Eatliz is one of Israel's leading alternative rock bands, which earned its strong cult following of indie rock fans by the band's spectacular live shows and outstanding music. In March 2011 the band will be making a debut in the US and Canada, armed with a new exciting album release "Teasing Nature" with full US tour followed by showcases at SXSW and Canadian Music Week. Eatliz is considered as one of Israel's hottest live acts and very viral band, thanks to the band's amazing animation music videos. Lee Triffon, the band's lead singer, has been spotted as one of the vocal acrobatics in the contemporary alternative music scene. Recently Eatliz finished a successful European tour, played Primavera sound festival 2010 in Spain, and supported the shows of Porcupine Tree and 'Zappa Plays Zappa' in Israel. Eatliz have a sound of their own. The band's unconventional approach to music makes it tough to label with a genre as every song of the band is an adventure, a toy to be played by the skilled hands of the band members, and a genuine declaration of originality and vision. The music of Eatliz is described by the band members as 'complicated pop', as the band's songwriting is eclectic and combines various of influences, from soft pop to hard-rock elements, brings to mind bands like Mr. Bungle, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Bjork, Portishead and Cardiacs. The variety of styles the band combines in a single song, has helped them gain fans of many genres, crossing ages and countries. Eatliz's debut album "Violently Delicate" was released in Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Israel by Anova Records in 2008 and was played constantly in Israel's biggest radio stations, while 'Attractive' got a massive radio airplay in Germany as well. This led to an invitation on behalf of the Popkomm festival 2008 to play a showcase. With the support of MTV Europe with MTV Artist Spot and 2 releases in Europe and Israel, Eatliz toured Europe (focusing on Germany and Spain) in 2010 and performed at Primavera sound festival in Spain, one of Europe's biggest alternative festivals. Eatliz was the opening act for 2 major international shows in Israel; Porcupine Tree and "Zappa Plays Zappa". Eatliz is a very viral band; it is internationally known for its internationally awarded spectacular animation music videos (Attractive and Hey). Both videos were seen by millions at festivals all over the world and created a massive web buzz in blogs and magazines. Hey participated in 120 worldwide festivals and won 16 awards, including the precious Spike Lee award at Tribeca film festival (NY). In December 2010 the band released full second LP titled "Teasing Nature", to wide critically acclaim.
