Conceived at a drag show in Brooklyn in August 2014, Acid Dad has quickly become

one of the most talked-about bands in the New York scene. Over the past year, their

string of infectious psych-punk singles has earned them nods from the likes of Nylon,

The Deli, CMJ, Village Voice, Impose, Hero Mag and more, and has garnered them

slots on Gigawatts Festival and Color Me Bushwick. Dingus once described them as “so

fucking good,” and if you listen to their latest single, “Grim,” you’ll see why. Between

dropping awesome tracks like that one, Acid Dad has made a name for themselves as

one of the tightest and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene. The band

recently played 6 CMJ shows, including Austin Psych Fest's Levitation showcase at

Rough Trade along with Drinks, Mild High Club and Shannon & the Clams. Look out for

their debut EP in early 2016.
Friends since childhood, Patrick Phillips (vocals/guitar) and Tyson Moore (lead guitar) found each other again in a Bushwick basement where they began writing much of what would become Honduras' early material. Inspired by late 70’s punk, but mixing in aspects of garage and indie that followed, Honduras played Brooklyn’s DIY venue scene tirelessly and garnered a reputation for amazing live performances, with comparisons to bands like Sex Pistols and Buzzcocks. After bringing in Josh Wehle to play drums they added a new bass player in Paul Lizarraga (the Denzels) to round out the band’s signature polished edge. Their more recent writing has included elements of krautrock and psych to their already energetic tracks for an intellectually developed and interesting sound. While picking up additional attention from serious tastemakers like Rolling Stone, NME, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Blur, Metz, Fidlar, Twin Peaks, Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs. The first single from their upcoming debut LP, Paralyzed, is currently in regular rotation on Sirius Radio XMU and the band was just featured in NME's On The Radar section. On stage the formula continues, where four good friends exhibit a savvy devil-may-care tightness. Their engaging stage presence is both apropos to their influences and forever exciting to witness in a young and surging project. Their upcoming debut LP is called Rituals, and will be released in Early 2016.
