Honduras Announce Spring Tour With Dances, Play SXSW
Announce Spring Tour With Dances, Play SXSW
Debut LP 'Rituals' Out June 2015 On Black Bell Records
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 the band 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, Noisey, Impose, and Nylon along the way, the group has shared stages like Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg with notable acts like Drowners and the Kaiser Chiefs over the past year.
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. On their latest EP, Break, Honduras matched clever lyrics with tight arrangements in anticipation of their upcoming debut LP to be released in June of 2015.
