GAY*BITS is a split LP from two of Portland’s most exciting underground rock ‘n’ roll bands: GAYTHEISTand RABBITS. Like two sides of the same strange coin, GAY*BITS showcases the wherewithal the two power trios summon to run in different directions with the same basic tools and material. Attacking the split LP format as a collaborative challenge rather than simply a vehicle for two distinct EPs, GAY*BITSfunnels, fuses, and distills the best of both their wacked-out worlds into twelve nuggets of hook-laden noise rock. Sharing songs, singers, and so-called humor, GAYTHEIST and RABBITS get up inside each others’ warped heads and in each others’ faces like never before, bringing out the best of both for a rollicking ridealong through a razorbladed candyland of catchy riffs, bruising beats, and surprises galore.GAY*BITS is to be released on August 21st, 2015 via GOOD TO DIE RECORDS. 

GOOD TO DIE RECORDS has teamed up with BROOKLYN VEGAN to premiere “I Quit”, a GAYTHEISTtrack from their second album Rainbows Have Nothing to Hide which was re-recorded with Josh Hughes from RABBITS on vocals. Stream “I Quit” HERE!
