From Her Eyes was a metalcore band formed in Bridgend, Wales. The band formed in May 2012, and disbanded in February 2016.


After originating from various local bands, the group was constructed by Tomas Morgan, James Kearle and ex-bassist Luke Williams in June 2012. The band recruited Indigo Lani Lewis-Jones and Gary Holley to complete the line-up.

From Her Eyes quickly gained a following in the local area, and dedicated more time into the project.[1] From Her Eyes released a demo EP entitled No Place Like Home in late June 2013. After the release, Luke Williams subsequently announced his departure from From Her Eyes in mid-July, citing personal commitment as the reason. The split was amicable, and Luke was replaced later with Jesse Simmonds,[2] a close friend of Kearle and his ex co-band member of Concepts of Fiction

In the following months, From Her Eyes continued to perform regularly whilst beginning to write new material. Demos for the tracks "Comatose" and "Disillusionist" (which would both feature on the band's EP Demons) were completed in late 2013. Due to creative and personal differences Indigo Lani Lewis-Jones was removed from the line-up in January 2014.

Upon her release, From Her Eyes went through an extensive 8 month audition process, eventually recruiting Joe Shutt (after the recording of the Demons EP, but before its official release.) The band recorded the Demons EP[3] with Jonny Renshaw (Devil Sold His Soul) at Bandit Studios (Devil Sold His Soul, The Elijah, Blood Youth) in April 2014.

The EP was subsequently released on 25 August 2014, to strong critical acclaim, as well as being included on a Metal Hammer compilation CD 22 July 2014 with metal and hardcore stalwarts such as Suicide Silence, Every Time I Die and In Flames.[4] On the back of this EP, From Her Eyes signed a management deal with Imperial Music in Spring 2015. They subsequently supported Bury Tomorrow, Polar, Monuments, No Consequence, Continents and more and then proceeded to record a new single. "Glass" was released on 21 September 2015.

The band embarked on a UK tour with Novelists[5] from October-November 2015.

On 18 January 2016, From Her Eyes announced the amicable departure of Joe Shutt, who had actually left the band in late December 2015.

Despite ambitious plans for the next year, on 25 February From Her Eyes announced they would be disbanding. They stated that the departure was amicable, and was based on "the bigger things in life making the band not a viable option", before thanking fans and the Welsh Scene.[]
