The Waking Eyes
"The Waking Eyes" is a rock band from Winnipeg, Manitoba and Steinbach, Manitoba. Its current members are Rusty Matyas, Matt Peters, Steve Senkiw and Joey Penner.
The band formed after the break-up of two other Manitoba bands, The Pets from Steinbach, and Novillero from Winnipeg. In 2002 the Waking Eyes released a full-length album, ''Combing the Clouds''. This was followed up by their 2004 album, ''Video Sound''. The band has been on several tours, having travelled all across Canada, as well as into the United States and to overseas locations such as Germany for POPKOMM's "Kick it like Canada". In 2005 the group was nominated for a Juno Award for New Group of the Year but lost to Alexisonfire.
February and March 2006 will see the band tour in England and Germany before returning to Canada to record the follow-up to ''Video Sound''.
