"Laura, Gel and Lisa could be the Ramones' long lost daughters," writes British rock mag Kerrang about Albuquerque, New Mexico's punk darlings The Eyeliners, "singing love songs that sound like they belong at a drive-in movie but are delivered at a pace more suited to [English auto racetrack] Silerstone.
The Eyeliners released a new CD, "No Apologies", on Blackheart Records, produced by legendary hitmaker Kenny Laguna (whose work includes Bow Wow Wow, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Kathleen Hanna/Le Tigre/Bikini Kill). The Eyeliners' sound reaches a pinnacle of rock, pop, and punk sensibilities, on this stellar new CD.
Sisters Laura, Lisa and Gel know what it means to rock. Their unpretentious sound, beaming with sincerity, is a pure punk rock that echoes such influences as The Ramones, Stiff Little Fingers, and Operation Ivy. Their sound is not the only strength, as their shows are full of energy and fun, and will make a fan out of anyone that has the opportunity to see them live.
They began with cover songs, and then transitioned into writing their own material. Lisa made the switch to bass, and they became a trio. Their early shows around Albuquerque were met with great response and they moved quickly onto the punk scene. Through their relentless touring they have built an ever increasing fan base and have toured with such bands as Alkaline Trio, No Use For A Name and The Donnas. They have earned highly sought after slots on such prestigious tours as The Plea for Peace Tour and played the main stage of the last three Warped Tours.
Laura decided to step forward and devote all her energy to singing. Since then, the band has had a line of distinguished drummers filling in for live shows including Hunter from AFI and Branden Steineckert of The Used. Most recently, Thommy Price who has played with Patty Smith, Billy Idol, and currently Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, sat in with The Eyeliners on some dates and is featured on "No Apologies".
Their undeniable sex appeal matched with their melodic, high energy pure punk sound, is the perfect blend of old school punk with just a little bit of pop. From their first release "Confidential", a declarative raw punk album, to their second effort "Here Comes Trouble", and the last album, "Sealed with a Kiss". The Eyeliners are at the definitive moment in their musical maturity, where their songwriting and sound will blow you away.
