about

Press release:
Panopticon Eyelids are veterans of Montréal's weirdo underground. Over the course of 7 releases they have shown an uncompromising willingness to experiment: their music flashes with No Wave angularity, and proto-punk primitivism; using the language of free improvisation shot through the lens of psychedelic warriors from all eras.

The band has recently solidified its line-up with the addition of whiz-kid, music conservatory-dropout bassist Asaël Robitaille, who brings a heavy-prog vibe to Panopticon’s already complex unit sound.

Finally, Panopticon Eyelids decided to write some songs and commit the riffs to wax. The result is the Overwhelming Visions LP; 5 long and loud Sci-Fi Prog Punk songs about expanded mental states in our futuristic society.

Overwhelming Visions was recorded at The Pines with David Bryant of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and released in a limited edition of 300 on the bands own imprint Carved In Lava Records.
Street date is November 1st 2012.

Track Name: Solar Mind
Mind is running through Light Pipes.
Lighting the sky with Chrome Alien Sight.
Can't see, overexposed, it's too bright!
Overwhelming Visions of Light Stripes.

Take my hand, we'll watch the Solar Flares.
On the beach, where the Sun turned blue.

Mind's seeking through Streets of Life.
Yeah, fucked mind's a spinning old wheel.
Mutant toughts lives like Nuclear Flies.
Living off Death Traps, seeking life.

Take my hand, we'll watch the Solar Flares.
On the beach, where the Sun turned blue.

Mind is running through Light Pipes.
Lighting the sky with Chrome Alien Sight.
Can't see, overexposed, it's too bright!
Overwhelming Visions of Light Stripes.

Take my hand, we'll watch the Sun when it dies
On the beach, where the Sun came through
