Leather Girls first unleashed their ferocious style of garage rock upon their hometown of Austin, Texas in 2015 after Erik Camacho (guitar/lead vox) and Mike Garrido (guitar/vox) bonded over their shared affinity for Tropicália, Los Dug Dugs, and Billy Childish. Dillon Fernandez soon got added into the mix (drums) shortly followed by Deborah White (bass/vox).
Listen to their psychedelic-tinged Arabian Daze from their forthcoming self-titled debut album.
Once a fully gelled unit, they quickly garnered a reputation for their high-energy live show and blistering fuzz accentuated with a hint of Texas twang – sharing bills with legends like Holly Golightly, The Dictators, Mr. Airplane Man and becoming a favourite show partner with local heavy hitters Ringo Deathstarr and Holy Wave.
Their highly anticipated self-titled debut album will be released on June 2nd via Yippee Ki Yay Records. Order it here.
