Last month we took a break from recording our new album and sat down at the studio in pairs with Todd from @coffeehousecrowd to chat about all things Hawkeyes. It was an early morning but we strung sentences together with the help of coffee and laughs. Check it out. Thanks again Todd. Hit the link on @coffeehousecrowd page to hear our voices. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #coffeehousecrowd #podcast #goofballschatting #coffee #chatshow #orderoftheape #cardinalfuzz
27 tracks of guitar overdubs for one song? Sure, why not. Here our Ron @streetknife adds some smooth sparkle to Scramble with his trusty mammoth and carefully curated pedal board while Ryan and Buns hit the nod in approval. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #overdubs #gibsonguitars #orderoftheape #cardinalfuzz #flyingv #pedalboard #catalinbread #guitareffects #studio #recording
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
New album progress teaser from last night. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #recording #studio #newalbum
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. Photo courtesy of @andcarver from our set at @houseoftarg for the Ottawa PsychFest in the summer. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #houseoftarg #ottawapsychfest #ottawa #ourryeguy #newalbum
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

@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
It’s this gentleman’s birthday today and to celebrate, we figured we should continue playing shows with our budz @shootingguns Come to @calltheoffice tonight in London and help celebrate our bass player @blackout71 birthday and support the No Refunds tour!

Looking forward to playing around Ontario with them starting on Saturday. Safe travels dudes! See you Saturday. #shootingguns #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #staggridecymbal #brothersofthenod #anotherwolfcoptour #ontariorunwithourbestbuds
A tease of our newest song that we will be playing these upcoming shows with @shootingguns That’s all you get for now. It’s not called Lick It Up, but it’s close. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #newsong #notcalledlickitup #shootingguns
Portland folks having a listening party. Scrap that Hawkeyes section and put on Molly Hatchet!!! Gosh we love our Portland family. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #photona #mollyhatchet #patbenatar #journey #portland #pdx
The City of Kitchener seems to be warning the neighbourhood that we are rehearsing tonight for our upcoming run of shows. Our @streetknife doesn’t seem too keen either. See you soon in the clubs. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #tooloud #orderoftheape #cityofkitchener #thelickening
@harma808 and Edgar took advantage of @helmetladyrecords sale from a couple weeks back and snagged one of the few remaining copies of our Poison Slows You Down LPs. Rumour has it that they didn’t burn it, so they must have enjoyed the sounds in the grooves. Far out. New sounds coming soon. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #helmetladyrecords #poisonslowsyoudown #jedgarcat #vinyl #catsofinstagram

On this day in 2012 we began recording, something. First ep? Poison? Dunno. But it was at our old tiny live room at The Sweatlodge. It smelled as messy as this photo looks. We miss that place, but we love The Ape. Essentially this means we REALLY need to get more recording done. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #thesweatlodgecoven #thesweatlodge #recording #oldstudio
Any fan of Ronin? #comicbookworldinsta
Almost a wrap on my poster supporting @hawkeyesdoom at the Ottawa Psych Fest @houseoftarg on July 7th. Now time to prep it for screens. Stoked to put ink to paper.

Cheers to @marco_a_berg for posting these tasty outta site photos of our debut LP Poison Slows You Down that @helmetladyrecords pit out a few years ago. Jazzed that people still dig those sounds. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #poisonslowsyoudown #helmetladyrecords #vinyl #lp
Happy to have this upcoming show announced. Quite honoured to be playing with our blood brothers @shootingguns and the legendary Simply Saucer at @this_aint_hollywood for their @labelobscura 7” release party. Trip out. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #shootingguns #simplysaucer #labelobscura #thisainthollywood #hamilton #7inch
Who’s got one of these ultra limited @roanbateman designed and @brfc screen printed raglans from way back when? #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #peoplewearinghawkeyesshirts #brfc #roanbateman #raglan
Flipping through the archives and found this @mrmikebax shot of us playing some song in our studio a number of years back. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #orderoftheape #mrmikebax #heavypsych
A few additions to this corker of a psych out coming up in Ottawa. Super jazzed to play with so many buds and Cardinal Fuzz family members. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #shootingguns #thebandwhosenameisasymbol #cardinalfuzz #ottawa #houseoftarg #heavypsychout #birdmansound
Last Friday at our show at The Snake Pit, our Ryan @rye.guitars confronted his long standing and irrational fear of bicycles. He overcame and then shredded his balls off on guitar. All in all a successful night for our tallest Hawkeyes member. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #bicyclefear #thesnakepit #houseshow
Thanks to all who made it out to The Snake Pit last night for there second to last show. Mega respect to @staciejones101 and @scrotisredding for creating that live space. Huge thanks to @grebermetal for tearing it down and letting us use your cabs and drums. Bad Egg, BSHC and Uncle Ray started off the night. Can’t say we’ve ever had a mosh pit during our set before last night. What a trip. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #greber #badegg #bshc #uncleray #thesnakepit #otis #kidsmoshtoheavypsych
Tomorrow we play the second to last show at The Snake Pit. Song for the good times are @grebermetal Bad Egg, Uncle Ray and BSHC. We’ve got a pocket full of new sounds and look forward to playing them for you. Let’s hang out. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #greber #badegg #uncleray #bshc #thesnakepit #waterloo #otisthedog
Has this messed up Ontario spring ice storm got you snowbound? Be like @zorlacc today and drop this hot piece of wax on your platter and let the power of “ten hundred” suns and mega volcanos warm your cockles. And then anticipate the warmth of the summer and smoking hot sexiness that us and @shootingguns will bring to the stage together in the coming months. That’s a whole lotta hot heat!!! Hunk style. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #shootingguns #brothersofthenod #prerockrecords #helmetladyrecords #vinyl #splitlp #hooweehotheat #bunchadangolhunks #icestorm
Our grizzled drummer @ssdrumwolf showing what a combined 60” of cracked bronze looks like. Clearly not impressed. Time to get the drill out and keyhole a second 30” ride. Ugh. Hey Stagg, sponsor this cat already. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #staggridecymbal #brokencymbals #nem
The view of the front line ranks in our Hawkeyes Guitarmy from last week at the Bovine with @loworbitstonernaut @woodhawkriffs and @mountaindust Thanks as always to @mrmikebax for the capture and write up over at @puregrainaudio Check it out. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #loworbit #woodhawk #mountaindust #bovinesexclub #mrmikebax #puregrainaudio #toronto #thatsalotofguitars #guitarmy
Super excited to be back in the arms of our Brothers Of The Nod @shootingguns this summer. And our amazingly talented chum @eiyn.sof is going to overshadow us all that night. All this at our hometown live HQ @starlightsocialclub Thanks to our Ron @streetknife for waking up early and pumping out this gorgeous poster. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #shootingguns #brothersofthenod #eiynsof #starlight #starlightsocialclub #waterloo #summertour
Patrick @hawkeyepf and his new machine. Damn “this bird rips like a motherfucker”. Super drag that his Les Paul’s neck re-broke at the show last Friday, but this fella right here will sub in just fine. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #patricksnewguitar #gibson #gibsonfirebird #firebird #guitar #orderoftheape
Scenes of the sounds of last Friday night in Toronto as captured by our main dude @swid Thanks brother. Back out of the studio later this month at The Snake Pit in Waterloo. Till then, back to work on the new album. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #swid #thesnakepit #bovinesexclub #toronto #waterloo
We debuted a new song on Friday called Look At Him Scramble. This right here was the inspiration that our @hawkeyepf used to write the riff to said song. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #kidsinthehall #lookathimscramble
Well last night at @bovinesexclub was a blast. What a stacked lineup with buds @loworbitstonernaut @woodhawkriffs @mountaindust Always great seeing familiar faces. What a trip. Hope you dig our new sounds. Thanks to @mrmikebax for the document of new song Sausage Full Of Secrets. Far out! See you next in Waterloo at the Snake Pit. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #loworbit #woodhawk #mountaindust #ianblurton #bovinesexclub #toronto #swid
Prepping for the show with @woodhawkriffs @mountaindust and @loworbitstonernaut tomorrow at @bovinesexclub Running through a new song and the camera decided to focus on the ceiling in place of our beautiful mugs. Acceptable. Understandable. See you there Toronto. Door at 8. Bands at 9. $10 gets you in. Far out. #hawkeyes #hawkeyessound #woodhawk #loworbit #mountaindust #bovinesexclub #lookatthemscramble #kidsinthehall #orderoftheape #thewho
