The Matt Carr EP (as the motivators)- this is the best sounding release as that band, with Chris Marr on lead guitar, and Chris Ploss on production, it's online for free:

Big Fun (upcoming August 2011)- this is the debut Doll Eyes album, recorded live, and produced by Chris Ploss. You can buy it for 5 dollars physical, or 3 dollars digital from bandcamp soon.

Bio: Four of us used to be in various lineups of this punk band called The Motivators when we were in highschool. Jacob and Eli started writing the songs for our new album last summer, and this summer we finished writing it, added our new singer, and got it all recorded. We like to have Big Fun with our music, and we hope you will too.

Influences: Queens of the Stone Age, Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys, At The Drive In, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Stooges, T. Rex, Pixies, Surfer Blood, Santigold, Waka Flocka Flame.

Sounds Like: A groovy, catchy punk band that uses way too many jazz chords.
