Eyes Around Release “Alpha” EP!!

Alabama-based rock band’s first installment in two-EP series includes the intense single and video “Bloodshot America”.

September 14th, 2010, marked the digital release date for Alpha, the first in a series of two EPs being released by the band Eyes Around. Its counterpart Beta will be released on November 2. Both EPs are the precursor to Eyes Around‘s full-length album The Voice Inside the Voice, due out in Spring 2011 on WorldCitizen Records.

The impassioned alt-rock band from Alabama calls for action right from the EP’s first track, “Bloodshot America”, which is also the focus single and video: Bloodshot America/wake up out of your slumber/rub the sleep from your eyes/and stand up straight.

Eyes Around‘s lead singer, guitarist and lyricist Michael Donohue says “Lyrically, we try to be uplifting but intense at the same time. It’s not a rebel statement, it’s anti-political. It empowers people to view themselves as leaders. It’s my personal soundtrack to motivate me to get off the couch.” Alpha’s two other tracks, “Right as Rain”and “Out of Sight, Out of Mind” maintain that intense yet uplifting attitude.

Along with Donohue, Eyes Around includes Daniel Hall on bass, Brandon Donohue on guitar and Matt Thomas on drums. The band’s owl logo represents a mission statement of sorts for Eyes Around, a symbol of what the band stands for. “Owls have an intense demeanor but are graceful in flight,” Donohue says. “They also have the ability to navigate perfectly in the dark.”

Eyes Around, who have opened for REM, Mute Math, My Morning Jacket and Injected, continues its Alpha tour in the southern U.S. through September and October before concluding with a November date in Indianapolis.
