Mar. 21, 2012 , Chicago – Beak, the post-metal quartet formed by local Chicago luminaries Chris Eichenseer and Jason Goldberg previously of The Timeout Drawer, release the “Hands Collide” video, the first single from their forthcoming release Eyrie (Apr. 3, Someoddpilot Records) today at

The “Hands Collide” video is a dark and claustrophobic nightmare, a literal collision of worlds – a not-quite family man and his late-night hunting safaris through the city’s suburbs. The clip was directed by Chris Eichenseer of Someoddpilot and shot on the North side of Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.

Eyrie, the band’s five-track debut album, was recorded and mixed in late-2011 at Engine Studios by Neil Strauch (Sage Francis, Bonnie Prince Billy) and early feedback on the release has been extremely positive with Metal Odyssey calling the album “an extreme, modern and uncompromising post-metal debut” and Hellride Music adding “Think Hum but much, much, much heavier.”

Beak have several tour dates on deck including a hometown show on Mar. 31 at Ultra Lounge. Full tour dates are:

Mar. 31 Chicago, IL Ultra Lounge
Apr. 11 Lansing, MI Mac’s Bar
Apr. 12 Columbus, OH Ruby Tuesday

Beak is Andy Bosnak (Guitar), Chris Eichenseer (Drums), Jason Goldberg (Bass, Vocals) and Jon Slusher (Guitar, Lead Vocals).
