NEWS: Chickenhawk change their name to Hawk Eyes!

Leeds quartet Chickenhawk have officially changed their band name to Hawk Eyes. Here’s an official statement from the band regarding the name change:

“When we named our band Chickenhawk after the book by Robert Mason, we never really, like most bands probably, thought things would go as far as they have done for us!” explains singer Paul. “So, only now that we have a possible US and European release of ‘Modern Bodies’ forthcoming, a new album being recorded in March and us trying to get our own website up, it’s appeared that we can’t get certain rights and/or any of the domain names we wanted to for Chickenhawk!! Frustrating, but, these are the breaks! So with no further delay, we have simply chosen to drop the Chicken, move Hawk to the front and add Eyes! Simple! Everything stays the same.”

The band start recording a new album this month at Ghost Town in Leeds with Ross Halden (The Pigeon Detectives, Forward Russia) and then Jason Sanderson (The Plight and Rolo Tomassi).

“The new album will sound a lot different to ‘Modern Bodies’” says guitarist Rob. “There’s heavier parts, lighter parts, more melody. Our intention is to make a progression not ‘Modern Bodies’ part two.”
