    "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 3 full lengths under its belt :
    BARNBURNER (2009, Army of Bad Luck), RUB (2011, Trans Ruin / Army of Bad Luck) and PUSHOVER (2012, ex-Amrep alum Learning Curve (US) / Rejuvenation (Europe).

    They have played a shit ton of shows, along side a ton of amazing and sometimes horrible bands. Some of the better ones would include:
    Floor (toured in direct support), Torche, These Arms are Snakes, Whores., Lo Pan, Blind Shake, Gay Witch Abortion, Russian Circles, Scratch Acid, Coliseum, Young Widows, Man Or AstroMan, Helms Alee, All the Saints, New Brutalism, Weedeater, Poison Arrows, My Disco, Human Eye, Future of The Left, DD/MM/YYYY, Aids Wolf, Thank God, Pygmy Lush, New Brutalism, Lords, Chinese Stars, Red Sparrows, Doomriders, Harvey Milk, Fucked Up , Jeff The Brotherhood, Vaz, Black Skies, Rice, Monotonix, Grids, Buildings, Pygmy Shrews, Royal Thunder, Fight Amp, Extra Life, Yukon, Calabi Yua, Yard Work, Wizardry, The Coathangers, Fang, Island, High Castle, Shitstorm, Magrudergrind, Café Flesh, Ultracoït, Pord, Silent Front, Electric Electric, etc.

    In 2013, following there first Europe tour with brothers in arms Café Flesh, the band hurried back into the studio home of long time friend and Harvey Milk drummer Kyle Spence to record a series of tracks that would make their way on to a split 7" with fellow noise stranglers Buildings (Cash Cow Records) and the S/T 7" RATTALKER / SMILE (Army of Bad Luck).

    For 2014, while writing and structuring the newest full length, the band decided to unleash 5 new tracks and 6 previously released tracks on an all new full length, because why the fuck not. The record was recorded in the same room every song has been written. Where every fight has started and ended, where hopes go to die.

    Check list:
    8 microphones
    4 cases of beer
    2 dime bags
    3 bottles of whiskey
    a carton of cigs a general hate for the youth of today
    4 boys
    3 blown speakers
    10 broken cables mixer tape

    This was the recipe for what will be their fourth album, plainly entitled "HAWKS", a snapshot of the process and an unfiltered glimpse into the world they create and representing the evolution of what the band has became. Released on a limited vinyl on run of just 250 copies and exclusively released in Europe on Rejuvenation, April 20th 2014, the first date of their new European tour.
    "Listen loudly and stay shitty." -HAWKS



    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, Georgie, 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 trois albums sous la ceinture :
    BARNBURNER (2009, Army Of Bad Luck), RUB (2011, Trans Ruin / Army Of Bad Luck) et PUSHOVER (2012, ex AmRep Learning Curve pour la version US et Rejuvenation pour la version Européenne).

    Le groupe a joué des tonnes de concerts, avec de supers et parfois horribles groupes. Parmi les meilleurs :
    Floor (toute une tournée), Torche, These Arms are Snakes, Whores., Lo Pan, Blind Shake, Gay Witch Abortion, Russian Circles, Scratch Acid, Coliseum, Young Widows, Man Or AstroMan, Helms Alee, All the Saints, New Brutalism, Weedeater, Poison Arrows, My Disco, Human Eye, Future of The Left, DD/MM/YYYY, Aids Wolf, Thank God, Pygmy Lush, New Brutalism, Lords, Chinese Stars, Red Sparrows, Doomriders, Harvey Milk, Fucked Up , Jeff The Brotherhood, Vaz, Black Skies, Rice, Monotonix, Grids (RIP brothers), Buildings, Pygmy Shrews, Royal Thunder, Fight Amp, Extra Life, Yukon, Calabi Yua, Yard Work, Wizardry, The Coathangers, Fang, Island, High Castle, Shitstorm, Magrudergrind, Café Flesh, Ultracoït, Pord, Silent Front, Electric Electric, etc.

    En 2013, fort de sa première tournée en France (en compagnie de leurs camarades Café Flesh) et du grand soutien que l'Europe lui a montré suite à PUSHOVER, le groupe retourne en studio avec son ami Kyle Spence, batteur des excellents Harvey Milk, pour enregistrer une série de nouveaux morceaux qui se retrouveront sur un split 7" avec les amis Buildings (Cash Cow Records) et sur le 7" RATTALKER / SMILE (Army of Bad Luck).

    En 2014, lors de l'écriture de son prochain album, le groupe décide de prendre 5 nouveaux titres et 6 déjà sortis précédemment et de les mettre ensemble sur un nouveau disque, parce que bordel, pourquoi pas ? Le disque a ainsi été enregistré live dans la même pièce que là où tous ces titres ont été composés, le local du groupe, là où chaque combat a commencé et terminé, où les espoirs vont mourir.

    Liste du matériel :
    8 microphones
    4 caisses de bières.
    2 dime bags
    3 bouteilles de whisky
    1 carton de cigares et une haine générale envers les jeunes d'aujourd'hui.
    4 garçons
    3 enceintes
    10 câbles cassés

    Ce fut la recette pour ce qui sera leur quatrième album, simplement intitulé "Hawks", un instantané d'énergie et un aperçu de l'univers du groupe représentant parfaitement son évolution. Il paraitra sur un vinyl limité à seulement 250 exemplaires et exclusivement distribués en Europe sur Rejuvenation, le 20 Avril 2014, première date de leur nouvelle tournée européenne.
