Re-christened from the ashes of Chickenhawk, Hawk Eyes‘ full-length “debut”, Ideas, sees the band recommence a vigorous assault on complacency in music by making one of the most dangerous and interesting rock records of recent years. Not content with just being part of a demented touring schedule last year and releasing the five-punch EP of Mindhammers in December, Hawk Eyes have persisted in loosing the record equivalent of a full fucking cranial episiotomy.

Interview: Hawk Eyes on name-changing, denim jackets, and how their new album isn’t at all like Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

Hands up anyone out there who until now didn’t know that Hawk Eyes is the name that Chickenhawk now operate under? Well, if you’ve got your hand up, you’re a massive idiot – they changed their name back in March 2011, and you’ve had plenty of time to get used to it by now. Hawk Eyes bloody well haven’t taken their foot off since then though, as since that aforementioned name-change, they’ve toured all over the bloody place, found time to record a new album (by the name of Ideas, with a March 26 release date), and then blown even their own expectations out of the water when their PledgeMusic pre-orders for the new record practically obliterating their target in less than a week.

With all that in mind, we caught up with their guitarist, Rob Stephens, and their drummer, Matt Reid, to find out how 2012 is treating them so far.
