The Bobby Lees, who recently released their Ipecac Recordings’ debut, “Bellevue”, head out on their first North American tour in Spring 2023, in support of the album, which PopMatters dubbed their “most scorching and essential recording to date”.

Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Henry Rollins… these are just a few of the punk icons who have shown support for Woodstock, NY based band The Bobby Lees. Sam Quartin [vocals, guitar], Macky Bowman [drums], Nick Casa [guitar], and Kendall Wind [bass] — make music that is punk in spirit and soul; unfettered and resolutely honest. To say their sound is wild and untethered is an understatement. It’s the kind of aural exorcism any listener can tap into, something that struck a chord with Henry Rollins who brought them to Ipecac Recordings where Mike Patton and Greg Werckman signed them.
The Woodstock, N.Y.-based band have released three albums: “Beauty Pageantv (2018), “Skin Suit” (2020), and “Bellevue” (2022), Classic Rock Magazine adeptly said of the band: “Rock and roll as it ought to be: off the hook, unhinged, ravaged by Satan, hysterically vital, both kicking serious arse and against polite society’s pricks. As undisciplined as No Wave, as steeped in comatose cool as ‘70s CBGB’s blank generation, and as stylishly ferocious as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs”.
