Hawk Eyes consist of Paul Astick (vocals / guitar), Rob Stephens (guitar), Ryan Clark (bass) and Steve Wilson (drums). They released their new album ‘Ideas’ through Fierce Panda Records earlier this year to critical acclaim. Plaudits poured in with many critics giving the record perfect scores. The band were even nominated for Best British Newcomer at the Kerrang! Awards following the album’s release.
2012 has been a whirlwind year for Hawk Eyes, with touring across the globe (including Japan and Europe) and live dates at prestigious festivals including Hard Rock Calling with Soundgarden, Download Festival and a headline slot on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds. This was followed up by their track ‘Headstrung’ being added to the BBC Radio 1 Playlist following solid support from the station’s Rock Show and its presenter Daniel P Carter. The single and its innovative animation-driven music video have also received support from the likes of Scuzz, Kerrang! Radio and XFM.
