Cover One Eye was conceived, birthed, and nursed in the summer of 2012 by Noah Libby (guitar, vocals), Kenzie Tufts (bass), and Trevor Laliberte (drums, vocals). Over time, the band has found their style in a unique blend of punk and hardcore. The three have spent a great deal of time writing, recording, and playing shows, as well as going through high school. Their future sees no predictable end, and they will continue to feed off of both positive and negative energy in their lives to keep making music.
