The Schizophonics are, in one word, EXPLOSIVE. Their frenzied live
performances tap into the same unstoppable combination of rock ‘n’ roll energy
and showmanship that fueled the MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom.
When they hit the stage, they grab your attention and don’t let go. They’ve built
up a formidable reputation in their home base of San Diego and a fervent
following among locals. “One of my favorite live bands ever!” proclaims Tim
Mays, who has run the Casbah for over 25 years and seen literally thousands of
live bands come through his doors in that time. “The Schizophonics bring the
goods every time they play,” he enthuses. “Pat Beers is like a cross between Jimi
Hendrix and James Brown – yelping, wailing, shralping the guitar with his left
hand while gyrating all over the place; Kyle joins in the mayhem on bass and Lety
keeps it real behind the kit.”

But the Schizophonics are more than just an outstanding live act, they’re also
committed to writing great, memorable songs, a skill singer/guitarist Pat Beers
has continued to hone, channeling such influences as Jimi Hendrix Experience,
the Sonics, the Stooges, the MC5, James Brown, and Little Richard.

Pat and drummer Lety Beers first met in Casa Grande, Arizona, before pulling up
stakes and moving to San Diego in 2008. They formed the Schizophonics the
following year, and have worked tirelessly since then, playing literally hundreds of
live shows up and down the West Coast, and further afield. A 2013 tour of Spain
with El Vez – who had recruited them as his backing group – resulted in the
group’s first record release, a three-song 7” EP on the Munster label. In
December 2014 they took their act to an arena-sized venue for 91X’s Wrex the
Halls concert, on a bill that also included Billy Idol, Spoon, Cage the Elephant,
and Interpol. Afterwards 91X program director Mike Halloran declared them, “The
most exciting band I have seen in many, many years. They must be seen to be

In July 2015 the Schizophonics’ second single, “Put Your Weight On It” b/w “Red
Planet,” was released on the Ugly Things label. This summer they started work on
their debut album at Earthling Studios with producer Mike Kamoo. Their future
plans also include a European tour in September and October, this time taking in
Spain, Italy, France and England.
