup. Characterized by their catchy choruses, INAMERE best identifies with the rock genre, though they boast a broad spectrum of influences including Eddie Vetter, The Beatles, David Bowie, Motley Crue, Nirvana, U2, The Police, Incubus, The Bee Gees and Blink 182.

Shortly after the completion of the band lineup, James and Ross appeared for the first time on FUSE TV hosting Spring Broke 06 with Daily Download VJ Marianella. The success of the show triggered a few cameos in Tattoo Stories, FUSE F-Ups, and Amplified Guide To Summer. INAMERE’s first single, “I Stare”, was featured on the compilation album Battery 173 alongside bands such as the Unsung Zeroes and All That’s Left.

The brevity of time together, they were already topping PureVolume.com’s unsigned charts. Mid-June marked the release of Pick Your Poison - INAMERE’s debut album, mastered by Joe Gastwirt (The Used, Story of the Year). To date more than five hundred of the first pressing of 1000 units have already been sold in three months. Their summer East coast/ Canadian tour included Edgefest in Toronto, Canada, supporting the All American Rejects and Yellowcard. Followed by Warped Tour ¹06 where INAMERE played the Kevin Says/Hot Topic Stage and numerous local NJ shows building, maintaining core, solid mid-Atlantic fan base. With the future geared to embark nationwide on Punk the Clock’s “PROPERTY OF A GENTLEMAN” tour in early 2007 with Straylight Run, Red Gun Radar, Permanent Me ,Valencia, Lorene Drive, Park and more.

All of this in 11 months? The driven, dedicated musicians of INAMERE aspire to tour the world, supporting themselves doing what they love- writing, recording, and playing music. INAMERE will not settle, after opening and supporting major headliners with a combination of multi-platinum recording artists Anberlin, Hawthorne Heights, Story of The Year, and Alexisonfire.

INAMERE is documenting history.

Paralyzed

Written By: Inamere

Lyrics for "Paralyzed"
Children wait for the sign
And you'll hear the scratch scratchin' from the stereo
But the powers' off..and you're all alone
Listen to footsteps because no one's home tonight

I'm so afraid
Of nightmares when I dream
I'm so afraid
Of nightmares when I sleep

Ghosts they scream and torture me
I lie awake because I'm trembling

Like a cold rush of blood to the head
And i just want to fall asleep
But I'm just shivering
The noises start
Hide in your bed
All alone in the dark
Pretend your dead tonight

I'm so afraid
Of nightmares when I dream
I'm so afraid
Of nightmares when I sleep

Ghosts they scream and torture me
I lie awake because I'm trembling
Ghosts they scream and torture me
I lie awake because I'm trembling in the night..

I won't let you know that I'm feeling scared
And I'm feeling scared cause I'm all alone
I won't let you know that I'm feeling
I'm feeling scared

I'm feeling scared

No one will ever get out alive
No one will ever get out alive
No one will
No one will


I Stare

Lyrics for "I Stare"
I stare into the flame
Til' I go blind
And I'm burnin..I'm burning out my eyes

Experience everthing
Don't hold back just live the dream
We'll watch the sunset
From the bottom of the ocean
Burn the cities down just to see
The stars choke I believe
I'm goin insane..Let's go crazy

I stare into the flame
Til' I go blind
And I'm burnin..I'm burning out my eyes

Visualize the end in the sky
The air feels nice when your high
And what would colors look like
When you have no eyes
And we'll all fall down
Hold your breath til' the sun burns out
Til' the sun burns out
So I fall asleep somehow

I stare into the flame
Til' I go blind
And I'm burnin..I'm burning out my eyes

And I promise
I promise I won't
I promise I won't
Put out the fire

I stare into the flame
Til' I go blind
And I'm burnin..I'm burning out my eyes

We'll go straight to heaven
To heaven
