Before they've ever played a show, the Prayers have received offers of sex and death threats via myspace.com. But, because three members of the new pop/rock outfit are in the Plot to Blow Up the Eiffel Tower, sex and violence can be expected.
"I'm sure a lot of Plot fans will hate the Prayers, but a lot of Plot fans are morons," says vocalist Brandon Welchez. "A lot of Plot fans hate the Plot whenever we step outside of the boundaries they build up for us in their heads, so yeah, I'm sure a lot of them will hate us."
The Prayers emerged after Welchez met Andrew Miller (formerly of Gasoline Please) and "formed mutual man-crushes on each other," says Welchez. The two searched San Diego for a rhythm section before borrowing Plot bassist Willy Graves and drummer Brian Hill.
The Prayers make their live debut January 17 at the Casbah.
