Ringo Deathstarr, a musical trio from Austin, TX, have been putting out records since 2007. Consisting of Elliott Frazier (guitar, vocals), Alex Gehring (bass, vocals), and Daniel Coborn (drums, vocals), their sound is born from a love of melody, a love of guitar, and a hatred of pompous vocals. Finding it to be too much fun, the group has expounded upon the sounds of the masters before them.
This desire to play the music they were too young to witness as children has taken Ringo Deathstarr around the globe, performing in places as far flung as Israel, Mexico, Brazil, Japan, Europe, Canada, and the continental USA, supporting favorites like …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, Dean Wareham, The Wedding Present, and The Smashing Pumpkins. With two full length records (Colour Trip and Mauve) and a handful of EPs and singles in the bag, now is the time for a new EP, God’s Dream, which was recorded in Austin and on a ranch in Dripping Springs, TX. For this record, the band reunited with Chris “Frenchie” Smith, who co-produced their debut EP.
“As the lovechild of every pedal-loving, dream-poppy band from the late 1980’s, mixed with a few dashes of tremolo and a noticeable disdain for song lyrics, Ringo Deathstarr kick fucking ass. “ — VICE Magazine
