Canadian hard-rockers IN/VERTIGO have signed a worldwide record deal with ROCKSHOTS RECORDS, for the release of their debut EP “Sex Love & Chaos“, coming out July 16.
Formed in 2016 by local Calgary rock veterans, IN/VERTIGO started right away to create a turbulent force that wrecked havoc throughout Western Canada in the recent past years. The band was able to constantly tour and gig for over two years reaching upwards of 350 shows, even opening for bigger bands such as Diamond Head, Pop Evil, The Wild!, The Lazy’s.
The first single off the new EP “Bad Enemy” is available for streaming and download, paired with an official music video

In/Vertigo comments on “Bad Enemy”: “The first single from Sex, Love & Chaos: we feel this song showcases an all-around view of the band performance wise and musically. This song stemmed from a negative encounter turned humorous and full of karma on one of our tours. This spawned the idea, ‘I’m not a good friend, I’m a bad enemy’!”
With their revamped and polished debut ep, IN/VERTIGO set out to launch the next great chapter in rock history, making 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.

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.
