    HAWKS have made a respected art of designed carelessness, all rusted strings and chugging groove, honing what has become a finely out-of-tuned craft following in the traditions of labels like Touch and Go, Amrep and Trance Syndicate. Forming in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, mid November 2007, their raw guttural tone and menacing live performances have since given rise to a strong local and regional following.
    The band has 2 full lengths under its belt : BARNBURNER (2009, Army of Bad Luck) and RUB (2011, Trans Ruin / Army of Bad Luck). While working with Harvey Milk drummer Kyle Spence to record and mix RUB, the band began hone their tasteful noise-layered sound pushing every song into the red.
    Poised to release their third full length in 2012 on ex-Amrep alum Learning Curve for the US version and on Rejuvenation for the European version, also being recorded and mixed by Spence, the band looks back to the first thing ever written about them as catharsis “What the fuck is that ungodly racket ?”
    Indeed friends, indeed.


    HAWKS a créé une oeuvre respectée d'insouciance esthétique, toute de cordes rouillées et de groove haletant, aiguisant ce qui est devenu l'art admirable du désaccord, dans la droite lignée de labels tels Touch&Go, AmRep et Trance Syndicate.
    Formé à Atlanta, Gergie, USA, à la mi-novembre 2007, leur ton guttural brut et leurs concerts menaçants ont développé depuis un fort suivi local et régional. Le groupe a deux albums sous la ceinture : BARNBURNER (2009, Army Of Bad Luck) et RUB (2011, Trans Ruin / Army Of Bad Luck). En travaillant avec Kyle Spence le batteur d'Harvey Milk pour enregistrer et mixer RUB, le groupe commença à affûter son élégant son fourré de noise, poussant chaque chanson dans le rouge.
    Prêt à sortir leur troisième album en 2012 sur l'ex AmRep Learning Curve pour la version US et sur Rejuvenation pour la version Européenne, aussi enregistré et mixé par Spence, le groupe revient vers la première chose jamais écrite sur eux, comme une catharsis : "C'est quoi ce bordel impie ?"
    Vraiment les amis, vraiment.
