LSD hit the West Coast in 2006, and word quickly spread in and around San Francisco’s underground psychedelic community music about the mesmerizing sounds and transforming live shows. After only their second gig (with Australia's The Morning After Girls), they were asked to play with Lilys. From there the praise and intrigue continued to grow, and LSD were soon invited on two separate West Coast tours with the U.K.'s Spectrum (featuring Sonic Boom of Spacemen 3) and The Telescopes (on their first and only U.S. tour). These shows quickly earned them a reputation for delivering psychedelic, guitar-driven indie-rock with pop sensibilities, youthfully flirtatious male and female vocals, all existing alongside dreamy and hypnotizing drones.

With a busy schedule out West, LSD generated excitement and garnered attention with repeated stellar performances while sharing the bill with the likes of Dead Meadow, Martin Rev (of Suicide), and DJs Anton Newcombe (Brian Jonestown Massacre), Nick Jago (Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), and a record release party with DJ Colm O'Coissoig (My Bloody Valentine).

The self-titled EP (Mind Expansion records, 2007) sold out from their record label as well as its distributor before it was officially released. The EP was subsequently picked up and re-issued on vinyl by Deep Space Recordings. Their brilliant debut EP makes it clear why astonishing live performances up and down the West Coast have firmly established LSD and the Search for God as the up-and-coming darlings of the underground psychedelic, spacerock, shoegaze community.

LSD are featured on two Mind Expansion "spacerock" compilations, as well as "Take Me On the Wildest Spree," a nugazer compilation released by Austrailia's Rubber Records, a division of EMI. One critic from Richmond, Virginia, declaring LSD "a poppier My Bloody Valentine or a more opiated Sonic Youth."

To follow up their successful debut EP, LSD plan a winter release on Mind Expansion records. Ricky Maymi (Brian Jonestown Massacre) joins LSD on drums for five songs.
