Beaters, formed by singer-guitarist Jeremy Riojas and drummer Andrew Montoya, is mutant-noir-punk emerging from the borderlands of California. Beaters grew up in a cult, did time in jail, went AWOL from military duties, played in The Sess and frequents Ale Mania. Beaters fights the sugar-coated analgesic of urban-outfitted surf-nostalgia with distrust, paranoia, and darkness to remind us of the chem-trails in the sky…still all the while enjoying fish tacos and freshly trafficked pharmaceuticals from across the border. Beaters have a cult following in Italian discotecas where a semi-religious type dance has emerged whenever their song “Fishage” is played. The crowd dances while their hands raise and lower in the air and shake vehemently to ‘Ahhh, Ahhhh, Ahhh, Ahhh, Ahhhh’. Watch for their LP release on Volar Records and catch them live on their U.S. tour with Obits in August of 2011.
