The Illusion Principle is a Post Hardcore Alternative rock band based in Dundee. Strong lyrical influences draw from cult movies, TV culture and their own subconscious projections. The band has secreted references to these influences away for the fans who want to dig deeper while still having musical attraction to casual fans. The band draws musical influence from Biffy Clyro to Thrice via Coheed and Cambria.
The band is looking to play gigs around Scotland to increase their fan base and hone their live ability.
