California Death Rays / Press

“I highly recommend them. They call themselves “sweaty rock and roll”, but I think the main point is what they sound like, not how much they sweat. Go check ‘em out. They work hard, they rock hard, they sound good.”

“California Deathrays were FUCKING AWESOME. Why? They did something that I love which is incredibly hard to pull off without seeming contrived or gimmicky: They have created their own sort of mythology. ..The band seem to really know who they are and what they want to sound like which is rarer than you'd think. Also they fucking shredded live. Heavy kinda desert rock with major guitar-face and sick drumming. Like a rawer QOTSA. Tell your friends. Cali D-rays for life.”

“saw them saturday at the bovine. very muscular pop? punk? new wave? 3-piece that can slam and crunch with the best of them while being tasteful and restrained with a deft sweet touch. did a great cover of missing persons 'walking in l.a.' sung by drummer Niki Deathray. speeded it up and made it rock.”

“An excellent, kick-ass heavy rock band that doesn't take any bullshit. Always been awesome, always been bit of a drunken rock-show fiasco, in the best way possible. Hopefully they won't be much of a secret in Toronto for much longer.”

“Good old fashioned, filthy rock and roll. Rock that's definitely sweating all over the fucking place.”

“It's neat when a band sounds like their name, and in your case, California Death Rays is so appropriate. There's a heaviness but also a fun garage feel to it.”
