"Love Like Machines" serves another round of the Heavy Eyes' heady brew of tight riffs and Southern croon.
MEMPHIS, TN - "Love Like Machines" is the newest album from stoner rock veterans the Heavy Eyes. This is the firs release of new material since 2015's critically acclaimed "He Dreams of Lions". The music was recorded in sessions in New Mexico and their hometown of Memphis and produced by Matt Qualls, who has also worked with Dirty Streets, Cold Stares, Hash Redactor, Joy, and many more.
Despite the rabid reception of their first three albums, "Love Like Machines" almost never existed. By 2017, the band was on pause, with each member living in a different state. Spread across the Southwest and Midwest, there were new jobs, new cities, a marriage, and even a diagnosis. In short, there was every indication that the pause might become permanent. But by 2019, the Heavy Eyes had found a second guitarist and a second wind. The band was actively working on new material, exchanging beats, licks, and lyrics over long-distance. After two bouts of recording the record is here, five years in the making.
The Heavy Eyes have not let the time go to waste. "Love Like Machines" continues their signature sound: riffs that interlock like clockwork, rollicking drums and bass, and a Southern drawl that floats above it all like a ghost lost in a storm. But the new album delivers more than more of the same. After ten years together the band ventures into virgin territory. New sounds and structures await the listener. The songs sing of doomed armies, of lost loves, and of course, of that damn meddling Wolfman. In short, there is something here for everyone: the bellicose, the poignant, the absurd.
The band is currently booking an EU tour for early October 2020 with it’s first show announcement as, Keep it Low Festival in München, Germany. More dates to follow.
