Noticed this appearance of a Drumwolf design t-shirt in the inaugural episode of @tryallanderr0r on YouTube. Big thanks to @large_soda for repping us in the nations capital. Make sure to check out @tryallanderr0r to see 3 buds eat everyday food they’ve never had. It’s #terrific . #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #drumwolf #tryallanderror #ottawa #kitchener #sardines #peoplewearinghawkeyesshirts #terrific
Look who went and bought himself another guitar. Our Patrick @hawkeyepf showed up at our studio The Order Of The Ape with this 2001 Epiphone Sheraton Pro II in natural blonde finish. It’s sounds glorious. It looks glorious. Much like Patrick himself. He’s a goddamn hunk. This guitar will be all over these new songs. Apparently it belonged to some band that was on Sub Pop. Now it belongs to a band that is on @helmetladyrecords and Cardinal Fuzz. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #patrickisahunk #guitar #epiphone #eppygibby #kitchener #orderoftheape #studio #cardinalfuzz #helmetladyrecords #lastlightoffuturefailure
This 1969 Traynor YBA-1 has been on the DL for a very long time, dating back to our previous studio the Sweatlodge Coven. Our Ryan @rye.guitars got it repaired and put it through its paces last night at the studio. It sounds just as glorious as we remember. Now to get the Sunn and Paco repaired. New songs are coming along as well for the next release. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #traynor #traynoramps #orderoftheape #tubeamps #kitchener #traynoryba1 #guitaramps #amps #wearenotadoomband
Last night our Patrick and Stacey lived their best 90’s lives while being blown away from watching @failurebandig and @swervedriverofficial on their Toronto stop of the tour. We are back in the studio tomorrow to continue working on the next record and remember what we learned at this show. 📸 by @natty_id clever flash assist by @mrmikebax #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #failure #swervedriver #phoenixconcerttheatre #toronto #crossbodyprowrestling #lastlightoffuturefailure
We are back in our studio The Order of The Ape writing for the next record. It’s coming along rather nicely. New sounds. Same band. Same wrestling DVD. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #songwriting #kitchener #wwfsaturdaynightmainevent
7 years ago our first recorded output was released via a split cassette with our pal @co.pocalypse Eyes Like Candy project. It was released by Springs Skull Splits and is long sold out of its two pressings. What a package that cassette came in. Here our @hawkeyepf and @gardbarger celebrate with @ssdrumwolf by eating our body weight in salt at Brantford’s legendary Admiral Sub shop. Memories. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #eyeslikecandy #springsskullsplits #brantford #admiralsubmarine #splitcassette #cassette
We sat down in the lounge of our studio last night to listen back to the final mixes of our new album Last Light of Future Failure. Rather happy with what we’ve created. Hope you all dig. Mixes and artwork have all been submitted to our labels @helmetladyrecords and Cardinal Fuzz. Onwards to mastering and then the pressing plant. Planning a hometown release show, but before that, back into the studio we go for our next release. Thanks for being patient. 📸 by @thisisjenjett #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #lastlightoffuturefailure #helmetladyrecords #cardinalfuzz #orderoftheape #kitchener
Hard to tell how our Chris @gardbarger is feeling here listening to the final mixes on the A side of the new album Last Light of Future Failure. Lost in a state wonderment at what our Ryan @rye.guitars has been able to create out of the endless tracks on these songs is our guess. Lots of info on the new album to come. Thanks for being patient. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #lastlightoffuturefailure #helmetladyrecords #cardinalfuzzrecords #cardinalfuzz #orderoftheape #studio #finalmixes
This man pictured here, our @rye.guitars has been putting in terrifically long hours in the control room of our studio The Order Of The Ape putting the finishing touches on the final mixes of our new album Last Light of Future Failure that is coming out this summer on @helmetladyrecords and Cardinal Fuzz Records. It’s been a long haul since we began recording in the late fall, but we think you will dig it. Can’t stress enough of how much time and work Ryan has put into this one to get it sounding fantastic. Legend that guy. Legend. Love ya Rye Guy. 📸 courtesy of @andcarver with thanks. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #lastlightoffuturefailure #helmetladyrecords #cardinalfuzzrecords #orderoftheape #mixing
A tutorial from @grahambywater of UK horror thrash metal merchants @possessor_band on how to make our song March of the Elephants more Metallica. Bless him. Our Ron assures him that’s what he plays. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #possessor #marchoftheelephants #makeitmoremetallica #cardinalfuzz #helmetladyrecords #gibsonflyingv #flyingv
Just a gentle reminder that our new album Last Light of Future Failure will be coming out on vinyl/CD/digital via Cardinal Fuzz in the UK/EU and @helmetladyrecords in NA. Artwork by the ever inspiring and jaw dropping @roan_bateman_art with help from @eiyn.sof It’s gorgeous. Can’t wait to show you all that. Just a bit of mixing left then off to mastering and then the pressing plant. Thanks for sticking with us and being patient. We will then be releasing a split 12” with the fantastic @mothsandlocusts Should be a good year. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #cardinalfuzz #helmetladyrecords #lastlightoffuturefailure #mothsandlocusts #newalbum #orderoftheape #kitchener
Happy birthday to our blood brother @letjasonshred of @sierrariff who last night blazed a 7 minute David Gilmour worthy guitar solo on that black Strat for our new album. What a goddamn talent. We love ya Jason, hope you had Steve Vai dreams. Now onto full on final mixes. #sierrariff #jasontaylor #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #lastlightoffuturefailure #cardinalfuzz #helmetladyrecords #orderoftheape #kitchener #fenderstratocaster #davidgilmour #theblackstrat
There are quite a few tracks on our krautrock-y song Nude Karate. Not sure how our @rye.guitars is going to mix this armada of sounds, but we also have no doubt he will make rather easy work of it. He’s twisting our minds with his engineering on this album. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #nudekarate #indulgence #krautrock #newalbum #mixing #recordingengineer #orderoftheape #lastlightoffuturefailure
Last night @eiyn.sof added her vocal talents to one of the songs on the album. Still picking our jaws off the floor. Absolute talent. #eiynsof #hawkeyes #newalbum #hawkeyessound #helmetladyrecords #cardinalfuzz
Last night @alanaharp indulged our Ryan’s creative mind and played the hell out the harp at the studio. She played until she had blisters and Ryan effected the harp to Echoes levels. It’s a trip. Alana, you are amazing and we owe you. Take care of that new tattoo. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #alanaharp #harp #gettingtobeafewtracksonsomeofthesesongs #helmetladyrecords #cardinalfuzz
Last week while we had Roan @darkbirdsongs in the studio adding his flavour, Ryan cooked up an idea to get him to play while we manipulated various effects boxes for him. The results were cool. Here’s the tail end. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #darkbird #roanbateman #roanbatemanart #newalbum #orderoftheape #cardinalfuzz #helmetladyrecords #synth #effectspedals
Last night our design guru @Roan_bateman_art and man behind the sounds of @darkbirdsongs came by the studio to add his synth flavour to a few of the tracks on the new album. This is a taste. Look out for his artwork to grace the cover of the new album as well. He’s a goddamn legend. Thank you Roan. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #roanbateman #roanbatemanart #darkbird #mooons #synth #overdubs #studio #orderoftheape #cardinalfuzz #helmetladyrecords #roland #rolandjuno

The George Clooney/Ken Andrews of our band, Patrick @hawkeyepf turns 40 today and he gifted himself this new (to him) Danelectro D12 guitar. Things are getting more psych round these parts. Happy birthday you munch. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #40thbirthday #danelectro #d12 #12string #guitar

2018 was pretty solid year in the Hawkeyes camp. And rather excited to get 2019 going. The new album will finally be released, more shows, more laughs, more releases, and well other stuff. Thanks for the continued support folks. Means a lot to us 6 Canucks. Thanks to @mrmikebax for these shots from the summer tour with our blood brothers @shootingguns ❤️ #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #2018 #hellonewyear #mrmikebax #shootingguns
Our Ryan @rye.guitars is feeling very merry this year and wanted to play this for you all. Enjoy his festive cheer as much as Buns and Ron. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #christmastimeishere #charliebrown #snow #merrychristmas #smoothreverbedsounds #someonesknockingatthedoor
Our recording engineer/interpreter/guitar god @rye.guitars let us behind the curtain to see/hear what he’s buried and entwined in “Nude Karate” from the new album. It’s dark. It’s electronic. It’s very Ryan. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #newalbum #nudekarate #soundengineer #behindthehawkeyescurtainofsound
The fine fellas at Battle Vest Bookings are getting the word out about our return back into society after studio hibernation. January 11, we got down the street a few blocks to the Boathouse stage with our buds @loworbitstonernaut and local upstarts Space Pope. Come out and see us, won’t you? #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #loworbit #spacepope #battlevestbooking #boathouse #kitchener
Another teaser of what’s to come. Last night our Buns @gardbarger laid down his Gilmour-ness flavour on Sausage Full Of Secrets while @rye.guitars works the controls. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #gibson #lespaul #overdubs #bunsgettinghisgilmouron
Walking in on @streetknife adding some atmosphere to “Sausage Full Of Secrets” that is on our new album. Pretty much done with all of our personal overdubs, so onto our list of special guests to do their parts. Thanks for being patient. @rye.guitars initial mixes are seriously tripping our minds. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #newalbum #overdubs #studio #recording #orderoftheape #gibsonfirebird #philipkdiscs #cardinalfuzz #sausagefullofsecrets
The process of getting the perfect bend for overdubs as shown here by 3 of 4 Hawkeyes guitar chaps. @gardbarger laid down some beautiful sounds right after these clips utilizing that crazy Paco amp. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #guitarbends #overdubs #studio #recording #gibsonlespaul #lespaul #gibsonguitars #orderoftheape #cardinalfuzz
@rye.guitars laying down some guitar overdubs last night using this nasty little guy as Ron goes nuts. Meet Paco. A vintage electronics signal tracer converted into a rather gnarly and unique sounding amp. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #overdubs #studio #recording #paco #pacoz80 #guitaramp #hillbillyjim
Glad to see my Hawkeyes brothers are still doing good use of their StoneFly devices!!! Who's looking forward to their new opus? ⚡👊⚡ Regrann from @hawkeyesdoom - Our @gardbarger aka Buns adding some overdub flavour to one of the new songs on the upcoming album. Here, he’s running his Les Paul through a @stonefly_effects Grizzly Fuzz and an MXR Bass Octave Deluxe, to add a subtle dirty sparkle. Nasty stuff. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #buns #studio #overdubs #recording #newalbum #cardinalfuzz #stoneflyeffects #grizzlyfuzz #mxrpedals #gibson #lespaul #buffalobills - #regrann
Our Patrick @hawkeyepf held this painful barred D minor chord for 12 minutes overdubbing on @Rye.guitars Jazzmaster last night. Pretty sure Patrick’s hand is stuck in a claw after this. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #theorderoftheape #overdubs #recording #studio #fender #jazzmaster #drclaw

This morning we sat down in pairs in our studio The Order Of The Ape, and were interviewed by Todd from the @coffeehousecrowd podcast. Here’s a quick taste. Thanks again Todd, appreciated. Stay tuned for when our episode goes live. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #coffeehousecrowd #podcast #todddonald #morejazzthanmetallica #theorderoftheape
Our @rye.guitars is mixing up a storm on the new album with the help of Hillbilly Jim round his neck. Heck of a tag team those two make. Together they make trippy sounds emerge from our outer space sonic muck. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #producer #recordingengineer #interpreter #hillbillyjim #orderoftheape #mixingstudio #studio #cardinalfuzz #tagteam
@hawkeyepf laying down a 12 string overdub for one of the songs on the new album. Getting closer. #haweyes #hawkeyessound #12stringacoustic #12string #overdubs #recording #newalbum #orderoftheape #studio
Our drummer @ssdrumwolf adding to the percussive arsenal of our new album after our @hawkeyepf laid down some middle eastern flair with the 12 string. @steveej65 this is for you sir. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #percussion #vibraslap #overdubs #newalbum #orderoftheape #cardinalfuzz #studio
Today we’ve been embraced by the future and our music can be found on pretty much whatever streaming/downloading site you prefer. We’ve started with our debut album ‘Poison Slows You Down’. Everything else is coming, along with rare bonus tracks. Some are rare for a reason. Wanna hear us sing? Check out the never before released title track to Poison. Vocals are buried, but they are there. Keep your ears peeled for more goodies. We move slowly, but we eventually catch up with the future as it becomes the past. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #streaming #downloading #applemusic #spotify #raretracks
@steveej65 you asked for it, you get it. The Vibra Slap, or the rattlesnake as Patrick calls it. Overdubs begin. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #vibraslap #newalbum #overdubs #rattlesnake
And that’s tracking finally complete for the new album and various projects. Onwards to mixing/overdubs. Huge thanks to Robbie from @sierrariff for his continued help in these sessions. Massive help/input/sounding board/comedian/mediator/Ryan’s apprentice. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #newalbum #studio #orderoftheape #sierrariff #trackingcomplete #wetakealongtime
Ambiance is key for Pat and Ron to hit the nod while recording. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #recording #studio
“Willem Dafoe died with jazz hands”. Graham from @possessor_band made this for us and we rather like it. Sgt. Elias digs us, maybe you will too? #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #possessor #platoon #sgtelias #willemdafoediedwithjazzhands #willneverforgivebarnes #willemdafoe

Back in here at The Order Of The Ape. More sounds getting laid down. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #studio #recording #newalbum #cardinalfuzz
Posting this photo of our Ryan @rye.guitars for no other reason other than he rules and we can’t wait to have you all hear the results of his engineering on our new record. Well, once we finish it.

Redid some bed tracks for the new album last night and @rye.guitars pedal board came to life and grew a heartbeat. Going to track a few more songs for other planned 2019 projects and then on to overdubs proper to get the new album out. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #studio #orderoftheape #recording #newalbum #pedalscometolife
Just a couple of buds getting koozie living the high life, order of the ape style. Thanks to @mirandamoonchild for the snap of ours and @sierrariff beer blankets. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #sierra #sierrariff #beer #koozie #beerkoozie #orderoftheape #bloodbrothers
While we continue working on the new album in the studio, it’s nice to see people@still listening to the back catalogue. Big thanks to @lane.chris and @schafudd for posting these platters recently. Stay tuned for new updates on the new album and another project in the works. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #theradiationflowers #helmetladyrecords #cardinalfuzz #sunmask #lps #vinyl #newalbum #studio
The bed tracks are all laid down for the new album. Onwards to overdubs. Layers. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #newalbum #recording #orderoftheape #studio #toftaudiodesigns #vumeter #sausagefullofsecrets
Back in the studio tomorrow to begin work on the B side of the new album. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #pinkfloyd #recording #studio #orderoftheape
A tease. A sneak peak. A snippet. Our producer Hillbilly Jim has allowed us to release these 18 seconds to the world. @steveej65 vibraslap will be done in overdubs. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #thelickening #hillbillyjim #studio #recording #orderoftheape #newalbum #bedtracks #cardinalfuzz
The new albums progress is in full swing now with the A side bed tracks all laid down. Onwards to the B side. These three cats pictured here are the ones responsible for capturing/engineering/interpreting the sounds. R to L, our own Ryan @rye.guitars (who not only wigs out on guitar for us, but has also recorded everything we’ve ever released. Sound wizard), Hillbilly Jim (spiritual guru) and Robbie from @sierrariff Heck of a team those three are in the control room. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #sierrariff #recording #hillbillyjim #newalbum #orderoftheape #sideaisinthebag #recordingengineer #soundinterpreters
In the control room listening to playbacks last night. Despite the looks on our faces, we have another songs bed tracks in the bag. Progress. And wah issues are a thing of the past. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #newalbum #recording #studio #orderoftheape
May our wah woes be a thing of the past now that @streetknife picked up these two Dunlop 535/535Q multi-wahs from @axeandyoushallreceive Now our Ron and Patrick @hawkeyepf have a lot of leg work outs to do on the new album. Back in the studio tomorrow. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #axeandyoushallreceive #jimdunlop #dunlopwah #crybaby #multiwah #recording #orderoftheape #studio #newgear
Last night while recording a song for the new album that relies heavily on wah pedals, became an issue when 6 wah pedals chose not to work properly. Looks like we are buying some new ones today. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #recording #studio #wahwah #wahpedals #jimdunlop #morley #ordeeoftheape
When recording at The Order Of The Ape studio, we keep our gear hidden and a secret. That or our engineer/guitar man Ryan is just experimenting with baffles. Any guesses what lay under these blankets? And thank you to @whitetigervintage for supplying said blankets. Pretty sure they came from there. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #recording #orderoftheape #robbieishelping #baffles #mysterygear #goddamnsweatlodge
@shootingguns remember when we stole your/our Toby? We want him back for our new record. Please. Photo taken at Ottawa PsychFest by @andcarver we believe. Sorry if that is photo credit is incorrect. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #shootingguns #ottawa #ottawapsychfest #houseoftarg #brothersofthenod #wewanttoby
@harma808 is making us blush with all of his Hawkeyes love on this Monday morning. And pairing us with coffee and a mug about Poop, well you are our kinda dude! Respect. Thanks brother. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #coffee #poop #kickinghorsecoffee #brothersofthenod #shootingguns #helmetladyrecords #prerockrecords
According to the internet, on this day in 2012, we were in our old studio The Sweatlodge Coven doing overdubs for a recording. So fresh faced. So happy. So full of meathead riffs. We have advanced and expanded our sound since then. More space, less claustrophobia. Fast forward to present day and we are back in the studio working on our next album. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #thesweatlodgecoven #overdubs #studio #wearentthatbandanymore
A couple of essentials for recording. Thanks again to @steveej65 @connnorbbb and @regicide666 for the underground cross border beer hookup and delivery. @oliverbrewingco is the brew that is fuelling this recording session. Sadly it’s all been consumed. We need a direct pipeline from the brewery to our studio. #oliverbrewingco #marylandbeer #craftbeer #beer #angelwitch #hawkeyes #orderoftheape #studio #recording #jamesgang #witchesofgod #changeofheart #hawkeyessound
Thanks to Andrew Carver for snapping a whack of tasty photos from Ottawa Psych Fest. This one here proves that our Ron @streetknife is a fucking god of rock. We dare you to try to prove us wrong. #norefundstour #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #ottawapsychfest #houseoftarg #andrewcarver #ourronisarockgod #ladiesheissingle #streetknife #heavymetalbeegees #gibsonflyingv #flyingv #gibsonguitars #gibson #angelwitch
More @mrmikebax photo goodness. Thanks again for the captures Bax. Here we are playing some song on the Waterloo stop of @shootingguns No Refunds/Another Wolfcop Tour.

@mrmikebax can sure make us look legit. He’s been snapping photos and shooting video of us for a long time now and and we appreciate and love him to bits. This was taken out back of @starlightsocialclub before our show with @shootingguns and @eiyn.sof the other week on the No Refunds Tour. Have we mentioned we miss our Brothers Of The Nod? #hawkeyes #shootingguns #eiynsof #mrmikebax #norefundstour #brothersofthenod #starlight #waterloo #photography #drummerswhowearshorts #hawkeyessound
