Gaytheist Album Release
With Upcoming PDX Show
Gay. Atheist. Music for gay atheists? Sure. Music written by a gay atheist? Yes. Music for anyone that enjoys flopping about like a wet noodle in a dryer as chunks of concrete are thrown in every 30 seconds? Definitely.
For the past 15 years Tim Hoff (Bass), Jason Rivera (Guitar/Vocals) and Nick Parks (Drums) have tried to add something new to the Portland musical landscape. Nihilist, Lopez, Das Gravyboat, Fiery Cubist, Females, Elitist, El Cerdo, Trojan Hearse, S 1e61 prinkles, Roaring Lions. These bands served as preparation for the inevitable: POWER BOTTOM.
When that name turned out to already be taken, they settled on the equally awesome GAYTHEIST. Their song-writing motto: Keep it short. Play it Fast. Keep it interesting. “Would I want to sit and listen to this 30 times in a row?” Every time the answer is yes, a new Gaytheist song is born. And they are born several times a month, if not a week.
Gaytheist claim to have maintained constant erections since learning the home of Monogamy Party and Sandrider wants to put out their latest effort.
Now that they’ve played every nook and cranny of Portland and Seattle, Gaytheist is ready to grow from their self-released albums on their own Corflax Records to their favorite Indie Label in the Milky Way, Good To Die Records. Gaytheist, will be releasing Stealth Beats on Aug 21 via Good To Die Records. These Portlanders have gotten comparisons to the likes of Jesus Lizard, Quicksand, Torche, among others. Thir music can only be described as really stellar punk-leaning metal. Their drummer is a beast, and their frontman kinda has a flamboyant, suited, man-about-town thing going on.
