New Invisible Joy Biography: New Invisible Joy first appeared on the Pittsburgh music scene in 1997 and immediately began seducing fans, fellow musicians, and critics with their euro-textured sound and head turning live performances. The band's March 2000 debut release 'Pale Blue Day' was hailed by critics as 'an aural masterpiece' (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and 'inventive, creative, experimental, bold fresh and original - a breathtaking collision of art and music' (Pittsburgh Tribune-Review). Riding the success of Pale Blue Day, New Invisible Joy advanced their buzz among fans and industry with their second release -- an self-titled, limited edition EP that was recorded at Globe Studios and Joe Blaney Music in Manhattan, and produced by Ed Tuton (Alana Davis, Maxwell, Eagle Eye Cherry). With the release of their album 'Trust' in February of 2004, New Invisible Joy once again wowed critics who called it 'a breathtaking album of anthemic pop songs not unlike the one that just won Record of the Year at the Grammys,' (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) and 'brimming with melody and confidence - a joyous, easy listen,' (Pittsburgh City Paper). Named Pittsburgh's Best Local Unsigned Band by Citysearch.com; New Invisible Joy has sold more than 10,000 albums to date; and has opened for numerous national acts and artists including: John Mayer, The Strokes, The Killers, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Exies, The Calling, Audiovent, Filter, Dave Navarro, and Hoobastank. National festivals they have played include: SurgeFest and X-Fest in Pittsburgh, PA; Locobazooka in Altamont, NY (InsideSessions.com Showcase); and the MMC, the PMC and Toronto's NXNE Music Conference where reviewers from Chart magazines ChartAttack.com called their performance 'sheer gratification... Excellent.' In 2004, the band was awarded a spot on the 'The Best of the Songwriters Hall of Fame New Writers Showcase' in New York City. New Invisible Joy's fourth album, Kontakt, will be released in September 2007.
