Cardinal Fuzz (Europe) and Helmet Lady Records (USA) are proud to present to you Hawkeyes’ second full-length LP, Last Light Of Future Failure.
The follow-up to 2015’s Poison Slows You Down, Last Light Of Future Failure is a different Hawkeyes. Though four long years have passed between long-players, those keeping score could have charted the band’s growth over the course of sporadic split-releases with psych-brethren Shooting Guns, Radiation Flowers, and their Morricone-esque contribution to the Return Of The Son Of Gutbucket compilation. No longer are Hawkeyes merely a punishing, claustrophobic, maelstrom of doom. 2019 Hawkeyes have no such limits.
Heavy still reigns, but subtlety, texture, and myriad other ancillary instruments color these four swirling tracks in ways previously unheard. The marching, eastern-tinged “The Lickening” brings listeners back to the classic stoned-nod before the quicksilver freak-out, “Look At ‘Em Scramble”, levels all in its path. “Nude Karate” is legitimately danceable, its fuzzed phasers racing to the finish, battling for air with whirring synths. “Full Of Secrets”, the cinematic full-side closer, reveals itself slowly, like a Kubrick-directed nightmare.
Recorded in their northern headquarters, the Order Of The Ape, by guitarist Ryan Allen, Last Light Of Future Failure is Hawkeyes’ finest work. Without fear or pretense, they have finally delivered on the panoramic interstellar overdrive they’ve been not so quietly mastering since their debut.
released June 28, 2019
Hawkeyes are Ryan Allen (guitar), Ron Cybulskie (guitar), Patrick Finch (guitar), Chris Gardner (guitar), Rob Keith (bass), and Stacey Schmitt (drums).
Hawkeyes is an amazingly heavy, atmospheric stoner/doom six piece from Ontario Canada that will blow your mind with crushing, monolithic riffs and dark, beckoning psych grooves. Poison Slows You Down is a mindbending ride of icy doom and madness.

Wow, what a killer album! I'm new to this band, and can't deny that their name got my attention as an old Flaming Lips fan. This is such a cool blend of heavy and psychedelic. I really hope to see these cats play live, I'm sure they put on one Hell of a show. benpachi

"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
