About Dinosaur Eyelids
Dinosaur Eyelids is alternative rock for a new generation. Based in New Brunswick, NJ the band has earned a reputation for their incendiary live performances. Their debut album “Winter Solstice” was released in December 2009 on itunes and Amazon. They play regularly and are house favorites at The Court Tavern in New Brunswick. They also perform regularly at The Stone Pony (Asbury Park), North Star (Philadelphia), Arlene’s Grocery (NYC), Fontana’s (NYC), Bar East (NYC), The Fire (Philadelphia) and Championship’s (Trenton). Their sound is like The Replacements being molested by Soundgarden.
“The lyrics of each song are poetic and Evan Staats has the perfect voice for this band and this kind of music. Patrick McKnight has an awesome power guitar cutting through the songs and Scott Staats and Dan Fishtein provide the thunder of Dinosaur Eyelids with the bass and drums keep an eye on these guys as Im sure they will be moving up quickly.”
-Jersey Rock Review (http://jerseyrockreview.com/2010/08/31/dinosaur-eyelids/)
“This is fuzzy, heavy rock n’ roll…my top pick song for this album is the last song, Waves. I love this album, and I’m sure this band is going to make some heads turn.”
-Sludge Swamp (http://sludgeswamp.blogspot.com/search?q=dinosaur+eyelids)
“Their brand of alternative rock is hard-hitting and straight to the point, while grunge and metal can be heard in amongst the driving melodies, which is unsurprising, given that Black Sabbath, Kyuss and Soundgarden are cited as influences. White Lies’ and Waves’ are undoubtedly the stand out tracks here, along with the down-tuned fuzz of the albums title track. Dinosaur Eyelids have played 45 shows since they began touring in June 2009, and the tightness of Winter Solstice can be attributed to this.”

“Their debut album Winter Solstice is a great one. Listen to the riff of the title track, it is awesome! Just like the other songs. My favorite is the last track Waves, a typical song to end an album. It starts subdued and ends in a great climax. Another great song is Know How To Die, that starts with a nice acapella intro. And Modal Realism has a riff that sticks in your head for the rest of the day. ”

-Tim Louie, East Coast Rocker
