If you ever wondered what Jim Morrison would be doing if he was still alive...wonder no more. He would be the lead singer of The Flying Eyes.
The Flying Eyes are a heavy, psychedelic rock band hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. Since they formed in 2007, the group has supported bands such as The Raveonettes, The Black Angels, Witch and Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys.
The Flying Eyes have also created an annual, home-grown music festival, "Farm Fest", in Manchester, Maryland. They will soon be releasing a full length compilation of their two EPs ("Bad Blood" and "Winter") on the German label Trip in Time/World in Sound Records.
The Flying Eyes (CD/LP) is now available for order in the US through Forced Exposure: http://www.forcedexposure.com/artists/flying.eyes.the.html (it's expensive because it's an import, buy it directly from them if you can)
...and in Europe through Shiny Beast: CD: http://www.shinybeast.nl/catalog/view.php?item_id=336474 Vinyl: http://www.shinybeast.nl/catalog/view.php?item_id=336475
...and now in Japan through Disk Union:
Here is a live video of them performing 'Lay With Me'.
