Pyro Pyro is a LA based rock duo comprised of Mike Harris & Chris Neff.
After meeting briefly in early 2018 and connecting over the new Queens of the Stone Age album, Mike & Chris decided they should jam together ASAP. With no songs written together and no prior talk of songs to play, the duo had their first jam. They met at an unmarked rehearsal building and filled the small room with three amps, two microphones, and a drum set. The sounds that ensued were simultaneously thunderous, melodic, raw, ambient and very rock ‘n’ roll. The music improvised made them grin ear-to-ear and drop their jaws to the floor. Immediately these two very ginger dudes knew a band of epic proportions had undeniably formed.
The sound of Pyro Pyro is the culmination of Mike’s unconventional guitar/bass playing on his custom instrument simply known as the “Bassitar” (a hybrid instrument with three bass strings and four guitar strings), Chris’ powerful drumming and the duo’s knack for singing 2-part vocal harmony. Influenced by Nirvana, The Beatles, Queens of the Stone Age, and many more – the duo seeks to carve a unique sound of their own.
The band has spent the last year working in the studio on a variety of original music for their 1st EP to be released in 2019. They come from a mindset where both, tone and songs are essential – while attempting to challenge the amount of sound capable of two people playing live (without the modern assistance of computers or backing tracks).
Meet your new (and perhaps only) favorite ginger rock band.
