Brooklyn-based Big Eyes are set to release their third full length album, Stake My Claim, on August 19 via Don Giovanni Records. The band also have dates throughout August starting in Brooklyn, NY August 16, and includes stops in Chicago and Milwaukee, with the month wrapping up August 30 in Kingston, NY. Find all dates below.

For those not familiar with the band, the Big Eyes sound is a cross between a punk band with pop sensibilities and a power pop group with a hard rock edge. Recorded during the fall and winter of 2015, Stake My Claim opens with the title track and their heaviest song to date. The song sets a tone of front woman Kait Eldridge at a crossroad, “Cause nothing stays the same / stake my claim.” Her lyrics are centered around dissatisfaction and a need for change. Throughout the entirety of Big Eyes’ discography, there is an undercurrent of sadness and frustration, but within Stake My Claim, Kait has found a sense of acceptance and her own distinct balance between punk, hard rock, and pop. Watch the video for title track, Stake My Claim below.
