Over the last few years, the SCHIZOPHONICS have built up a formidable reputation in San Diego as an Explosive live act.
Tapping into the same unstoppable combination of rock 'n' roll energy and showmanship that fueled THE MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom, they're also heavily influenced by artists like JAMES BROWN, IGGY POP, JIMI HENDRIX, LITTLE RICHARD, and THE SONICS.
Singer/Guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers started playing together in late 2008 and have worked tirelessly since then, winning 4 San Diego music awards, and playing hundreds of live shows up and down the West Coast, and further afield. In 2013 they were recruited as the backing band/Opening band for EL VEZ, touring Spain and Italy. They returned to Europe in 2015 with THE LITTLE RICHARDS, and toured the U.K. for the first time in late 2016 with LITTLE BARRIE. They've since returned to Spain and the UK on their own.
Shindig magazine gave glowing reviews of their London show, describing it "Like watching some insane hybrid of WAYNE KRAMER, JAMES BROWN, and the Tazmanian Devil". After releasing singles and EPs over the last few years on Munster, Ugly Things, and Pig Baby Records, they put out their first full length album in July 2017 titled Land Of The Living on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label, with tours planned in the US and throughout Europe.
