The Flying Eyes
The Flying Eyes
The Flying Eyes are a heavy, psychedelic rock band hailing from Baltimore, Maryland. Their name comes from a 1962 science fiction novel about giant, disembodied eyes that descend from outer space to control humanity...

Since forming, they have played support gigs for bands such as Dead Meadow, The Raveonettes, The Black Angels, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and Dan Auerbach among many others. They also founded and hosted Farm Fest, a DIY music festival in the Maryland countryside that ran for 6 years. The last Farm Fest in 2012 featured Black Moth Super Rainbow, Celebration and White Hills, drawing over 800 fans.

The Flying Eyes have swiftly achieved a notable following in Europe with extensive club tours and festival appearances. Highlights include: Burg Herzberg Festival 2010 (sharing the main stage with Jeff Beck and Hawkwind), an appearance on the legendary Rockpalast Crossroads show broadcast on German national TV, Orange Blossom Special festival (DE), Stoned From The Underground (DE) and Trutnov Open Air (CZ).

In July 2013, The Flying Eyes released their third album "Lowlands" (produced by Rob Girardi and mixed by Chris "Frenchie" Smith), which was paid for entirely by the support of their fans through Kickstarter. They supported the record with a 52 date headlining tour of Europe and closed out the year with a one off performance in India at the Synchronicity Festival.
Foghound
Foghound
Erupting from the Baltimore asphalt in early 2012, Foghound have honed their fuzzed out grooves through the systematic wrecking of stages and eardrums across the East Coast of America.

Their debut album, Quick, Dirty & High, released in 2014 on Moving The Earth Records showcased a full-throttle hill climb of dirty stoner rock that made no bones about its heavy intentions. Seeking from the very beginning to garner as much international acclaim as possible, the album landed itself on multiple “Best of Year” lists compiled by members of the underground rock/ stoner community. But even before the dust had time to settle, the band were already plotting an ambitious second to follow am impressive first.

Recorded in January 2015 in Raleigh, North Carolina onto 2″ analog tape by Corrosion of Conformity’s Mike Dean, and later mixed by Frank “The Punisher” Marchand in Annapolis, Maryland, The World Unseen highlights the band’s growth for even bigger riffs, layered vocals and more focused and textured dynamics. From the brooding opening guitar chimes and consequential crunch of ‘Above The Wake’ to the explosive riff exchanges that close ‘Never Return’, it exposes an entirely new side of Foghound.

Supercharging an already high performance vehicle that sets out to redefine their sound in 2016, Foghound’s powerhouse rhythm section comprises of founding members of Sixty Watt Shaman, bassist Rev. Jim Forrester and drummer/ vocalist Charles Dukehart III. Completing the fears line-up are riff slingers Dee Settar and Bob Sipes, the latter of whom shares lead vocals duties with drummer Charles to remarkable effect.

The World Unseen will be released on 8th July via Ripple Music.
Lazlo Lee & The Motherless Children
Lazlo Lee & The Motherless Children
Lazlo Lee and The Motherless Children are a blues/garage rock-n-roll band out of Baltimore City. Lazlo, with his howling vox and guitar, front this two-piece band that was named after the old blues traditional 'Motherless Children'. With the fast, heavy hitting Cocaine Jim on the drums, this act thrives on their energetic live preformance with catchy riffs and the ability to turn on any crowd.
Lazlo and The Motherless have had the privilege to share the stage with such acts like The Dex Romweber Duo, The Dirtbombs, Biters, Hot Snakes,The Flying Eyes, Dirty Fences and Paint Fumes, amongst other great acts. The band realeased their self-titled EP in 2008, and have been on the rotation of several Baltimore radio stations since. Lazlo Lee and The Motherless Children are realeasing "Dirty Horns", a full length LP, this autumn while on their first European tour, and will be back in the studio recording another EP come winter.

Baltimore City Paper-"This Baltimore Group looks and sounds exactly like you’d think people who grew up without a nurturing female presence in their lives would: insolently bluesy, borderline boozy, and a maybe even a little pissed off. The alliteratively named vocalist/guitarist, Lazlo Lee, possesses a great howl, and it is always refreshing when a garage-rawk power band is smart enough to know that it doesn’t have to reinvent the wheel to lay down a good time."

InterPunk.com-"Add a quart of whiskey to the White Stripes with a dash of Zeppelin a shot of the Sonics and you get this sweet and nasty Baltimore band"
Drone Theory
Drone Theory
Baltimore band influenced by the dark post-punk style of early Cure and Bauhaus, and the psychedelic sounds of Spacemen3 and Tones on Tail.
