Milwaukee’s Static Eyes joins the TEI family.
Milwaukee has had a strong relationship with garage rock since the mid-to-late ’90s, and this tradition lives on nearly two decades later. Go out on a Friday or Saturday night and you’re very likely to catch at least one band keeping it simple and gimmick free; a refreshing change from some of our city’s more flashy acts.
Static Eyes are easily the finest act in the city to do so, stripping rock ‘n’ roll down to its bare essentials while pushing harder than most, blurring the lines between garage rock, punk and early hardcore. Over the course of the last five years, the band has released a handful of splits, EPs and singles, drifting in and out of varying levels activity due to a small handful of lineup changes. Triple Eye Industries are happy to announce the release of the band’s latest batch of tunes, the “Traps” EP, to be released on cassette on August 25, 2017. This is no bullshit rock n roll, mixed in the red where it rightfully belongs.
