WATCH THE EXCLUSIVE VIDEO PREMIERE OF DAMN YOUR EYES “THROUGH IT ALL” ON OUTBURN.COM
To coincide with the release of their debut full-length, Kill the Outside, out today, August 2, Damn Your Eyes has released a brand new video for the track “Through it All.”
About “Through It All,” guitarist Artie Alexander says, “Everybody seems to be arguing about something these days and we feel it’s a complete waste of time. News channels compete for your anger by baiting people all the time. It’s manufactured outrage and it’s mind boggling that a huge amount of people jump in the fray and verbally duke it out over what’s ‘reported’ on the news. Our society is so ready to be offended by words and opinions, and it seems the media knows people are dying to be victims of something. ‘Through It All’ is about not buying into it. Freedom of speech is extremely important to this band but so is freedom of the mind. Allowing oneself to be unaffected by other people’s agendas or words.”
Kill the Outside showcases a mixture of styles, making for a truly dynamic and emotive collection of tracks. In addition to the metal radio-ready “Ascension,” mellow head bobbers like “Burn” echo grunge and stoner metal influences, while standout track “Low Road” kicks off with a Type O Negative-esque intro riff before quickly transitioning to full-on antagonistic southern groove metal. Slow and low, grooving “Dirty Viper” tells the intense and personal story of a friend who committed suicide by heroin overdose. Tracks like “Punk Fuck” kick it up a notch, while another standout track, the heartfelt “Slower,” brings the tempo down while telling the opposite story of “Dirty Viper”—an uplifting tale of wonderful results after making the decision to change oneself.
New York based heavy metal band Damn Your Eyes may seem new to the scene, but they are anything but green. The band—formed by former members of We Are the Enemy and Bonesmith, plus current members of Black Water Rising—came together in 2015 and immediately hit the ground running. As respected musicians in their local scene with extensive recording experience, the band quickly recorded an EP, released it to local acclaim, and rapidly returned to the studio to record their international full-length debut, Kill the Outside.
Kill the Outside is available through digital retailers everywhere today and also in CD and vinyl formats.
