Calgary hard rockers In/Vertigo released their debut EP ‘Sex, Love & Chaos‘ during July 2019 via Rockshots Records. To celebrate its one-year anniversary, the band is sharing their new music video for the record’s fourth and final single ‘Chains‘. Coming right out the gates, it’s high energy and fast pace. There are no breaks or rest stops. The lyrics deal with being trapped in something you love to hate, and in turn, hate to love.
In additional news, In/Vertigo welcomes its two newest members, Brandon Haddow (guitar) and Carter Bews (drums), and will be entering the studio to record their follow up EP to be mixed by Brain Moncarz (Alice Cooper, Our Lady Peace) and engineered by Kirill Telichev (The Dudes, Highkicks) for a release at the end of 2021.
In/Vertigo also returns to live performances with an already sold-out hometown crowd for July 23rd at Calgary’s ‘Blind Beggar‘ music venue where they will be unveiling their new members and new songs off their forthcoming 2021 release.
Formed in 2016, In/Vertigo delivers non-stop memorable performances at the jet engine decibels of a Boeing 747. The has made a mark for itself touring and constantly gigging around Western Canada. Performing high-profile gigs with international acts such as Diamond Head, Age Of Electric, Pop Evil, The Wild!, The Lazy’s has proven the band as young pros, still hungry for bigger stages and even bigger crowds.
Their self-titled demo, recorded under Ronnie Champagne (Alice In Chains, Janes Addiction, Social Distortion) had a limited run of 500 and subsequently sold out. Their four-song debut EP is the band’s rude awakening in the current hard rock drought.
In/Vertigo is the quintessential rock n’ roll act, who comes in with a sonic molotov cocktail of sound, aimed at the music world who unapologetically thirsts for classic/hard rock.
‘Sex, Love & Chaos‘ is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and all other major digital platforms: Here.

In/Vertigo was founded in the spring of 2016 by local Calgary rock veterans Shaddy Elsaghir and Duncan McCartney who had got in contact with local vocalist Reed Alton. After jamming with a few drummers they found their fourth quarter in Keaton ‘Keystone’ Byfield through a reliable recommendation. The quartet immediately found chemistry through both musical and personal commonly related beliefs and goals. Thus creating a tubules force that would wreak havoc throughout Western Canada for the next few years.
Through hard work, relentless ethic, and determination, I/V was able to cement themselves as rock and roll staples within their hometown of Calgary and the rest of the western Canadian provinces. They soon started to open up for bigger named acts such as Diamond Head, Pop Evil, The Wild!, The Lazy’s to name a few, and gaining even more attention and accolades.
Around the rise and constant momentum that the band had been accumulating in 2017, the group recorded a 4 song demo with Ronnie S Champagne (of Alice In Chains, Janes Addiction fame) that sold out a limited print both locally and regionally within the year. By 2018 they recorded a cut of what will be their debut EP: ‘Sex Love & Chaos‘. This was again a limited print that sold out both within their own homegrown territory and abroad. Backed by a self-financed music video for their song ‘Bad Enemy‘ the band was able to constantly tour and gig nonstop over the next 2 years reaching upwards of 350 shows.
After the success locally and online of ‘Bad Enemy‘ (which had been streamed over 200,000 times on Spotify alone), In/Vertigo was reached out and acquired to perform at the 4th of July festival in Deerfield Beach, Florida in 2019. This marked the first international gig for the Canadian hard rockers, who did not disappoint, performing in front of 3 thousand to a great reception and success.
Due to the snowball effect that had been a product of the band’s efforts, In/Vertigo was signed to Italian heavy metal and hard rock label Rockshot Records. This, along with the momentum that the band has continuously upheld, paves way for the answer in the global market of Hard Rock and Rockn’ Roll: In/Vertigo.
Now currently completing their revamped and polished debut EP ‘Sex Love & Chaos‘, In/Vertigo along with their label and ever-growing team, set out to launch the next great chapter in rock history. Make way for most up and coming quintessential Rock n Roll act of this generation. They are hungry and armed with a sonic Molotov cocktail of sound, aimed at the music world who unapologetically thirsts for classic/hard rock.
