Brian Ray, Oliver Leiber & Lucrecia López Sanz : The Bayonets

Posted: Updated:

Brian Ray, Oliver Lieber, and Lucrecia López Sanz are ‘The Bayonets’, and they're gearing up for the release of their new CD "Crash Boom Bang!"

Fun facts about The Bayonets: (Source: Wikipedia)

1) Is an independent rock band based in Los Angeles, California. Formed in 2011 by Brian Ray and Oliver Leiber after years of collaboration on Brian Ray's two solo albums, Mondo Magneto (2005) and This Way Up (2009). Oliver had the idea to form a band together, so they got together to write a series of singles for release throughout 2013, beginning on valentines day with the song "Sucker for Love" and followed 3 months later by "Smartphone". Stevie Van Zandt separately named both songs the "Coolest Song in the World" on "Little Steven's Underground Garage" radio show broadcast on terrestrial and satellite stations worldwide.

2) The Bayonets' first single was released on February 14, 2013. A music video was also released in conjunction with Steven Van Zandt's radio edit and a wider radio release. The video was directed by Brian French and Linda Cevallos-French, and features both Brian and Oliver playing various characters. Brian likened the video to '1974 TV dating gameshows'. Sucker For Love did well in the music charts, entering at #19 and peaking at #9 on the Classic Rock Radio charts between March 31 and April 6. The success of Sucker also made The Bayonets front page news in UK music magazine Clash. Capitalizing on the massive success of their debut single, the band decided to push back the release of their subsequent singles by 7 weeks.

3) late April, 2013, The Bayonets confirmed that they would be playing shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They were backed by 60's cover band Nube 9, whose lineup also features Lucrecia López Sanz of The Bayonets. They played 4 shows at 3 venues: Faena Hotel, the MOD Club, and Mr. Jones Blues Bar. The tour was rounded off with a performance on the Duro de Domar TV show.

Their new CD "Crash Boom Bang!" drops next Tuesday, July 29th.
