LISTEN & SHARE: The Herms – “Parades”
|After a three year break, The Herms are back and have announced a new album, Welcome All Tourists, via Narnack Records. It’s also been four years since the groundbreaking Narnack Records has released any music, putting out Garrett Pierce City of Sand and Electric Flower EPIIin 2012. The first single from The Herms new LP, “Parades” was just released and is a glimpse at what to expect from the forthcoming album.
Welcome All Tourists is out April 1st and you can pre-order it on iTunes and through Narnack Records.
|Having relocated from the Bay Area to Los Angeles in 2014, The Herms add true grit and originality to the sun-fried, post-punk scene of Southern California. Born in the co-ops of Berkeley with bedroom Tascam recordings in the mid aughts, nurtured in San Francisco, and finally finding residence on the East side of LA, The Herms brings a frenetic, schizophrenic charm to the lo-fi reemergence. Matt Lutz leads the charge with his lefty guitar and, at times, Mark E. Smith style vocals. Vlad Duran adds melodic bass lines, and Mike Leyva on drums fill out the other points of the sonic triangle.
