Giving every ounce of their being over to everything that they set their minds to, CLOSE YOUR EYES blew the top off of the Abilene, Texas music scene and has brought their high energy, passionate brand of hardcore to the masses. With one listen of their Victory Records debut, We Will Overcome, audiences everywhere will notice the authenticity of this spirit-filled, hardcore outfit.

Shane Raymond (Vocals) and Brett Callaway (Guitar/Vocals) first met at Hardin-Simmons University. Being the only two “hardcore” kids in the cafeteria connected them immediately. This encounter stirred the realization that the pair had a common ambition; to write and play music of their own.

“We started searching for other musicians to round out the lineup,” explains Callaway. “Some of those members lasted longer than others. Our first bass player might have played five shows with us at the very most. After a couple of tryouts and one disaster of a show where I let someone else play guitar so that I could play bass, we recruited Sonny. He really complemented the rest of the group and that’s the point where we began to grow.” After some tumultuous, additional member changes, guitarist Andrew Rodriguez stepped in and David Fidler took over on drums. That’s when CLOSE YOUR EYES hit the ground running.

CLOSE YOUR EYES has been going strong with their current lineup for over two years now and includes: Shane Raymond (Vocals), Brett Callaway (Guitar/Vocals), Andrew Rodriguez (Guitar), Sonny Vega (Bass), and David Fidler (Drums).
