Biography

Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States (1996 – present)

Wolf Eyes began as a solo project of former Nautical Almanac member Nate Young in Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States in 1996, with Aaron Dilloway joining in 1999, and John Olson in 2000. During this time, the band also briefly relocated to New York City and at one point enlisted Andrew Wilkes-Krier, now known to the public as Andrew W.K.. The group is rumored to have released over 150 recordings in their relatively short lifespan, on labels such as Bulb Records, Troubleman Unlimited, Fusetron, and Sub Pop, as well as on Olson’s American Tapes label, Dilloway’s Hanson Records and, most recently, Mike Connelly’s Gods of Tundra label. Connelly (also of Hair Police) replaced Dilloway on tour in early 2005, due to the latter’s departure for Nepal to make arrangements for his marriage, but Dilloway still records with the original members.

Most Wolf Eyes recordings are self-released, following the DIY tradition of bands such as Smegma. Their first major release was Dread, released on the American Tapes and Hanson Records labels but distributed through Bulb Records. Other major releases include Dead Hills on Troubleman and Burned Mind on Sub Pop. Most Wolf Eyes recordings are released as either lathes, cassettes, or cd-rs.

Wolf Eyes’ first two major tours were with Sonic Youth and Andrew W.K.

    I just saw these guys for the first time in 4 years. They were all wearing cut off denim jackets, sunglasses and black metal patches, and instead of a saxophone there was a skateboard. It was impeccable.

    Anyone catch them in Chicago earlier this week? I was pretty disappointed that every single fucking track was set to a backbeat. Where'd the one string guitar and TABLES FULL OF CRUNCHY ELECTRONICS go? They somehow managed to make their music even more nihilistic - I didn't think that was possible, and I they did it in the worst way: deep bass grooves and 2 dudes dicking around on a noise box and a guitar. THESE GUYZ HAVE REALLY CHANGED, MAN.

    You should check out Vacuum, Intrusion and Back To Attack then. Honestly, I think Wolf Eyes are not that harsh compared to a lot of noise (still kinda new to the genre though), and generally more ambient but those releases are quite unsettling and volatile out of most of their discography. For me, Burned Mind is probably has the best contrast between being harsh and ambient, hopefully that's what you were looking for!
