Biography

Frost (vocals), Sweeney (lead guitar), Coatez (bass), Blanco (drums) and Bobby S. (guitar) are a band that performs with a fury not seen in a long time. Recording WE LOVE WHAT KILLS US on tape, (yes, tape) and 100% live, the band delivers a provocative assembly of dark verse over thick sexy grooves. The type of tracks that keep hips shakin’, and fists flying high, whether in dorm rooms, muscle cars, the smoky blackness of clubs, or arenas across the world. “These songs have a power that destroys me when I perform them, I physically hurt myself onstage,” Frost ignites, “these songs are about chaos, sex, nervous breakdowns, and revenge. I have hurt myself with bad relationships to write this shit. They are a window, not a mirror. You see my soul.”

The band’s talent has been recognized and awarded, not with gold-plated plastic trophies, but with tours and opening slots from the likes of Peaches, Hot Hot Heat, The Cult, The Stooges, The Bronx, Buckcherry, (International) Noise Conspiracy and Papa Roach, to name a few. The music they’ve created has continually hit home with the hipsters and straight up rock crowd alike and the title track for the new record was chosen as the lead song on college/tastemaker’s Planetary Group’s “Stranded In Stereo” (Volume 8) collection. That past series alumni boasts Wolfmother, Interpol, Bloc Party and Baby Shambles to name-drop a few.

The new record marks the first time the band will release music in two languages, English and Spanish, vocalist Frost breaks it down, “I left for Europe when I was a teenager to avoid the banality of California life and the feeling that I had no future here in America.
