Swarm of Eyes to play Worcester’s Lucky Dog Music Hall January 28th

Swarm of Eyes will play their first live show of 2012 at The Lucky Dog in Worcester, MA on January 28th. The bill also includes Sweet Destruction,  The River Neva, Ratchaburi (featuring SOE’s Tommy Burke on drums) and Supernaut (The Black Sabbath Experience) headlining the event. Tickets are $10 at the door with showtime at 8pm.

Need an added incentive to check out the show? A new year merits new material. SOE has added two new songs from Designing the Dystopia to their set, fan-favorite “Warzone” and the epic “Journey To the Endless End.”

As if the two new songs and total of five live bands wasn’t enough reason to waste spend an enchanted evening with Swarm of Eyes, the band Ratchaburi have booked a tour bus to bring people from the Boston area out to Worcester! For $30 fans will get a bus ride, beer on the bus and admission to the show at The Lucky Dog. To come party with Ratchaburi and Swarm of Eyes on the bus, please contact either band via their Facebook pages.

The bus ride may include a real shit-show, but with a live lineup like this you can be sure you won’t be seeing a shitty show at The Lucky Dog on the 28th! Come on down!

“Designing the Dystopia” makes PopBlerd!’s “Top 11 of ’11”

It’s that time of year. Not for grossly overspending and obligatory visits to Grandma’s house, but for year-end “Best of” lists”!! Swarm of Eyes’ debut album, Designing the Dystopia, was named #9 on PopBlerd’s “Top 11 of ’11” list in the site’s weekly Metal Monday feature. Swarm of Eyes is honored to be included among the likes of fellow list-ees Dir En Grey and Motherboar. Thank you for all of your support, Popblerd!

Swarm of Eyes Immortalized In Cartoon Form

Swarm of Eyes would like to offer a huge amount of thanks to artist Matthew Albanese for preserving the band’s handsomeness for posterity with an insanely cool piece of fan art he submitted to us. Most bands have to stick around for 10 or 20 years to become immortalized in cartoon format. Swarm of Eyes has only played ONE live gig and has already achieved what so few bands have accomplished after decades. This is just one small milestone on the Swarm’s march towards world domination!

You can view Matthew’s artistic rendering of the band over on our Fan Photos & Art page here on the website along with other fans who have captured themselves lookin’ snazzy in their Sunday best Swarm of Eyes t-shirts.

Swarmies, if you have any art inspired by Swarm of Eyes or their debut album, Designing the Dystopia (available on CD or for digital download now, now, NOW!), please send it to us. We’d be delighted to showcase your talents and possibly exploit them for future merchandising use!

That’s right, kids: Facebook fan art today. “The Simpsons” and “South Park” tomorrow!
