Two of Dubai’s most closely tied bands return to blow the roof off The Music Room
Though the music they play is stylistically different, Empty Yard Experiment (EYE) and Jay Wud share more than just a passion for heavy, guitar-driven rock. Two of the four Jay Wud members are also the vocalist/guitarist and drummer of EYE. That’s why November 27th is very much a family affair, with both bands showcasing new material never heard before in the UAE.
EYE, the post-prog stalwarts of the local scene who have opened for iconic international artists like Metallica, Evanescence and Anathema, will be performing brand new songs that will appear on the follow-up to last year’s critically acclaimed “Kallisti”, a record hailed by Metal Hammer magazine as “a sweeping, epic, multi-faceted piece that takes its listener on a journey that very few other bands are able to.”
Jay Wud, UAE-based alternative rock giants that have supported Guns N’ Roses and Skunk Anansie, will also be giving their yet-to-be-released tracks, recorded recently in Los Angeles with Grammy-award nominated and multi-award winning producer, Howard Benson (Motorhead, My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach), a live UAE debut.
Empty Yard Experiment (EYE) was formed in 2006 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The band’s music often eludes categorization - it is essentially a unique combination of sub-genres that includes the alternative and progressive varieties of rock, as well as experimental and instrumental/post-rock.
Since their inception, EYE have built an impressive live portfolio, including high-profile opening spots for Metallica, Evanescence and Anathema.
Jay Wud is a 4-piece band named after its leader, the Lebanese guitarist, singer/songwriter and performer. Best known for his guitar chops, versatile vocals and electrifying stage persona, Jay Wud’s musical influences range from Foo Fighters and Nine Inch Nails, to Steve Vai. He has worked with Grammy-nominated and multi-award winning producer Howard Benson (Motorhead, My Chemical Romance, Papa Roach) and supported the likes of Guns N' Roses, Skunk Anansie, Aerosmith and Robert Plant.
