Anywhere but where? Nowhere in particular. If there's a more fitting name for a band then Anywhere fits this LA/SF outfit to a tee. More on that later. Putting the pieces together, Christian Eric Beaulieu (Triclops!) joined forces with Cedric Bixler (The Mars Volta) in 2010 in Los Angeles. Months down the line, the duo laid some tracks at The Melvins practice spot in DTLA and Beauliue killed two birds with one stone - playing live on Mike Watt's (The Stooges) "The Watt from Pedro Show" and getting Watt to lay bass on the tracks. Still needing a vocalist, Beauliue enlisted Rachel Fannan (Bay Area's Sleepy Sun). And the rest is history!
Fast forward to 2012 and they have a single out, "Dead Golden West", from the self-titled LP dropping July 24th on ATP Records. The music is eastern acoustic punk in the likes of Sandy Bull or Sir Richard Bishop. There's ups and downs on this record - from the rapid speed of punk to light and enchanting in a medley of acoustic and electric sounds, geographic diversity, and even sci fi electronics that make the band that's not just going somewhere musically speaking but anywhere. - Lana Vadiyants
