Into It. Over It.

Well, here it is. This is easily the most requested band on here ever, and for good reason too. They have a very expansive discography which is near impossible to fully complete, but here's a very close selection of it. The only things I know of that are missing are two cassette releases (Chicago and Covers respectively), the second Daytrotter session, and their contribution to the Polyvinyl 4-track singles series. Thanks to everyone who helped find all of those. Everything else appears somewhere below. So if anyone has those things, please send them to me. Also, thanks to Jacob Shumaker for the help with this. Enjoy.

Into It. Over It. (IIOI) is mainly the project of Evan Thomas Weiss. Evan's origins are split between Chicago, Illinois, and Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Prior to IIOI, he was a longtime member of The Progress, a band that he had started while still in high school. For a brief time he was also the bassist of Damiera. After The Progress broke up, Into It. Over It. was slowly formed. Starting in September 2007, Evan wrote and recorded a song every week until September 2008. This spawned 52 songs, which would appropriately become 52 Weeks, the first album released under the Into It. Over It. moniker. Each song was entirely performed and recorded by Evan himself. Some of his best material came out of this ("Anchor", "Batsto", "Pinky Swear", "High & Mighty", "Bullied Becomes The Bully",  "22 Syllables", etc.) and the most impressive part being that each song was constructed within the span of one week. Following this, he released a slew of splits with many great bands. His songs on those splits would later compile Twelve Towns. Into It. Over It.'s debut album, Proper, was released in 2011 on No Sleep Records. This is their first release with a true full-band lineup. With a few smaller releases in between, their second full-length, Intersections, came out in 2013 on Triple Crown Records. In addition to IIOI, Evan is also a member of Stay Ahead Of The Weather, Their / They're / There, and Pet Symmetry.

Into It. Over It.'s sound is basically an amalgamation of emo and indie rock with some singer-songwriter sensibilities. Some bands that they obviously draw influence from are Death Cab For Cutie, Braid, The Get Up Kids, and Owen. Their earlier material was more focused on Evan solely. Though a lot of early songs were recorded with drums, electric guitars, etc., his tours were mainly just him and an acoustic guitar, as were many of the early songs. As their career progressed, they shifted to a permanent full band dynamic. They are often heralded as being one of the front runners of the modern emo revival scene, and it's obvious why. They often tour and associate with bands within that realm of music (Empire! Empire!, You Blew It!, Foxing, etc.), but also go beyond the obvious contemporaries. They have played shows or released music with bands as diverse as Frank Turner, The Wonder Years, Former Thieves, Bomb The Music Industry!, and Such Gold. Overall they are an amazing, well-rounded band that everything should definitely give a try, as many of you obviously do. The essentials are 52 Weeks, IIOI/KOJI, Twelve TownsProper, and Intersections.

      ^EDIT: OP here...

      I just got the Polyvinyl tracks. Willing to trade for any of the above. Shoot me an email.

  9. I've got:

    Chicago cassette
    Covers cassette (different sources)
    the second Daytrotter session
    Intersections - Japanese Import
    The Polyvinyl 4-track series tracks

    I just need the split with the Prestige (can't find any info on it online)

    1. Yeah I can't find the Prestige SPLIT anywhere... :(

      Could you send what you listed above to my email?

  10. Hi, I have some Into It. Over It. stuff that's not currently on this blog.

    - Daytrotter Session #2 (October 24, 2012):
    - "Chicago Cassette":
    - Neko Case cover (from Bloodshot Records compilation):

    Also, it's probably worth mentioning that the "Intersections" bonus track is also on the "Covers Cassette". So far, three of the four tracks off the latter release are available here, and the last one we need is the same one as the "Intersections" bonus track.

    By the way, I'm the guy who made the Into It. Over It. Wikipedia page and I believe I found out about the Prestige split single from a website that no longer exists. Anyway, it came out from this old label(?) called Diner State who also put out all those Arbor Christmas compilations that Evan was on years ago. I guess if you really want to track down the record, you can follow the contact information at, which now redirects to a guy named Brian Mietz.

  11. Here's the Polyvinyl single as well:


    A Ghost on the East Coast cover and Embarrassing Facts Version 2.0

    1. Embracing* - horrible typo.

    2. link is dead. i really need a ghost on the east coast please.

    3. Here you go, Michael.

  13. awesome collection! There's a new Daytrotter session just released yesterday, it would be wonderful to see on here

  14. i have the new split with owen if you want it.

  15. i have the new split with owen if you want it.

    1. would be really awesome if you could upload it!

  16. More IIOI stuff that isn't up on the blog yet:

    - "Embracing Facts (Ver. 2.0)" and "A Ghost on the East Coast" (The One AM Radio cover):
    - Split EP with Owen:

  17. Anybody got the 2015 Daytrotter sesh? Please upload if you do.

  18. Standards is streaming and it's AWESOME.

  19. I can't believe how fast you got Standards up there, thank you so much! Best website on the Internet!

  20. Thank you, great post!

  21. Here are the three IIOI Daytrotter sessions. I know the first two are up here already but the 2011 session is a lower quality rip than the one I have.


  22. any chance of being able to get the 'twenty twenty' single off the Standards UK release??

  23. yes please for the twenty twenty track, thanks
