Biography

THE INOCULATED CANARIES

BIO

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?’ are 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.'

Lyrics

SHIPWRECKED

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

HELLO THERE
CAN YOU HEAR ME PASSED THE ROLLING WAVES
OF AN ICE COLD SEA
HELLO THERE
CAN YOU SEE ME THROUGH THE DARKEST NIGHT?
OR YOUR SOLID WALLS?
HE IS THE MAN WHO WOULD WAIT FOR
GRASS TO GROW
EVEN JUST A MINUTE MORE IS A MILLION YEARS
TIME IS RUNNING AWAY
HELP ME
AS I AM LOST IN THE ONLY PLACE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD
SEE WHAT ITS LIKE TO THROW YOUR HOPE AWAY
BUT I WON’T LET IT SHOW
HE IS THE MAN WHO WOULD WAIT FOR
GRASS TO GROW
EVEN JUST A MINUTE MORE IS A MILLION YEARS
TIME IS RUNNING AWAY
SEE MY EVERY MOVEMENT MIRRORED
EVERY TIME I BREATHE
REACHING FORWARD HOLDING ON
WITH GREASY FINGERS AND TIRED HANDS
EVEN IF THE STARS ALIGN WE’LL STILL BE RIGHT HERE ON THIS ISLAND
ALWAYS RIGHT HERE ON THIS ISLAND
GONNA DIE HERE ON THIS ISLAND
TIE DOWN ALL YOUR PRECIOUS TIME
BUT DON’T BE SCARED TO SAY GOODBYE
COME TO TERMS WITH ALL THE LIES
YOU TELL YOURSELF TO SLEEP AT NIGHT
DRIFTING ALONG QUIET WATERS
WAITING FOR THE FALL TO COME
RESTING ON THE SUPERFICIAL
IT WILL ALL BE OVER SOON
PASSIVELY FIGHTING REFLECTIONS IN THE WAVES
HOLD ON TO YOUR FADED DREAMS
WAITING FOR A SIGN FROM
SOMEONE ABOVE YOU
REALIZE THERE’S NO ONE THERE
AS YOU FLY AWAY
ON STEEL WINGS
FLY AWAY
ON STEEL WINGS
AWAY

JERICHO

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

DIRTY MIRROR SHOWS THE STRANGER NOW
CREASES IN YOUR FACE THEY SHOW YOUR AGE

ONCE I WAS A YOUNG MAN FULL OF HOPES AND DREAMS
NOW IT’S TIME I’VE COME TO FIND ITS ME THEY’VE LEFT BEHIND

THE NEON LIGHTS OF JERICHO
WILL SHOW YOU THE WAY
HE PASSED ME A DRINK AND STARTED TO SAY

ONCE I HAD A DREAM AND IT WAS WONDERFUL SERENE
NOW I’M JUST AN OLD MAN LEARNING HOW TO BREATHE

DON'T BE LATE

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

Well it seems I've dug myself inside a hole
Seen my cards and I think its time to fold
I can remember what she said
Gonna take my time instead
Does it really matter anyway?
Name your price to put my mind at ease
I'm not mad I just got some kind of disease
I can remember what she said
Gonna take my time instead
It doesn't really matter anyway
I don't need you in this life
I'll see you in the next one
But don't be late
oh don't be late x2
I can remember what she said
Gonna take my time instead
Nothing really matters anyway

COUNT ME OUT

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

You can wage your wars
But you can count me out
Cuz I got better things
To fight about
I told you once or twice
To put away the gun
Now if you'd be so nice
Were just having fun
Mother's brothers Fathers sisters
You can sleep in peace
You've been dreaming of a hero
Now listen to me
We gotta draw the line
They do it all the time
But I can understand why you think it's a crime
They tried send me off
Put me away
Can't hold me down I'm here to stay

TAKE A LOOK AROUND

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

Bring me your poor your desperate deprived
And I'll show you something that kept me alive
Hello
is the only word to fight the loneliness
you feel
Inside
I went down to the church to see
if preacher could help me find Something to believe in
But he charged me a dime So I made up my mind
and went on home
To my bottle of jack and my bathroom floor Instead
I went down to the bank to see if I had enough to run away
to mexico
Where nobody would know that I'm no one
But they
sent me away
The moneys all gone
Moneys all gone (A,G omit the c)
its not about riches or a god in the sky
its so damn easy to be disenfranchised
So slow down
Take a look around
Take a look around (Piano solo)
Down and out
Seems like nobody cares if you're even there
You're alone
With nowhere to go and no one to go with
You're on your own
Take a look around
Take a look around

PRISONER

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

Wash my brain
And fill it with lies
Watching my time
and watching her fly
I don’t really know it but i’ll never show it to you
You should really let me out
Let me out of this box I’ll be good now I swear
No more music
no more love
no more hate
just the words that you say
who am I
who are you
what are we
I don’t know yet and neither do you
Let me be
can’t you see
you’ve made up my mind before I knew
I can’t choose
always lose
Thanks to you

BROKEN BRIDGES

Written By: THE INOCULATED CANARIES

Where did all of the time go
and what have you got left to show for it
you thought that you left us for dead
but we came out on top instead
Where did all of the stars go
as the clouds roll in and the wind blows....
blows them away
seems to fade away
Try to remember them and bring them all back
with electric machines and circus acts
it’s all black
I will search high and low
for the real you that I know
Hello,
is there anyone home
Why don’t you answer the phone when I call
are you okay
you seemed different yesterday
Try to remember them and bring them all back
with electric machines and circus acts
it’s all black
