Lecherous Gaze Euro Tour

September 22, 2014

Emerging from the ashes of celebrated East Bay punk/metal greats Annihilation Time in 2010, Oakland-based band Lecherous Gaze has been refining the band’s kinetic mix of raw garage rock, psych, proto metal and ’80s punk for the past several years and are now planning to do a European Tour this October.
Led by gifted guitarist Graham Clise (who also plays with Dinosaur Jr. six-string legend J. Mascis in the like-minded groups Witch and Heavy Jam), the quartet issued several singles before releasing it’s acclaimed Tee Pee Records debut On the Skids in 2012.

Built around Clise’s ever-inventive riffs and singer Zarayan Zaidi hoarse growl (former Saviours bassist Chris Grande and Annihilation Time drummer Noel Sullivan fill out the crew), songs like album opener “Scorpion” and “Babagazo” recall elements of original NYC gonzo punks The Dictators and high-octane latter-era Jimi Hendrix. Lecherous Gaze’s trashy, headlong onslaught helped earn the quartet a growing fan base. Steady shows played around the Bay Area and across the nation over the past year has raised the band to club headliner status.
