After talking with Jim, Ian, and Erika from Hawkeye one thing is clear: they are ready to party.
Ohio University has a reputation for partying hard, and #FEST artist, Hawkeye, is expecting that same energy in 9 days.
No one in the band really had a college experience, said Erika, lead vocals for Hawkeye. “We are basically going to get the college experience we didn’t get at 10FEST,” the band said.
To amp up the energy, Hawkeye has some big plans. “I think we might have some free beverages to give out on stage. That might invite some people I think,” said Hawkeye. The Cleveland rock band didn’t want to give away everything for the big day though.
In addition, they will also be debuting new material that has never been played live before. “Every song hits just as hard as the last,” said Hawkeye. Their goal as a performance is to be themselves and have tons of fun, they said.
Their newest album is scheduled to drop this winter. “We know what our sound is now so it’s a lot easier to write,” said Hawkeye. “We are hoping that we have at least four or five hard-hitting singles.”
The high-energy band is ready for their biggest performance to date at #FEST. The group has been known for their up beat songs and energy as well as creating a fun, party atmosphere. “I think the high energy comes from us getting excited by being able to create different sound that people didn’t used to be able to do,” the band said.
Describing themselves as equal parts dance, rock, and dub, Hawkeye is ready for the country’s premier college music festival.
“We are loud. Really, really, really loud.”
