B♥TT♥MS Announces Debut EP "Goodbye"

NYC gay band B♥TT♥MS is releasing their debut EP Goodbye January 20, 2015 on JD Samson's Atlas Chair label. The band likes to joke that they are comprised of "two shitty drag queens, a 303 and a drummer." But you will see by the two preview tracks below, that is just not true! Their music exceptionally interesting and, all around, pretty eff'in great.

B♥TT♥MS' methods of combining hilarious and terrifying stage antics along with acid house minimalism creates a joyful yet violent experience. The band is Simon Leahy, Michael Prommasit, and Jake Dibeler. As co-founder of the annual Bushwig Festival, Leahy spearheaded the new "drag explosion" in the Bushwick nightlife scene.

Leahy & Prommasit's prior band teeth, has toured internationally. Dibeler is a performance artist whose work touches on historical anxieties surrounding HIV and gay suicide, which he uses as the basis of his lyrics.

Anyway, take a listen! We will try to do an interview with these guys when the record comes out! Enjoy!
