Conceived in 2011 by singer/guitarist Dave Wheeler, bassist Jim Wilson (both formerly of international touring act Carousel on TeePee Records), and drummer Panfilo Dicenzo, Pittsburgh hard rock mainstays Outsideinside released their second full length LP Outsideinside II on Rock Freaks Records in March 2020. The release is the follow up to their 2017 debut Sniff a Hot Rock (Machine Age Records) and comes on the heels of the band’s first European tour, which included an appearance at Freak Valley Festival in Siegen, Germany.
The band, now augmented by James Hart (x-Harlan Twins) on guitar and keyboard, originally united over their love of soulful rock acts such as Free, Spooky Tooth, ZZ Top, Funkadelic, Jimi Hendrix, and Humble Pie and have incorporated elements of their influences into their songwriting and performances. Since their formation, Outsideinside have shared the stage with many renowned acts including Wolfmother, Kadavar, Horisont, The Well, The Dirty Streets, Valkyrie, Mount Carmel, The Shrine, Joy, Slow Season, Spacin’, King Buffalo and The Golden Grass. With two LPs under their belt, Outsideinside look forward to their future and the touring and recording opportunities that lie ahead.
