San Diego’s iconic electronic/rock duo, Prayers, are back with new single “Black Leather” and Baptism Of Thieves EP coming later this year.
Fueled by pulsating synthesizers, metallic percussion and oscillating bass with frontman Rafael Reyes’ trademark howl, the hook-driven track explores themes of angst and alienation in the band’s post-industrial-electronic, cholo-goth signature style. Kat Von D also features on the single.
The first new music since the band’s acclaimed studio album Young Gods released in 2015, “Black Leather” marks the beginning of a busy 2016 to come.
Founded in 2013 by Rafael Reyes and Dave Parley, Prayers are the first band to coin the term “cholo goth” to define their musical genre. Exploring the harsh realities of gang/street life over throbbing beats, their music defies stereotypes within the goth and cholo subcultures all the while creating their own underground scene.
