The Schizophonics drop new single from forthcoming album Hoof It, US tour starts Sept. 7th

San Diego garage-soul trio returns with powerhouse album recorded by Dean Reis (Plosivs, RFTC)

“The wildest band in America.” — Spotify For Artists


“Makers of high octane, soulful garage punk.” — Brooklyn Vegan


“The explosive live act proudly evokes the high energy rock’n’roll of The MC5, merged with the aggressive rhythms of 60s Memphis soul underground for a relentless blast of fun.” — Big Takeover


“The kind of Rock rawkus that makes me shake my ass like I’m possessed by the spirit of MC5 and Little Richard at the same time. This band’s songs don’t just exist to be heard but to be felt deep down in your soul!” — CvltNation

The band recently launched the video for “Won Your Love”, a recent live show favorite, available to watch and share via YouTube. The band previously issued the lead single “Desert Girl” via YouTubeSpotify and all other DSPs. CvltNation hosted “Underneath The Moonlight” HERE.


The band just recently wrapped up an extensive tour of Europe, and will be very busy for the next year with tour dates around the world. Extensive North American dates kick off on September 7th. Please see current dates below. 


Over the last few years, The Schizophonics have built up a formidable reputation around the world as an explosive live act. Tapping into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy and showmanship that fueled The MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom, their wild live show is heavily influenced by artists like James Brown, Iggy Pop, Jimi Hendrix, Little Richard, and The Sonics. 


Singer/guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers formed the band in San Diego in 2009 and have worked tirelessly since then, playing hundreds of shows around the globe. In 2013 they were recruited as the backing/opening band for El Vez, which helped the band make a name for itself in Europe. Since then, they’ve played in numerous countries, and supported tours by like-minded acts like Rocket From The Crypt, Little Barrie, The Woggles and have opened for the Damned, DEVO, The Hives and Cage The Elephant. Shindig Magazine described their live show “Like watching some insane hybrid of WAYNE KRAMER, JAMES BROWN, and the Tasmanian Devil.” 


The band is more than just a live act; they’re also committed to writing great memorable songs. Their new album Hoof It on Pig Baby Records due in Fall 2022 was recorded by Dean Reis at Singing Serpent studio (Plosivs, RFTC) and mixed by Steve Kaye at Sun King Studios. 


Hoof It will be available on LP, CD and download on September 2nd, 2022 via Pig Baby Records. Pre-orders are available HERE.
