Bio

LEECHES! Short. Fast. Chaotic. Punk. This is a fairly accurate summation of LEECHES!, from Perth, Australia. They've influences from the golden era of 80's skate punk, with a nod to the world of fast, maximum rock 'n' roll. With an outstanding list of support shows such as Misfits, Cosmic Psychos, Dune Rats, Radio Birdman, Propagandhi, I Exist, Dead Kennedys, Slates, Subsonics, Vaarollinen and a tour here and there with Frenzal Rhomb and the HardOns, they plan to be in your Mum's Christmas stocking before you know it. Imagine if someone greeted you with a handshake, yelled at your face for 45 seconds, gave you a hug, screamed a little more, then gave you a little nod and a grin and casually moved on. This is probably the most in depth description of LEECHES! I can give. ....fuck this, I can't think and listen to LEECHES! at the same time....it's driving me nuts. I've been trying to write this bio for about 5 minutes now whilst listening to their debut album 'LORDS OF DULLSVILLE', and before I've even had time to figure out where the fucking caps lock button is for every time I need write the word LEECHES!, I'm already onto track 4. The sound of this mental chaos has made my bung eye start to leak large amounts of fluid, and my liver thinks I'm an alcoholic, though I haven't had a drink for weeks. Bloodyfuck! I feel like someone has inserted a blown speaker inside my head and I've had a kilo of dexies inserted into my anus. LEECHES! will do that to you, godammit. Stay tuned for the release of their second album Blurred Visions in late 2015!

two seconds longer than 'Media Frenzy', but you packed those two seconds with so much fury that I'm not even mad about it.

Any other band taking longer than 53 secs to get their message across should take a good hard look at themselves.
