Sleepcircle | Rune | Beyond the Eyes

Ocean Park Community Association, 1577 128 St, Surrey

Ocean Park Hall is going to rock on Sat Jan 25th with three local, upcoming bands Sleepcircle, Rune and Beyond the Eyes.

Music Lottery Presents a Night of Rock in Ocean Park:


Sleepcircle is a five-piece heavy rock band based in the Pacific Northwest. The geography has had an undeniable influence on the group, drawing inspiration from the forefathers of rock and grunge. Combining this foundation with modern rock sensibilities has spawned a truly unique sound that will lead rock into its next evolution.

Formed in early 2014, the lineup has consisted of brothers Andrew and Paul Wilson on drums and guitar respectively, Ian Lavery on bass, and Kavian Iranzad on guitar. The recent addition of Jake Touzel on lead vocals has completed their dynamic sonic palette. With past releases “Dead Wait” (2017 EP) and “From the Heavens, Through the Window” (2019 LP) under their belts, the band is looking forward to the future with the release of their new single, “Consumed”. This lead track off their upcoming EP (to be released March 13th, 2019) will be the first to feature Touzel on vocals. 2020 will see Sleepcircle continue to grow through the release of a second EP, and a tour of the west coast of Canada.


Rune is a five piece progressive rock project that began as an acoustic duo in 2014, but quickly evolved into its present form. Since then they have been building their sound into a blend of alt-rock urgency with a heady, progressive precision from the guitar and rhythm section that harmonizes with intricate piano and passionate female vocals.

Four years of consistent gigging and methodical songwriting culminated in the release of their debut self-titled EP in March 2019. It is a selection intended to represent the range of their material up to that point. The album opens with one of their oldest crowdpleasers “Song of a Bitch,” and reaches a climax on the final track with the more recent and experimental “Giant.” This album is at once an ode to their journey thus far, and an invitation to follow the band as they enter into a new artistic space, creating material that expands on and shifts the direction of their current style.

Rune returned from a seven month hiatus from live performance in Fall of 2019, rewarding fans of their recently released EP with purposefully crafted sets featuring a mix of old and new material.

Runes self-titled debut EP was recorded locally in Vancouver, BC by producer JJ Heath at Rain City Recorders. Released March 2019. It is available now on all major streaming services. Apple Music: Spotify: Google Play:

Beyond the Eyes:

This young, energetic, up and coming band plays a diverse array of rock. "Soulful blues with tons style and swagger to spare!
