“…The Flying Eyes appeared and cast their hypnotic power over the crowd.”
The Flying Eyes are a heavy, psychedelic rock band hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. Their name comes from a 1962 science fiction novel about giant, disembodied eyes that descend from outer space to control humanity. Since forming in 2007, they have played supporting gigs with national acts such as Dead Meadow, The Raveonettes, The Black Angels and Dan Auerbach among many others. For the past six summers, The Flying Eyes have produced "Farm Fest", a DIY music festival in Maryland. Farm Fest 2012 ("Farmageddon") featured Black Moth Super Rainbow, Celebration and White Hills, drawing over 800 people to the Carney Farm.
In late 2009, The Flying Eyes released a compilation of their first two EPs ("Bad Blood/Winter") on German indie label Trip in Time/World in Sound Records. They supported the record with a six-week European tour, notably sharing the main stage of the Burg Herzberg Festival with Hawkwind and Jeff Beck. In the spring of 2011, they released their second full-length album, “Done So Wrong” (Trip in Time/World in Sound Records), accompanied by another European tour and an appearance on the legendary Rockpalast television show. 2012 has also proved to be a busy year for the Eyes thus far, performing at SXSW in the spring and touring Europe all summer, with appearances at Orange Blossom Special (DE), Stoned From The Underground (DE) and Trutnov Open Air (CZ).
