Oakland Party Rockers Deliver “A Record with Teeth” and “Riffs for Days”; Kick off U.S. Tour Dates
Oakland, California’s mighty LECHEROUS GAZE will release its debut full length album On the Skids on October 9 via Tee Pee Records. The follow up to the band’s celebrated, self-titled EP was recorded in Oakland’s Earhammer Studios (Ghoul, Saviours) and is an up-tempo firebomb of awesome riffage, wailing solos, ’70s fuzz tone guitar and grade-A, no-bullshit rock ‘n’ roll. Insidious, Mad magazine-esque cover art by Tim Lehi (High on Fire, Leviathan, Saint Vitus) only adds to the soul-withering mayhem this record dishes out!
Oozing forth from a festering sore on the recently buried corpse of ultra-sick, Californian sleaze-rock legends ANNHILIATION TIME, comes the ear-mauling, noisy, insanity-soaked musical mayhem of LECHEROUS GAZE! The self-proclaimed “#1 Rockin’ band in the entire World”, LECHEROUS GAZE is like the prow of a mighty ship cutting through a sea of turd, carrying on the legacy of bands like the MC5 and Black Flag to bring dangerously heavy rock back to the masses. Who needs studio trickery when each member is jamming out of his mind?!?! Three years in the making, On the Skids‘ maelstromic mixture of heavy rock riffage, punk snarl attitude and Zep-like attention to detail comes across like a hesher’s record collection melted together into one crushing slab of volcanic rock that leaves nothing but burning embers and ringing ears. Harsh and heavy, LECHEROUS GAZE play destructively nasty music for fiendish people!!
The track listing for LECHEROUS GAZE‘s On the Skids is as follows:
1.) Lyin’ in the Road
5.) Born on a River
7.) War Woman
8.) Passion Flower
10.) The Grasp

”The rock is hard, high, and mighty; the tunes have teeth; and the jams are kicked the fuck out! This is LECHEROUS GAZE and they play rock ‘n roll. Bow down and give praise.” – BLABBERMOUTH
”If you took your record collection and your dad’s record collection, combined them, weeded out the shitty ones you and he bought to impress some chick, then played all the sweet ones at the same time on some epic ass stereo, it might sound half as bad ass and balls deep as the Lecherous Gaze.” – Albert Einstein (You can’t argue with genius, people)
