Blind Eyes News, June 28th

Well, happy Tuesday to all of you. A few quick and awesome things to note:

-For the third week in a row, "With A Bang" is #1 on the KDHX CMJ Top 30! On a similar note, the album is also #3 in mid-year national top album spins and #1 in the local top album spins- and has made many a' DJ's "top 10 albums" list. Not bad for only being out for 19 days! Immense thanks!

-We're happy to announce we will be playing with our friends Old Lights for their record release party at Off Broadway on Friday, July 15th. Advance tickets available here.

-Thomas Crone's excellent city-centric blog, The South Side of Luck, recently featured a nice little shout-out to With A Bang. Go check it out!

-In addition to being currently available on CD Baby and iTunes, the new album is also now available to download on Napster.

The Blind Eyes: Haikulou

Another one that slipped under the radar. A haiku? About lil' ole' us? How awesome is that. We had one person create us a "Blind Eyes" sculpture, but this is without doubt our first piece of Japanese poetry. We're flattered.

"With A Bang" #3 At Euclid Records

We're honored to be among the top sellers for the week at Euclid Records, one of our favorite of St. Louis' many amazing record stores. I guess we can accept Neil Young selling more than us. But My Morning Jacket? You'd better grow eyes in the back of your head, 'cause we're coming for you. Just kidding, you guys are great. Don't beat us up.

"Hermetically Sealed" On "Speakers + Summer Vol. 2"

"Hermetically Sealed" is featured on Speakers In Code's annual free ringing-in-the-summer album, Speakers + Summer, Volume 2- and it's the first track, no less! The whole thing is chock full of awesomeness (The Elected, Black Lips, and Toro y Moi are just some of the jams you can snag), so don't wait.

#1 On CMJ Top 30 Charts, Week 2

For the second week in a row, "With A Bang" is sitting at the #1 spot on the CMJ Top 30 charts! Massive thanks once again to KDHX, and to all of you for supporting the album!

"With A Bang" Available Now On iTunes

All you iPhone users rejoice! "With A Bang" is now available on iTunes. Unfortunately, the Blind Eyes are still working through their 10-year "RAZR" endorsement deal, which didn't turn out to be the best business move in hindsight. Seemed like a good idea at the time. Maybe we can get it as a ringtone?

Stream The Blind Eyes KDHX Live Set/Interview

Our recent live set and interview with Rob Levy (plus photos by Kate McDaniel) on "Juxtaposition" is now online and available to stream. KDHX says:

The Blind Eyes wide variety of influences are noticeable in their songs, giving the listener flashbacks to all those great sounds of the past in a fresh and modern format that runs the field from the Blake Babies to Tom Petty with stops at just about all points in between. Seth Porter’s guitar and vocals blend well with the rhythm section of bassist/vocalist Kevin Schneider and drummer Matt Picker, resulting in thoroughly enjoyable, even danceable, rock & roll experience.

RFT Music Showcase Review & Photos

Thanks to everyone who came out and partied with us at this year's RFT Music Showcase this past Saturday! We had the best time ever, and judging by the turnout all night, so did you. Here's a cool review of our set courtesy of 3 Minute Record and some pics of the event as well. Hope you voted for us as "Best Rock Band" for 2011, but even if you didn't, we still love you. Just not as much as before.
