Wolf Eyes began as a solo project of former Nautical Almanac member Nate Young. Aaron Dilloway joined in 1998 while also playing with John Olson in Universal Indians. Olson occasionally performed with Wolf Eyes under the Spykes moniker and joined Wolf Eyes in 2000 after Universal Indians disbanded.

In 2005, Aaron Dilloway left Wolf Eyes, disinterested in extensive touring. Mike Connelly (of Hair Police, Failing Lights and Clay Rendering) replaced Dilloway, appearing first on their 2006 album “Human Animal”. Dilloway did some production work on Human Animal.[2] He has performed with them on at least two occasions (Empty Bottle Chicago, IL 2/25/2006 and No Fun Fest Brooklyn, NY 3/18/2006).

It was announced in February 2013 that Mike Connelly has left the group to concentrate on his solo work and Hair Police. He was replaced in the line up by another Michigan musician Jim Baljo.[3] Both Aaron Dilloway and Mike Connelly appeared on the 2013 album “No Answer: Lower Floors”.

The group has released over 100 recordings in their relatively short lifespan. Official releases have appeared on labels including but not limited to Hanson Records, Bulb Records, American Tapes, Fusetron, De Stijl Records, Sub Pop, Troubleman Unlimited, AA Records, Gods of Tundra, Freedom From, and Hospital Productions. Wolf Eyes’ first two major tours were with Sonic Youth and Andrew W.K. They have collaborated with Anthony Braxton, Black Dice, Double Leopards, John Wiese, Mammal, Prurient, and Smegma.
