Johnny Gioeli, a career vocalist whose credits include Hardline, Axel Rudi Pell, and Crush 40, has announced the formation of a new band, Enemy Eyes.
Enemy Eyes is the fulfillment of a vision of Johnny’s to create a new band that combines his fondness for classic hard rock with European metal.
Of note, this will be Gioeli’s 100th official release as a recording artist after decades of multi-platinum, gold, and critically acclaimed albums. A true landmark recording in his discography and also the beginning of a new chapter.
“Enemy Eyes is the final product of a vision I’ve had for many years of combining old school rock with a European metal feel. At the end of the day, I can sing many styles of music, but my heart and soul is metal. It is known to my fans as I wring the sweat out of my shirt each night on stage. I want to feel what I sing. I grew up with the music of DIO, Rainbow, [Black] Sabbath, [Iron] Maiden, and more. I needed to fulfill what I feel is a missing piece in my musical puzzle, so Enemy Eyes has been born. It’s not just a project, it’s my music life’s work moving forward,” says Gioeli.
The band’s debut album, History’s Hand will be released on November 1, via Frontiers Music Srl.
Today, Enemy Eyes release the new single and video, “Peace and the Glory”.
