Like a vaudevillian, morphine-induced dream, The Schisms are a dark rainbow of sleek, urban guitars on top of bouncing drums and fuzzed-out basslines. Add triggered synths, Nick Cave-like vocals, and wild dissonance, and you have the pallet of infectious rhythms from which The Schisms draw their sound. Forged by the union of frontman Carson Barker, Lila Paillon on bass, and drummer Gregg Lavey, The Schisms formed in 2013 and have since self-produced two EPs and recently finished first full-length album “Moon” with Grammy-winning producer, Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Loretta Lynn) at the helm.
Known for their raucous live performances and self-produced videos, The Schisms have shared the stage with legendary acts like Richie Ramone of the Ramones, Barb Wire Dolls, The Goddamn Gallows, Peelander Z, Cheetah Chrome of The Dead Boys, Flametrick Subs, and more. Their music and live shows have received rave reviews from fans and media, including The Austin Chronicle, Stench Radio, and WEMF Boston Radio.
Since wrapping up an East Coast tour to NYC and back, The Schisms will be touring East and West Coast in 2017 after they launch their first full-length album on Stray Wavs Records.
