The Hawkeyes


THE HAWKEYES (Pittsburgh Pennsylvania) are an American Rock n Roll BAND. Playing a raw and driving brand of Americana-flavored rock ’n roll, THE HAWKEYES draw upon the storytelling traditions of roots and country music; writing songs with an anarchic sensibility, biting humor, and phrases that turn on a dime. While their melodic harmonies and clever lyrics will capture your attention, it's their live performances that are creating a stir. Marked by a lot of sweat Read more on Last.fm
THE HAWKEYES (Pittsburgh Pennsylvania) are an American Rock n Roll BAND. Playing a raw and driving brand of Americana-flavored rock ’n roll, THE HAWKEYES draw upon the storytelling traditions of roots and country music; writing songs with an anarchic sensibility, biting humor, and phrases that turn on a dime. While their melodic harmonies and clever lyrics will capture your attention, it's their live performances that are creating a stir. Marked by a lot of sweat, a little blood, and an occasional busted guitar, THE HAWKEYES deliver what so many bands today lack; energy & passion. Formed in 2010 as a combination of two Pittsburgh alt-country acts, The Jay Wiley Band and The Country Music Gas Station, THE HAWKEYES’ ragged style of rock recalls the crunchy guitars and drunken harmonies of Neil Young and Crazy Horse, the roots experimentation of Sticky Fingers and Exile-era Rolling Stones, and the just-right mix of irony and sincerity of current country/southern rock revivalists like The Drive-By Truckers and Lucero. With this pedigree, THE HAWKEYES sing full-throated songs of a world populated by meth-addled truckers, barflies who all used to be somebody, and those not-so-secret secrets you find in every burned-out and boarded-up small town.

Using humor (and more than a little empathy), THE HAWKEYES shine a light on these characters and their places - and maybe find a little redemption along the way. THE HAWKEYES’ debut self-titled EP features four all-new tracks recorded live at the acclaimed Ampereon Recorder studio by Pete Drivere (Pretty Demons, The Infidels) in order to capture the band’s warm, raw natural sound. The new record, along with a bruising live show featuring their half-true songs of love and excess, shows that THE HAWKEYES are working to find the elusive tattered edges of roots rock. THE HAWKEYES entered the Ampreon Recorder studio in Feb 2012 to begin work on their much anticipated follow up entitled GOODBYE AMERICANA due out Fall, 2012 on Broad Horizon Records, Inc. They are using famed producer, Pete Drivere again as they love the sound they get from him and the two just gel.

Look for the first single, Ricky, to hit radio in September with video to follow. After a very intense set at Rocklahoma May 29 and Celebrate! Fairfax June 10, The Hawkeyes first single, Double E, has been getting a second look and earning the band well deserved airplay and press throughout the nation. Whether they succeed or not, THE HAWKEYES have already made a name for themselves in cities like Athens, Columbus, Pittsburgh, Nashville, Winston-Salem, Youngstown, and Marietta, gaining loyal fans through their non stop touring, always make sure to pack a hell of a punch along the way.
