Scranton rock band Eye on Attraction signs with M7 Agency (Smile Empty Soul, Ghostface Killah)
Since forming in 2010, Scranton progressive/alternative rock band Eye on Attraction has been through a lot – recording two EPs, touring with national acts, playing in side projects, changing singers numerous times, and going on hiatus for nearly a year before returning with a new single in February and a local comeback show with their new vocalist in May.
Their persistence has paid off – last week, they announced that they’ve been picked up by the M7 Agency, a booking agency that works with Smile Empty Soul, Ghostface Killah, Bobaflex, former Misfits singer Michale Graves (who is playing in Scranton in October), Madame Mayhem, and even Frank Stallone.
“With an artist roster that includes bands like Smile Empty Soul, Michale Graves, and Doll Skin, we’re very excited for all of our future endeavors with M7,” the band wrote on their Facebook page.
M7 has high praise for Eye on Attraction as well on its website:
Eye on Attraction is a progressive/alternative rock band with mind-blowing energy and technical proficiency.
Taking influence from bands like Coheed and Cambria, Paramore, and The Dear Hunter, female-fronted prog rockers Eye on Attraction pride themselves on providing catchy hooks, complex instrumentation, and an intense live show.
After a national tour with Adelitas Way in 2017, Eye on Attraction released their single “Pleasantville” (mastered by Howie Weinberg of Muse/Rush fame) to critical acclaim.
The band’s members have amassed a large following in the seven years they have been touring nationally, alongside acts such as The Pretty Reckless, Sevendust, and Gemini Syndrome.
Eye on Attraction leaves a long lasting impression on every crowd they play for, often being dubbed “the best live band we have ever seen.”
As they work on their next album, their first with singer Jen Fracas, things seem to be falling into place for this hardworking group to take the world by storm this year. NEPA Scene will keep you updated on their progress.
