December 2009, Stuttgart‘s Antifascist Oi! heroes FREIBOITER split up, after 12 successful years. But that was not an end, it was the beginning of something new – the beginning of ARTIFICIAL EYES.
During the last FREIBOITER chord still fading out, guitarist Micha continued songwriting and recorded new demos. 12 tracks in 12 months was the goal. After finishing the demo phase, he was asking several friends from different famous bands to join ARTFICIAL EYES as a studio project. But soon became clear, this songs kick ass and should also be played live. And loud!
In December 2011 ARTIFICIAL EYES entered the stage for the first time as support of Germany’s famous LOIKAEMIE. Hamburg & Berlin, two shows, 1200 people. In September 2012 the debut album called REVOLT had been released on Knock Out Records & Artificial Eyes Records. In the following two years the band lineup changed several times. Most important was the joining of new lead-singer Tanio, of Stuttgarts legendary OI!GENZ, giving AE a more aggressive and powerful voice. While touring and rehearsing with the new musicians, the band also found time for songwriting. In summer 2014 AE entered the studio for recording their second album I JUST WANT A BRAND NEW REVOLUTION which has been released on Riot Bike Records from Hamburg & Artificial Eyes Records in late December 2014.
Bang, bang! Here are ARTIFICIAL EYES:
