The Stone Eye Release Their New Single “NOT MY CIRCUS”. The Stone Eye is that spot on the sun that burns a memory into each layer of immersive sound. Not to be placed in a box, their stylistic music continues to be released with “NOT MY CIRCUS”.
‘”Not My Circus” was conceived following a couple of unique events- firstly, seeing Ween live and experiencing them absolutely shred my (Steve) face-off at the Met Theater in December of 2021, and my buddy Mike Matteson telling me that “You should write more songs in four with an easily identifiable rhythm”.
Experiencing Ween live, had inspired me to try and write a song that was a bit out there for us style-wise, yet have it still maintain that Stone Eye sound and feel. Mike’s words definitely played a role in the songwriting process as well, as I tried not to veer too far off the deep end when it came to rhythmic experimentation within the riffs and keep it relatively grounded and (mostly) in four.
Lyrically, it’s a jab at the whole indie/hipster world following some heat I received for my Doordash on tour comments in the twitter-verse. It’s about as autobiographical as I have ever been!” – Stephen Burdick
Grab a beer, throw up your legs, and let out a sigh of relief.
A new era is born; or at least, something like that. Philadelphia’s premier fuzz-filled rockers are ushering in 2023 with new music throughout the year, and have arrived at their second single, “Not My Circus”. Formed in 2014 by some buddies in High School with a shared love for music and endless amounts of ambition (sometimes to the point of absurdity),
The Stone Eye is a band that prides itself in tackling multiple genres within one cohesive package; usually topped off with thunderous rhythm, loud guitars, and haunting vocals. It was not always this way though, and that’s part of the appeal. Throughout the band’s long history, musical evolution and experimentation have been at the forefront of each member’s mind.
What happens if you cross pop-sensibilities with traditional metal? Or maybe throw some funk in there for the ladies? Perhaps this song needs a hand pan? Why not! With every new release, The Stone Eye is providing new perspectives on tried genres, and that’s… well, cool. These upcoming releases are absolutely no exception to that now-established mantra, so strap on in, grab that beer we were talking about earlier, and enjoy the ride.
“Not My Circus” is the second of four singles & music videos cultivated in a twelve-track album entitled Fata Morgana, which is scheduled for an April 28th, 2023 release. Fata Morgana and the aforementioned singles with be made available through Electric Talon Records on CD, Cassette, and Digital mediums.
