Since 2016, singer and guitarist Krista Diem, her husband and bassist David Diem (of 12 Hour Turn), guitarist Drew DeMaio (Asshole Parade, Floor, Strikeforce Diablo), and drummer (former) Jeff Gensterblum (Small Brown Bike, Able Baker Fox) have fused folk-inspired melodies with sonic backdrops inspired by punk aesthetics, DIY scenes, and basement shows. As they’ve blossomed from a singer with a backing band to a full-blown collaboration, their songs have found the power to dive deep while shining brightly, pushing toward personal growth as we collectively stare down the void.
After appearances at The Fest in Florida and tours with both Jawbox and J. Robbins Band, LAPÊCHE has spent 2020 & 2021 writing and recording virtually, having contributed to benefits for the National Independent Venue Association, Black Lives Matter, and more. They’ve also started a collaboration series with friends including Samuel Fogarino (Interpol) and Dave LeBleu (The Album Leaf, Mercury Program) contributing remixes.
New album, Blood In The Water OUT NOW on New Granada Records on LP, streaming, and digital.
