Big Eyes, the brainchild of Kait Eldridge, is a band that has spent its career successfully defying classification. They'€™re a punk band with pop sensibilities; they'€™re a power pop group with a hard rock edge. Big Eyes are different things to different people, and yet have always felt ultimately content cemented "in-between" the scenes.

Stake My Claim, the band's third full length, was recorded throughout the fall and winter of 2015. It opens with their heaviest song to date, the title track, which sets a tone of Kait at a crossroad: "Cause nothing stays the same / stake my claim." Her lyrics are centered around dissatisfaction and a need for change. Throughout the entirety of Big Eyes' discography, there is an undercurrent of sadness and frustration, but within Stake My Claim, Kait has found a sense of acceptance.

With the release of Stake My Claim, Big Eyes have expanded from a power trio to a four piece band, and are now able to showcase the driving, dueling guitar leads and classic power pop vocal harmonies of their albums within their live shows. With Kait on guitar and lead vocals, featuring Paul Ridenour on guitar and backup vocals, Malcolm Donaldson on bass, and Griffin Harrison on drums, the band sounds more complete and finessed than ever before. Despite location and lineup changes, Eldridge has always had a clear vision for Big Eyes: to find her own distinct balance between punk, hard rock and pop.
