Digital Lizards of Doom is a comic book-inspired sci-fi rock band, whose songs tend to lean towards concept album-style prog. The band is fronted by Gabriel Valentin (Counter Launch) and Jack Grubb, backed by a rotating roster of guest players that has included Mr. Hahn (Linkin Park), Andy Schawtz (Pocketwatch Games), Gallie, and Jace Hall (Twin Galaxies).
Their album Shaka Brah Gypsy was released via Noize Cartel Records of Australia in October 2016. The album features Las Vegas based violist Violin Girl, New York R&B singer Zachary Murdock of Smokey Robotic, and Flamenco Eddie Vazquez, along with modular synth producer Prettyhowtown. "They have all come together to help make this folk electro album that falls into the vein of Gogol Bordello meets Gorillaz," says Valentin. "The album also has a track called 'Betsey Johnson Style' that gives a major shout to progressive fashion designer Betsey Johnson."
According to Valentin, "Our worst gig ever was probably on this last tour in Australia  when we played at a Rave and it was a little too much rock for the poor EDM kiddos. But, for the most part, everyone had a good time!"
Their followup Dizzy Eko Makeover reached #12 on the UK independent charts, promoted with a music video for the track “I Don’t Know How To Dance.”
Their Autumn 2019 video for "Tall Glass of Wine" features guest appearances from locals such as Rob Deez (Big Time Mega Show) and Trevor Barber (Sweet Tooth).
The band's Digital Lizards Of Doom comic book made ComicBookResources.com's TOP 10 Best Indie Titles at Los Angeles Comic Con 2021. "Digital Lizards of Doom Trades Conventional Style For Uniqueness," according to the writeup headline, which continues "Taking inspiration from video games, 90s cartoons, and psychedelic color schemes, Gabriel Valentin and Ernie Najera created Digital Lizards of Doom as a comedic and uniquely stylized comic that follows Dizzy Doom through the video game he is living in. Notably, the game is being played by Pineapple Pete, who makes frequent appearances throughout. The book's unique style is a split between a dialogue-heavy left page, styled after a conversation in a messaging app, and a splash page on the right depicting the scene being discussed. It's a fresh, stylish story for comic readers."
