New Album, I.V., Available Now from Deathwish Inc.
Bay Area, CA’s Loma Prieta are about to embark upon their Summer European tour, which will take the band all over Germany, Belgium, France, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Austria, and the Czech Rebuplic over the course of the next month.  The band is on tour in support of their debut album for Deathwish, titled I.V., which was released last January and hailed as  “…ambitious, tooth-grinding, and feedback-fucking in a Dropdead-meets-Pg. 99 cyclone of bile, I.V. adds chaos to injury in the best possible way” by the AV Club.

Formed in 2005, Loma Prieta have been a mainstay of the Bay Area hardcore community for more than half a decade. In that time they have released four 12 inch records and two 7 inch records mostly on their own label, Discos Huelga. They have also toured the U.S., Japan, Canada, and Mexico numerous times, all while members play in several other hardcore bands (Punch, Beau Navire, Us Haunted Bodies).  While Loma Prieta’s sound is difficult to describe, it is clear that they come from the rich tradition of creative Bay Area hardcore bands such as Mohinder, Funeral Diner, Bread and Circuits, Yaphet Kotto, and Indian Summer. Eschewing sub-genres in favor of organically writing songs that are personally fulfilling, each Loma Prieta record is substantially different from the last. Nonetheless, Loma Prieta have managed to forge a distinctive form of expression that is entirely their own.
