Premiere

Big Eyes – “Stake My Claim” Video

I saw Big Eyes open for Against Me! in a glorified dive bar a few years back during the support cycle for their 2013 effort Almost Famous and instantly fell in love with them. The songs were catchy and energetic, and I couldn’t get enough of it. This August, the band will release their new album Stake My Claim on Don Giovanni Records, preceded by a lead single with the same name. Accompanied by a video shot in reverse, “Stake My Claim” doesn’t disappoint: It’s Big Eyes at their best, with Kaitlyn Eldridge’s taking over as one of the more powerful instruments of the ensemble. Some words from Eldridge:

“Stake My Claim,” the song and the entire album, is about not letting anybody control you, and taking responsibility for yourself. CHOOSE YOUR OWN DESTINY! NO GODS, NO MASTERS!
