Hawk Eyes, dates and a new EP...
The Mindhammers EP is Hawk Eyes' latest offering. A collection of new material that is positively alive with raucous energy and invention and a taste of what to expect in 2012 when then their new album drops. This is the band's last release on Brew before they move on to their new home of Fierce Panda.
Previously the band released 'Modern Bodies' in November 2010, mixed by Kevin Vanbergen (80's Matchbox B Line Disaster, The Pixies, Gallows) and mastered by Dick Beetham at 360 Mastering (Black Sabbath, Jeff Beck). Kerrang magazine went as far as saying that Hawk Eyes, "make the manicured chug of all other metal bands seem uni-formally redundant."
Stream of "Dead Man's Hand" here:
The EP will is available to pre-order now & will be officially released on 12th December
Available on limited TRANSPARENT vinyl with download or download only.
To support the release of the Mindhammers EP, Hawk Eyes will be touring heavily in November with Turbowolf and The James Cleaver Quintet while December a tour supporting Ginger from the Wildheartswill follow after he personally invited the band to join him:
