Biography

Boyfrndz started as an idea between Scott Martin and Joseph Raines in 2011. Since then, the group has released two Eps, three full length records, an electronic album, and a live improv album featuring Grammy Award winning keyboardist Ikey Owens (a frequent collaborator, producing and playing on two other albums as well as a live player). Boyfrndz has also toured with ..And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, PALMS (Chino Moreno of Deftones/Members of ISIS), El Ten Eleven, Caddywhompus, also multiple dates with Tera Melos, Marnie Stern, This Town Needs Guns & Hikes.. among their 7 other national headlining tours in their 3 years. Boyfrndz signed with Brutal Panda Records to release their full length album "Breeder" in 2013, followed by 2015's "Impulse", which sees the group further expanding their meticulously constructed hypnotic sound into new realms of colorful, energetic and emotional territories. Impossible to pin a label to, Boyfrndz seamlessly merge hook-laden, reverb soaked vocals with powerful guitar playing and complex rhythms.
