Guerilla Toss is more active than ever right now, with an impressive list of upcoming tour dates, and their first release with DFA. Up first is a cassette/digital EP entitled “Flood Dosed” out September 25th, followed by a full-length LP entitled to be released in early 2016.
Guerilla Toss is lead by vocalist/poet Kassie Carlson, her vivid, imagistic lyrics covering a full spectrum of frequencies, subject matter, and emotional depth. Co-founder and drummer Peter Negroponte, contributes a sense of rhythm and syncopation equal parts academic and raw, providing a solid foundation for the world-class weirdos making up the rest of the group.
Guitarist Arian Shaifee combines elements of noise, skronk, metal shred, and R&B, often all in the same song. Newly added bassist Phillip Racz brings his keen sense of punk jazz to the table. And then there’s Sam “Coach” Lisabeth, laying down lush pads and sub synth bass bombs that penetrate NYC’s core from Brooklyn’s grimiest DIY venues to the midtown Trump towers.
After a month long winter jaunt to Europe to cap off 2014, GT went into hibernation for five months, the longest they had gone without touring or playing shows. They emerged with a new batch of material, coupled with the exciting news that they had signed to New York’s DFA Records – the next logical step in the band’s mission to becoming the worlds largest rage-psych phenomenon.
