((( ALBUM NEWS:
Our New Album is called 'A Nice Sweet Getaway' and it is in stores or available at our shows.
Psychedelic four-piece La Cerca from Tucson, Arizona emerged in the 1990s - originally under the name Wise Folk Malcontent - and changed its moniker after more than a decade of refining its sound. Helmed by Andrew Gardner, the frontman since day one and one of two remaining founding members alongside guitarist Bill Oberdick, La Cerca haven’t lost a shred of momentum as the band has continued to strengthen its reputation both in and out of the studio over a storied string of releases.
Building on influences from Sonic Youth and The Cure to Bob Dylan and Ride, La Cerca additionally incorporates a desert-infused blend of shoegaze, ambient, twangy pop hooks, and signature dueling guitars. WIth a unique sonic identity, La Cerca has established itself as pioneers of a new breed of psychedelic guitar rock with a diverse and growing global fanbase.
The band has a host of achievements under its belt, including signing with Fort Lowell Records and Xemu Records, getting tapped to play renowned showcases at industry events like SXSW, and sharing the stage with legendary names such as Snow Patrol and Radar Brothers.
WIth 20 songs in the works — being recorded at Waterworks by the band’s collaborator of over two decades, Jim Waters of Sonic Youth fame — and a spring tour, La Cerca is preparing for their biggest year yet.
