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.

    what fucking idiot comes to a noise band looking for music that displays technical ability? go listen to dream theater or something.

    This isn't noise, it's just really crappy music, anyone could make this.

    burned mind is a noise masterpiece. the rest of their albums need to be heavier though.

    @kevinbrian101: You know "impeccable" means "faultless" right? That's exactly how I'd describe Wolf Eyes last night as well. Savage. Really like the new direction.

    I saw them two nights ago in Detroit, and, to my ears, they sounded just as good as they did 14 years ago when I saw them as a duo in Chicago for the first time.

    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.
