About Black Eyes

Formed in Washington, D.C. in 2001, Dischord's post-punk outfit Black Eyes follows in the footsteps of labelmates Q and Not U and Fugazi as well as bands like Girls Against Boys. The elusive group (first names only for this band), who put out their self-titled debut in 2003, consists of two bassists, two drummers, only one guitar and seriously caterwauling vocals. The instrumental line-up makes for a rhythmic and driving sound akin to the Liars while the lyrics explore darkness and violence in a poignant but oblique rock poetry. The band returned in 2004 with Cough. ~ Charles Spano
