The Vampire Lezbos are a politically & socially charged punk rock band that sings about what most won't, or can't...and in true punk detail. They question everything...including those 'taboo' subjects which many people invest much of their identities in, and are thus, unpopular to question. And this is where the controversy begins. This is what makes them one of the most controversial bands in the world. Some like to call them a conspiracy oriented punk band, which is dubious at best. The word 'conspiracy' today is used in a negative way to derail any serious, thought provoking discussion, when it doesn't agree with the official lie. In other words, it is thrown around to ridicule or dilute an idea, except when it plays into the hands of those in power. One must always remember...where there is 'conspiracy theory', there is also 'conspiracy fact'. It is also helpful to remember that whenever you get more than 2 people in any room, people 'conspire', even about the most mundane of things. Its a fact...a way of life, unfortunately. Its not just our world, its your world too. What they write about has been thoroughly researched. And on the contrary, most who ridicule specific topics they write about, seem to have done little, to no research, of their own while reacting with arrogance, scorn and condescension. Unpaid foot soldiers for a cause they don't understand. After all, they surely would have heard about it if it was true, or so they think. You know... knowing without knowing. In fact, research and questioning has lead the Lezbos into a world where there is always a 'story behind the story'. 'Pure truth' lurking in the shadows of a world living a facade on the scale of a universal 'Truman Show'. Living in a world, hundreds, if not thousands of years behind what should be, based on science and technologies that currently exist, but are not being shared with the masses, for political and financial implications. Most of these themes are just not reported or talked about in the mainstream press, for fear of losing power over the masses, and after all, thats what it all comes down to. Fear=Control, Fear=$. And while we're at it...Talk - Action = Zero, Talk - Research = Stupidity. To quote Michael Ellner: "Just look at us. Everything is backwards; everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information and religions destroy spirituality." This was not by chance. But the clincher is this...We are living in a holographic universe. Any division between you and I, has been manufactured by those who gain power from us believing that. For division is synthetic, as we are all just individual expressions of a greater single consciousness. This universal 'mind' knows all that is and expresses it through us, through intuition and innate knowing. Realizing this will help dissolve those make believe bars we have allowed ourselves to be caged in with, and at the same time, strips the power from those few who try and control us through their narrow minded version of the matrix. So this is where we begin, by peeling back those layers of matrix induced lies, so that we all may finally realize our true potential, and enjoy our time here in this existence. So let's go!

Born in the summer of Orwell's 1984, in Spokane, Washington...USA. Time was also served in Portland, Maine; Seattle, Washington; San Francisco, CA; Los Angeles, CA and Auckland, New Zealand. They are currently based in Portland, Oregon and are finishing up their newest record. Summer 2009 will see the release of their latest album, as well as remixed/remastered re-releases of all their older albums on cd and digital! An extensive U.S./European tour supporting these releases will follow. A 3 month/89 city U.S. tour, starting June 1st, is currently being set-up by Haywire Booking []

*In response to the degrading, unfulfilling, misguided and soul destroying way society has been set up to make those in power even more powerful and richer, and us all drones of the state or corporate entities which pull the strings... anyone tired of their jobs or living life as usual is encouraged to drop out, get a road worthy vehicle and join us on tour! We will see what we can do about discounts at the door, if not altogether free, to all shows for anyone traveling with us... People are encouraged to set up their own tables or booths, selling or bartering their wares. Some tabling suggestions would be for organic vegan food(cooked and raw), non chemical laced drinks, zines, jewelry, clothes, patches, stickers, books, information, etc. or services like massage, body work, baby sitting, tarot card readings, whatever. In this way, we hope to be a catalyst for greater positive change, and a better role model for the way society can be, as well, put some teeth back into 'punk' and what a parody it has become to itself. We hope what comes out of this is something much larger and more permanent, perhaps an intentional community of like minded people who have grown weary of our propaganda, disinformation, toxic and fear based world, a place which is not nearly so dampening to the spirit. A place where real knowledge, truth and community spirit will thrive, which will no longer isolate us from one another or ourselves, unless that is what we choose. *

Any promoters/venues, on either continent, able to offer up shows, are encouraged to write the Lezbos or Rob @ Haywire Booking. Additionally, the Lezbos will be playing a large reunion show in their birth town of Spokane, Washington, on July 25th 2009...their 25th anniversary! Their name was taken from a Cramps song, which originally came from a 1960's movie. Touring of the States & Canada started in 1985 and continued on through the nineties. Due to changing attitudes of certain bandmates at that time though, the Lezbos then reluctantly slipped into low gear. It was during these down times that the Lezbos lost a couple of band members. Passed on to better places, perhaps. These are constant reminders to live life to the fullest everyday, and no longer let mediocrity seize the day. Freedom after all, is more vital than a job! How free are you? So after this unintentional and somber break, the spirit of '76 once again illuminated and they regrouped. They then hit the road again in 2005, after 10 years of not touring, on what was their most extensive tour to date. A 50 city U.S. tour.

Joey Shithead of D.O.A. fame, helped the band early on by sharing shows with them a number of times in both countries. Joey also helped produce the 2nd Lezbos LP, 'Patch Of Blue', as well as sing back-ups with Wimpy, from D.O.A. and the Subhumans.

Ten U.S./Canadian tours enabled the Lezbos to play with some amazing and not so amazing bands like: D.O.A., Adrenalin O.D., Dough Boys, Circle Jerks, 7 Seconds, Queers, Fugazi, Faith No More, Gang Of Four, Bad Religion, Toxic Reasons, Nation Of Ulysses, Operation Ivy, All, Adolescents, Battalion Of Saints, Poison Idea, Neurosis, Verbal Abuse, Beyond Possession, Shudder To Think, Skinyard, Filth, Raunchettes, JFA, Dead Milkmen, L7, etc. They headlined over Nirvana and Everclear during their early years.

The LEZBOS are a SOCIO-POLITICAL BAND with lyrical content focusing on that of SUPPRESSED KNOWLEDGE and OPPRESSION OF THE MASSES. Questioning the unquestionable. Perhaps the only RAW, ORGANIC, VEGAN POLITICAL PUNK BAND in the WORLD?!

In no particular order: impending 'forced' vaccinations against the worlds populace for the false flag 'hoaxed' bird flu epidemic(among others),which has been weaponized from the 1918 Influenza virus with toxin laden product and potential microchipping...the product of eugenics and surveillance campaigns. RESIST THE VAX! RESIST THE CONCENTRATION CAMPS!..and LIVE; the extensive 'alien' presence on earth, known to most of the world's governments; time travel made possible in the 1940's; the earth being hollow(as are all planetary bodies, including the moon), and resided in; HIV having nothing to do with Aids; large artificial structures on Mars and the Moon, indicating an ancient culture; preserving the right to bear arms amidst the governments attempts at banning them(Nazi Germany did the exact thing right before they went after the Jews, and the first U.S. gun control legislation was taken word-for-word from the Nazi Weapons Act of 1938, and enacted in 1968 to quell the power of the Black Panthers and other activists); active deep underground and undersea cities and bases; the 'green' movement being used to distract, tax and subjugate, by corporations who don't give a shit about the environment(more environmentalists need to look into 'global warming' alot further and not just jump onto this're being used. Global warming is happening on all the planets. Al Gore is an oilman! See 'Occidental' Oil); massive media censorship and disinformation being used as a propaganda tool to coerce, confuse and divide...high treason; our 2 party state actually only being 1 party, 'Their' party; synthetic scarcity being used to create synthetic value for most of our resources; deadly effects of genetically engineered food; free energy suppression by the oil industry, including engines which run on water; technology suppression that is keeping us artificially in the past a tleast a few 100 years, perhaps thousands; the space shuttle being a technological joke compared to the 'flying saucers' the military is currently flying...covertly, courtesy of technology extracted from the third reich and their saucer/free energy program; zero population growth being pushed by a eugenicist agenda; their 'problem-reaction-solution'(Hegelian Dialectic) method of getting what they want from us; animal rights(c'mon fuckers, its about time!); the powerful health implications of an organic, raw vegan diet; chemtrail spraying of our skies to damage our immune systems; most disease(and aging) being the symptoms of an inadequate diet, chemical/metal poisoning and dehydration; bombing of the Oklahoma Federal building to push through the 'anti-terrorism' bill and more currently, the dropping of the World Trade Center to push through the "Patriot" Act, as well as conquer middle-east oil reserves and ultimately turning this world into a hyper-surveillanced, centralised police state...remember, there will never be an end to a 'War On Terrorism' especially when much of it is state sponsored; Bin Laden is just a smoke and mirrors campaign since he has always been a CIA asset(Saddam too); the main use of the Patriot Act to go after 'domestic' enemies and resistance to globalization, or those who would resist the coming Orwellian State; the coming micro-chipped population courtesy of a fear instilled, forced vaccination program; vote rigging in the U.S. for decades; the impending draft to continue the neo-con agenda of restructuring the world and decreasing the numbers of those whose allegiance to their country is an impediment to the overall goal of global centralization of power; concentration camps in the U.S. already operational; the HAARP electro-magnetic weapon in Alaska with mind & weather control applications; New World Order/globalist politics; a world corporate dictatorship now in control of most governments; the handful of 'elite' families, beyond the corporations, who actually are running the world as we know it through secret societies and shadow governments; Rampant eugenics programs in the states which backed the human genome project, impart, to discover genetic weakneses of each race which did lead to race specific weapons; suppression of cancer cures and most other cures to perpetuate a sick medical industry(now controlled by the petro-pharmaceutical cartel) and a thriving eugenics program controlled by the pharmaceutical industry, among others; vaccinations being utterly damaging to the immune system and the impending forced vaccinations in response to the bird flu hoax or some other contrived scare; the 'Codex' being ratified by all countries in the WTO...This law which goes into effect on Dec. 31st 2009 and will eliminate what we call 'organic' food, forever... as well as reduce all vitamins and supplements to levels so low, they will be useless. One will have to get a prescription from a doctor to get anything stronger; the NSA listening to all the worlds communications; right after ridicule, when all else fails, the most favored way to eliminate bad press and exposing the lie is murder-by-suicide; keeping us fighting about 'non-issues' to keep our attention diverted from whats really going on; the use of religion and mainstream science to conceal what and who we really are; indoctrination disguised as education in our schools to produce apathetic consumers who perpetuate the system for the benefit of the few; the suppressed knowledge that this universe is a subjective creation of our minds, and with that knowledge, can be changed...the list goes on. The bottom line being that we have all been lied to royally and with this information, society could finally know true liberation, true peace, true love & true spiritual evolution.

So there will be no more tolerance for racism, sexism, genderism, ageism, specieism, homophobia and pro-choice/pro life contention. Buying into these distractions are anything but 'punk'. We live in a free world or we don't. People have the right to do as they please as long as it doesn't hinder anyone else's liberties. Morality is subjective. Your's is for you and no one else. You have been used and distracted by these issues, time and time again, to hide even deeper secrets from humanity. "If the kids are divided, they will never be united". Why? To keep our evolution stagnant. Knowledge over another is power. Fighting with each other over these 'non-issues' keeps us imprisoned, and anything but free. We must stop falling for these lies and distractions. So no democrats and no republicans. They serve the same people and those people are not you, got it? Besides, voting is it? Electronic voting with no paper trail is a sham. No one religion over another. They are all the same stories. The different chronicling of the same extraterrestrial species visitations, coming 'down from the heavens' and interacting with our ancestors AND manipulating our species. Stop falling for all of this disinformation that keeps you in your box. It keeps us all separated and fighting amongst each other while this empowers... those in power, and they are not you...yet. Currently, 'they' are an ilk of people who play the 'bully of the sandbox' role quite well. A very clever but emotionally and spiritually immature people, obsessed with eschatology, who are never satiated. The richest of families, the most powerful corporations and their minions that grovel at their feet. They can't stop 'taking' from those without, even if it means the world would be much better for everyone-including them. A world they would no longer have to control from the shadows. A world free to pursue its dreams. Alas, as easy as it would be to be scornful & vindictive of these people...we, the representatives of the new world we would like to see come to fruition, need to give them amnesty for all that they have done. there is no other way it will come to be or can happen in a peaceful way. We are all the same, all one. There is no space in space, meaning that we are all truly connected. When one person or one creature is oppressed, we all are. We exist to be free and exercise the power of choice to determine our own pathway, our own dharma, when we are not harming anyone else. True liberation exists now, with your consent. Ours has been given and we will not tolerate otherwise. Today, we must start living and being the change we desire to see in the world. This alone can be the biggest impetus for a brighter tomorrow. The future is now and humanity cannot wait any longer.
