Black Years have announced a short run of UK shows alongside Wolves and For Eyes.
15th Abbey Inn, Oldham
16th Vegas, Rhyl
17th Madfest - Brookers, Chester
For Eyes - We Know How To Do It pt. 2
For Eyes - I Am Hell
After a year and half(ish) away, we’re back to finish what we started. Namely, world domination and completing at least a 30 second headwalk.
We have our first show booked, in Birmingham on November 6:
We also have a new video for I Am Hell. This was from our EP ‘BLACK’ that we released just before we went on hiatus; the whole EP is available for free (or however much you want to pay) at BandCamp.
We’re super excited to announce we’re supporting DZ DEATHRAYS at the Actress & Bishop in Birmingham on November 6th. Sexwolf are there too, and our pals For Eyes are playing a reunion show which we are beyond excited about. Check out the killer poster courtesy of the awesome John Williamson at No Fit State.
So, here’s the bad news we mentioned on Facebook the other day.
It’s with great regret that I have to tell you that For Eyes will be going on indefinite hiatus. As much as I hate that term and wish that bands would just say they’re breaking up, I think that actually in this case it is probably more fitting as none of us are ruling out the possibility of there being more from us somewhere down the line.
Without going in to too much detail, the reasons for this are that firstly we aren’t all able to commit the time that was necessary to do justice to the band. Those of you that know us personally know that we all have a lot of other commitments with work and studying and unfortunately those need to come first at this point in our lives.
Secondly, and most importantly, the band has been putting a lot of strain on our friendships recently and the last thing any of us want is to fall out. If nothing else, we couldn’t afford to all tour in our own separate coaches anyway.
It’s crazy to think that it was only just over a year ago that we played our first show; we’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished in such a short space of time. We’ve made a load of really great friends so I’m not gonna try and name everyone cos I’ll just end up missing people out and offending people, but basically anyone who ever put us on, played with us and didn’t fuck off before we played, came to watch another band but watched us anyway, bought a shirt or cd and especially the rare bunch who actually came out specifically to watch us. You know who you are, so thanks guys! We even managed to make some enemies too (*cough* Hub Fest guitar smashing incident *cough*) and thanks to you too because without you, things would have been slightly less funny.
We also made an EP that we’re really proud of. Which is still for sale by the way. Jus’ saying’.
As well as the EP we’ve still got some other merch left as well, and the debts to go along with that merch! So if you fancy buying something to remember us by then head on over to foreyes.bigcartel.com to help us out.
As I said before, this hopefully won’t be goodbye for good. But for now, it’ll have to be. In the mean time, check out Apple Cannon and The Catharsis if you haven’t already. They’re both better than us anyway.
Lots of love,
Dan, Jack, Dan, Joe, Dan, Dan and Dan.
If you were to reblog our video, we’d appreciate it and shower you with affection.
For Eyes - Grey Group Waltz
These guys are my favourite local band at the moment - lovely guys with honest conviction in what they do and a great DIY attitude. Their EP has just been released and they’ll be touring in September so check them out if you can.
For Eyes are busy carving a path through a new wave of British hardcore with bands like Shapes and The JCQ, making music exciting, honest and vital again.
Intelligent punk’n’roll with a heroin injection of Gypsy chic - just what the junkies ordered.
Grey Group Waltz. Yep.
Sans Souci by Brontide is just an amazing piece of work. I wish I’d written this album!
