We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Death Eyes’ new music video for their song “NPI” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming EP Si La Revancha Fuera Una Opcion, which is scheduled to be released on July 28th through Three One G Records. You can pre-order the EP here.
Death Eyes guitarist Jason Blackmore commented on the band and video:
“Death Eyes first came to be in January of 2014, a merging of members from San Diego bands Death Crisis and Rats Eyes (hence the name) in order to form what was described by Maximum RNR as, ‘erratic hardcore with serious swagger and no fucks given.’ Death Eyes do not like long walks on the beach. They do not like short walks on the beach. They do not like the beach. You might even say that they hate the fucking beach. They were asked to tour with The Beach Boys and they said ‘Fuck That’ because the word beach is part of the band’s name. With that being said, please enjoy the video for the song ‘NPI’ off of the new EP titled ‘Si La Revancha Fuera Una Opcion.’ Due out July 28th on Three One G Records.”

Amid the angry breakdowns and evil fits of rhythmic blasts via John Cota on drums and Jimmy Armbrust on bass, the energy Death Eyes emits is both penetrating and intemperate. Jason Blackmore adds to the collective turmoil with layers of guitar serving as gasoline thrown on an already raging flame, at times all-out raw and unrestrained and others calculated, waiting to burst forth with new assault. At the center of it all is vocalist Alberto Jurado: a force to be reckoned with, a larger than life personality that has the seemingly effortless ability to take attention by force and keep it for the duration of a set. Lyrics are as likely to be in Spanish as English, alternating between the two fluidly and with fierce confidence. His delivery works in the same way, vacillating between spoken-style lyrics and all consuming caterwauls, wild-eyed stares and flailing body in tow.
