BEAK – Premiere “BILLIONS OF EYES” Video As “EYRIE” Arrives On Vinyl

Chicago, July 10, 2012 — Beak, the Chicago-based quartet band that eMusic described as “majestic” and said their music “deftly vaults between billowing atmospherics, polyrhythmic prog and face-melting noise “, debut their video for “Billions of Eyes” today via Stereokiller (http://www.stereokiller.com/newsreviews/news.cfm?intarticleid=11295) to celebrate the release of the band’s widely praised debut album Eyrie on vinyl.

Shot on location in the Mojave Desert and The Empty Bottle in Chicago, the video for “Billions of Eyes” is the visual realization of Beak’s bombastic Metal. “Scrambling to take cover in the caves of the barren desert, there is nowhere to hide from the billions of eyes that loom over the earth,” explains Chris Eichenseer, drummer for the post-metal outfit and the director/producer for the clip.  “The hunt is on.  From the heavenly bodies that turn in their grandeur above to the single-minded pursuit of the damned below, the only refuge is fear.” Live footage was shot by Chris Rejano.

BEAK – Prepare For Debut Album With New Video Clip; Band Shares “EYRIE” Cover

CHICAGO QUARTET’S DEBUT ALBUM OUT APR. 3CHICAGO SHOW MAR. 31 AT ULTRA LOUNGE

Feb. 21, Chicago — Beak, the Post-Metal quartet formed by local Chicago luminaries Chris Eichenseer and Jason Goldberg previously of The Timeout Drawer, have created a clip highlighting music from their forthcoming debut album, Eyrie (Apr. 3, Someoddpilot Records), which can be seen here:  http://vimeo.com/37183154.

The band has also shared the cover art for Eyrie which was created by Eichenseer, a sought after graphic artist who has done artwork for American Heritage, Caural, Elliot Lipp and others. The album cover photo was shot outside of Monterrey, Mexico where Eichenseer was teaching a course on graphic design.

Recorded and mixed in late-2011 at Engine Studios by Neil Strauch (Sage Francis, Bonnie Prince Billy), the five-track release highlights the band’s adept combination of blistering heaviness and melodic prog-rock.

“Metal for the sake of it just doesn’t interest us. We need more than heavy riffage and the trappings of the genre,” expained Eichenseer. “I wish we could call it something else, because to me it’s more. We’re not afraid to carry influence from our roots in post to punk rock. We’re very aware of storytelling and depth. We’re not interested in skulls.”

Vocalist Jon Slusher discussed the conceptual aspect of the debut album: “Eyrie is the nest of a bird of prey built in a high, inaccessible place. The album is conceptual.  It’s the path of ruin, the crumbling of empires and the marching of time. “

Beak is Andy Bosnak (Guitar), Chris Eichenseer (Drums), Jason Goldberg (Bass, Vocals) and Jon Slusher (Guitar, Lead Vocals).
