IO (pronounced the English way 'eye-oh', as opposed to the German way 'ee-oh') is a German alternative rock band, formed in 2006 after the demise of Guano Apes, one of Germany's most successful rock bands of all times. Original Guano Apes members Henning Rümenapp (guitar), Stefan Ude (bass) and Dennis Poschwatta (drums) reunited after having spent time on individual projects - of which Poschwatta's band Tamoto was the only real band, as well as the most successful. IO was then completed by adding American singer Charles Simmons. A debut album is yet to be released, but the band has already spent some time in the studio writing and recording new material. Several samples resulting from these sessions are available on the band's web site.
