Connect With I.O.D.




I.O.D. is gearing up and ready to hit a town near you with a vengeance!  We've been rehearsing with new bassist Eric and really starting to dial it in.  Check out our calendar for tour dates.  We will also be entering Mesa Studios this summer to record our second EP!!  





The last two weeks have been crazy! We brought in Eric Dickerson as the new permanent bass player for I.O.D. just 5 days before our 3 shows for our debut SXSW run and it rocked.  Can't wait for next year.  On a somber note, 3/17 marked the year anniversary of the passing of founder and bassist Garrett Parvin.  We continue to carry on Garrett's love of music and dream and we will never forget.  With SXSW behind us our next show is back with our good friends Snake Skin Prison to celebrate lead singer Matt Ballengee's birthday at The Red Eyed Fly May 10th!





Big Changes.... On Tuesday 2/25/14 I.O.D. made our Austin radio debut on KLBJ FM. Thursday 2/27/14 we parted ways with bassist Wolf Madore. As with any partnership we all have to be on the same page and although we didn't share the same vision we wish Wolf well in his future endeavors. To take his permanent place we welcome Eric Dickerson in to the Inch of Dark family. Eric is a Texas rock beast formally of Velvet Brick and is a well established local studio musician. We are super stoked to have Eric as the new bassist for Inch of Dark.




We are super stoked to announce we will be playing the Red Gorilla Music Festival during Austin's biggest week of music.

August 22nd @ 10:00 pm I.O.D. returns to the stage at 

Red Eyed Fly

Coincidentally the final show of the old lineup back in Dec. of 2012 was at Red Eyed Fly.  The events of the last seven months have been dark and sad with the loss of bandmate Garrett Parvin.  Instead of calling it quits, we decided to keep his dream alive.  Join us as we return to the stage.  



We are excited to announce the addition of Danny Garcia as the new rhythm guitarist for Inch of Dark.
