100 GECS - 10,000 GECS VINYL (LTD. ED. VARIANTS)
Release Date: 17th March 2023
"The duo of Dylan Brady and Laura Les, 100 gecs, announces that the band’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, 10,000 gecs, will arrive on March 17th, 2023. Along with this announcement, 100 gecs also released a surprise EP, Snake Eyes. The EP features 3 unreleased tracks including “Torture Me” featuring Skrillex and “Hey Big Man” which has been a crowd favorite as the show opener on their recent tour. Following their breakout debut album, 1,000 gecs, the anticipation of their next body of work has been high and the band’s teases have been plentiful. They detailed the early 10,000 gecs creation process in an illuminating 2021 Pitchfork Cover Story that took fans into the studio with the duo for the first time. The forthcoming album is set to include previously released singles “mememe” which was described in the story as "an ebullient carnival of ska-inflected verses that bounce off a chorus of thrash guitars and a squiggling synth line" along with the 90’s Alt Rock-inspired “Doritos & Fritos,” which The Fader noted as "unlike any other Gecs track before it.” This year, 100 gecs completed their headlining world tour and performed at festivals such as Coachella, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo, Primavera Sound, and Lollapalooza, where Rolling Stone noted that fans were “confronted with a decision: waste time trying to decipher what it means, or embrace the absurdity and jump around." The Boston Globe described the local stop on their sold-out tour as "a pungent medley of vape smoke, Gen Z mosh-sweat, and hundreds of spilled drinks — was the lingering effect of gecs" and The Guardian praised them on their debut in the UK and Europe as "electrifyingly, disorientingly great." Throughout the tour, they previewed unreleased songs like "Hollywood Baby," "757," and "what's that smell?" with fans showing up to concerts knowing all of the words from pouring over obscurely grainy live show footage that began circulating as the tour pressed along. A testament to their music not only wormholing into Gen-Z ears but also gathering the respect of Alternative legends, the band were also handpicked to support acts such as Nine Inch Nails and My Chemical Romance this year."
