Announce New Album "Hot Shoulders" - August 21st on Emergency Umbrella!
"A rambunctious smorgasbord of funk beats, killer metal riffs, and screaming outbursts, with unbridled vigor belying the band's goofball subject matter." - Flavorpill
"Bald Eagle accomplishes a lot by picking and choosing elements of hardcore, hard rock, emo, soul, and even a bit of Sly Stone-style psychedelic funk for its tracks." - Punk Planet
"A hell raising combination of Tiger Style Records-era Rye Coalition, The Jesus Lizard, and Chicago's Cougars." - The Daily Copper
Columbia, Misssouri's BALD EAGLE are a strange and mysterious brew who's brand of rock madness is practically unmatched by any bands hailing from the big city. They play fast, guitar driven, musical equivalents of muscle spasms or brain aneurisms, one might equate to the groundbreaking sounds of Swing Kids or Nation of Ulysses. Some might call this, just not givin' a f*ck. Still others might see this as a dizzying assault of technicality and full frontal nudity.
BALD EAGLE are fans of, and draw influences from, indie-punk stars Drive Like Jehu and Hoover, and 70's psychadelia legends Deep Purple and Yes, whose elements can be heard throughout their new (and second) full length album "Hot Shoulders" (out August 21st on Emergency Umbrella). Most songs coalesce with mixtures of improvisational jazz and European hardcore (see the Refused / JR Ewing) and whose subject matter include things like cobras, eating pizza, fear of sharks, The Princess Bride, transvestites, and shady, creepy people.
What's more, BALD EAGLE seriously like ripping-it live. Past performances include dates w/ !!!, Call Me Lightning, The Apes, The Paper Chase, Ad Astra Per Aspera, and others, and already have set in place a slew of Summer and Fall dates lined up to support their new album.
There are many ways to describe BALD EAGLE, but one thing is for certain, TURN THEM SHITS UP!
