PLAYING CHICAGO VENUES SUCH AS THE DOUBLE DOOR, BEAT KITCHEN, THE VANS WARPED TOUR, AND RED LINE TAP AND MANY MORE, IN ADDITION TO SEVERAL STAGES FROM CHICAGO TO BOSTON AND BACK AGAIN, ROUNDEYE HAS FORGED THEIR WAY FORWARD IN THE CHICAGO MUSIC SCENE AND BEYOND.

FORMED FROM THE FIREY RUINS OF MANY A ROCK BAND, ROUNDEYE IS A PUNK/ROCK TRIO FROM CHICAGO. MAKE NO MISTAKE, THIS IS NOT SCREEMO, THIS IS PUNK, PURE AND SIMPLE. STRIPPED BACK DOWN TO THE BASICS, WITH NO FRILLS, NO GIMICKS, NO GAMES. THESE THREE PUT THE SEX AND STYLE BACK INTO PUNK. WITH LIVE PERFORMANCES LIKE NO OTHER, FILLED WITH ANGER, ANGST AND SLEAZE, ROUNDEYE WILL RUN YOU OVER LIKE A STEAMROLLER, LEAVING YOU WONDERING WHAT THE fu*k JUST HIT YOU, MAKING YOU WANT TO GET RUN OVER AGAIN AND AGAIN!

WITH LIVE PERFORMANCES AND RECORDINGS THAT HAVE EARNED ROUNDEYE SEVERAL FAVORABLE REVIEWS FROM LOCAL PRESS IN CHICAGO FROM THE CHICAGO READER, ILLINOIS ENTERTAINER, NEW CITY AND OTHERS, TO NATIONAL PRESS IN PUNK PLANET, MAXIMUM ROCK AND ROLL, AND OTHERS, MAKING ROUNDEYE ONE OF THE DEFINITIVE MUST SEE CHICAGO BANDS
