[Watch] Hawk Eyes - "You Deserve a Medal" (Official Video)

Hawk Eyes return with a brand new video for a personal favourite of mine from their more than impressive album, Ideas. The visual accompaniment for their track "You Deserve A Medal" is a stop motion clip, animated and directed by Jack Sutton. It's definitely a good thing to point your eyes towards if you're feeling a little sleepy and out of it. Guaranteed to put a spring in your step*. I bumped into Paul at a show a few weeks ago and had a brief chat about new material and all I'll say at this point is that what he described sounds very bloody good and is sure to impress old and new fans alike.

Ideas is out now.

*Not actually guaranteed to put a spring in your step. We're not miracle workers.


[Watch] Hawk Eyes - "Witch Hunt" (Official Video)

Hawk Eyes have been a firm personal favourite of mine ever since I first heard their album Modern Bodies a few years back. Then they followed that up at the start of 2012 with Ideas, an album that's had heavy play from me all year. It's now rolling on to December and they're showing no signs of slowing down as they've released the video for album highlight, "Witch Hunt", just now via NME. You can catch the video up at the top.

The single will be released on the 3rd of December and you can catch the band on tour with Therapy right now around the UK. You'd be a fool to miss it as they've stated it's the last time they'll be performing for a while. Dates can be found over here along with their video for "Kiss This". Turn it up loud.


[Watch] Hawk Eyes - "Kiss This" (Official Video)

Hawk Eyes brought out the brilliantly riff heavy sophomore album Ideas at the start of the year and I've been blasting it regularly ever since and rumour has it they're going to begin recording some new material very soon. First though they've gone and found some time to record a video for the track "Kiss This". It takes place in a lift, yes a lift. Imagine dragging your tired ass to work one morning, hitting the button for the lift to go and sit at your desk at a job you don't want to do to find these guys rocking out at a deafening volume. It'd be bloody fantastic! 

If you like what you see/hear I highly recommend you check the lads out on tour while you can. They have a fair few left this year including Damnation Fest in a few days and two months of dates with Therapy?

[Watch] Hawk Eyes Live at Reading Festival

It was a very fun weekend for me last weekend, not only was it a Bank Holiday here in the UK but I spent my weekend in a field with some of the best people I know at Leeds Festival. On Sunday night before enjoying At The Drive In play the NME Stage I got to watch a firm favourite of mine Hawk Eyes tear through a great set on the BBC Introducing stage. We've spoke about them a lot in the past year or so but if you're still not familiar hit play above and get your daily fill of riff courtesy of BBC Introducing. The security deny Paul his usual pit antics during "Bears By The Head" but a great performance none the less.


[Watch] Hawk Eyes - "Headstrung"

Hawk Eyes have offered up the brand new visual accompaniment to their catchy new single "Headstrung" which appears on their great sophomore album, Ideas. The brightly coloured video sees the band surrounded by all kinds of creepy crawlies and fictional madness. They end up in the belly of the beast and you can catch all the crazy trippy goings on above via Classic Rock Magazine.


[Download] Hawk Eyes - "Just One More Thing"

After unleashing their storming album IDEAS upon us a few months back in March, Hawk Eyes have been going from strength to strength. This pleases us greatly. What pleases us more is that the band have now offered up a brand new, non-album track for free download called "Just One More Thing". Pretty sweet deal huh? Hit play below and grab the download while you're at it. The band will be playing Brighton's Great Escape this weekend, more details of which can be found over here.


[Listen] Hawk Eyes - 'Ideas' (Full Album Stream)

Next week, Hawk Eyes will release their fantastic new album Ideas via their new label Fierce Panda. Packed full of heavy riffs and enough gut churning bass to wake you up on any day of the week, give it a full stream a week before it's set to release on the 26th of March below and head over here to pre-order the album. Tonight the band will show London what they're worth at The Buffalo Bar at their album launch show. It's sure to be a good'un.

On a side note, the band have parted ways with their drummer Matt Reid but fear not as they've only gone and got an equally awesome replacement in the shape of Steve Wilson who's played with the likes of Dinosaur Pile Up and Japanese Voyeurs.

Also, in case you missed it, we caught up with the band and had a great chat about their recording process along with some random things too! It's up over here for your reading pleasure.
