EYE on The Obelisk

Kemado Records has set April 3 for its release of Eye's debut album, Center of the Sun. The label, home to Saviours, Danava, and The Sword, will release Center of the Sun on vinyl and as a digital download.

From Columbus, Ohio, Eye features current and former members of Teeth of the Hydra and Deadsea.

Online mecca of psychedelia, The Obelisk, has posted a track from the album. Stream Eye's "Rik Rite" here.

The Obelisk's review describes Eye as "melding mellotron-era King Crimson with space-bound Pink Floyd cosmic exploration." In the words of Eye bassist Matt Bailey, the band creates "classic vintage sounds filtered through new blood... born from us jamming for long periods of time."

Center of the Sun was engineered and mixed by Eye at Columbus Discount Recordings and Backroads Recording in Columbus, Ohio. The dazzling cover art comes courtesy of illustrator Anthony Yankovic, whose work has appeared on boards for companies like Alien Workshop, Foundation, Burton, and K2.
