Round Eye Bio:
Round Eye is the sexiest, hairiest and loudest band in China! The freakish malformed spawn of doo-wop, punk and free-jazz, we seek to help audiences across the globe ascend into a nirvana of noise, weirdness and sax-powered mayhem. With a psychotic live act that may or may not feature nudity/body paint/destruction/degeneracy this band is not for the faint of heart and not to be missed.
Since their formation in 2012, Round Eye have toured the world (US, China, Korea, Japan, Mexico, and elsewhere), supported Beijing legends P.K. 14 and rock and roll stalwarts M.O.T.O., Paul Collins, and hardcore pillars DOA, The FUs, and Ceremony (Matador) released a critically acclaimed 12” LP Full Circle featuring Black Flag guitarist Greg Ginn and won the title of City Weekend’s band of the year two years in a row. They released two music videos, one of which features famed Chinese actress Wang Lin.
Round Eye's new album featuring Stooges/Violent Femmes saxophone player Steve MacKay, indie legend R. Stevie Moore and a host of other collaborators, will be released through Ripping Records and ILD distro in March of 2015.
This January Round Eye will embark on a Chinese tour supporting UK's 70s punk rock vets THE BOYS.
