Ringo Deathstarr has announced a performance at Hotel Vegas on Saturday, August 28. This show is 21+ with tickets only being sold at the door for $10 while you can RSVP on the event page on Facebook.
Ringo Deathstarr is a shoegaze band based in Austin, Texas consisting of members Elliot Frazier (guitar, vocals), Alex Gehring (bass), and Daniel Coborn (drums). The band was started by Frazier in 2007 in his Texas hometown, Beaumont before moving to Austin where the lineup of Ringo Deathstarr was stabilized.
Ringo Deathstarr’s self-titled debut, a five-song EP, was released by the British label SVC Records in the fall of 2007. After a few more years of playing shows, shuffling members before settling on a core of Frazier, Gehring, and drummer Daniel Coborn, and honing their sound, the band was signed by the U.K. label AC30 after making a big splash at their Reverence Festival in 2010. The band’s first album, Colour Trip, was released by AC30 in the winter of 2010 and was licensed by Sonic Unyon for release in Canada. They next issued a compilation of previously released tracks, 2011’s Sparkler, and went on tour opening for Smashing Pumpkins, before returning with the Shadow EP in early 2012. Later that year, the group issued their second full-length album, Mauve, which displayed some newfound power and a streamlined production job by Frazier.
An EP, God’s Dream, followed in 2013, then they released Pure Mood on Club AC30/Reverberation Appreciation Society in late 2015. On it the band expanded their sound by adding in poppier, lighter elements, while at the same time making the heavier bits even heavier. After the album’s release, the band spent their time with real-life concerns and touring — including a trip to Japan in 2019 — then returned with a self-titled album in 2020 that saw them experimenting further with dream-pop textures.
