"Fury Eyes" is a song recorded by English band The Creatures (aka singer Siouxsie Sioux and drummer Budgie). The song was co-produced by Mike Hedges. It was remixed by Pascal Gabriel for release as the second single of the critically acclaimed Boomerang album.[1]

The song was inspired by the 1989 novel In the Eyes of Mr. Fury by Philip Ridley.[2]

The single was released prior to the first-ever European tour by the duo.

The cover and artwork were created by Anton Corbijn and Area. The photo sessions took place in Andalucia, Spain in May 1989. It was the first time Corbijn chose to portray artists in color; his previous works were only in black and white.
