THE BOBBY LEES ‘Bellevue’ LP
Limited white vinyl.
THE BOBBY LEES, fresh off an extensive European tour that included the Woodstock, NY-based band’s first stint in the UK, wowing audiences and critics alike (“screaming feedback, howling vocals, and a thumping beat suggest that rock’n’roll is still very much alive” - The Arts Desk), the Sam Quartin-led quartet announce the release of their Ipecac Recordings’ debut album, ‘Bellevue’.
The 13-song album, which was recorded live in-studio, was produced by Vance Powell (Jack White, Chris Stapleton, The Raconteurs).
Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Henry Rollins... these are just a few of the punk icons who have shown support for the band. Sam Quartin (vocals, guitar), Macky Bowman (drums), Nick Casa (guitar) and Kendall Wind (bass) make music that is punk in spirit and soul; unfettered and resolutely honest. To say their sound is wild and untethered is an understatement. It’s the kind of aural exorcism any listener can tap into, something that struck a chord with Henry Rollins who brought them to Ipecac Recordings where Mike Patton and Greg Werckman signed them.
Two European tours in the past year plus their first ever UK tour in Summer 2022.
“THE BOBBY LEES’ music, with its Sonic Youth-ian freakouts and barebones grit, is kind of like the best bad trip ever.” - Consequence
“... deliciously sleazy garage rock ‘n’ roll. It’s an old-school adrenaline rush, overrun with jagged guitar work and vocals that recall the spit and vigor of CBGB’s in the ’70s.” - Guitar World
