Yesterday Races – the Southern California based sextet with an admittedly “impossible to Google” name; released their 2nd single “Lies” off their forthcoming debut LP ‘Year Of The Witch’ (out Mar. 27th via Frenchkiss Records). Check it out HERE.

San Felipe and bassist Carly Rabalais, who, after founding Brooklyn garage rock juggernaut Golden Triangle (Hardly Art), sought a release that would sate both their sweet-toothed desires and their darker impulses, like a candy-coated Vicodin. Like their musical antecedents, The Jesus and Mary Chain and The Velvet Underground, Xray Eyeballs creates a world of their own. Low-lifes, night-walkers, pill-riders, and other sordid characters stalk the band’s New York City streets and their songs compel you to follow them until you find the peace of a night redeemed in the morning light.
