The Prayers


Something new...


The Prayers are an exciting new band from San Diego, CA with a diverse range of influences. They take their cues from from the girl-groups of the early '60's, the Britpop of the mid-60's, first wave New York punk, Motown and the jangly pop of the US and UK's mid-80's underground. They have already taken their energetic show all around the United States and across the UK, including an appearance at 2007's Great Escape Festival in Brighton. Previously, members of the band have toured the world from 2002-2006 in The Plot To Blow Up The Eiffel Tower, Some Girls, and Lion Fever.


"God Save the Prayers", a debut 4-song EP released summer '07 on San Diego buzz-label Art Fag Recordings. One of the tracks, "Clandestino", was featured on a Vice Magazine compilation, while other tracks have been featured prominently on San Diego, Los Angeles, and college radio. A cover of Madonna's "Cherish" will come out in October on Los Angeles' Manimal Vinyl Records benefit compilation, "Through the Wilderness: A Tribute to Madonna". The band are currently demoing and compiling tracks for an as of yet unnamed debut album.
