Scissors For Lefty are an indie rock band based in San Francisco, California. They released their debut album, Bruno, in 2005 on Rough Trade Records (UK).[1]

Biography[edit]

Three of the band's members, Bryan Garza, Peter Krimmel and James Krimmel, met in San Luis Obispo while attending college, and later moved to San Francisco, where they currently reside. The band consists of two sets of families - Bryan, Robby, Steve, and Eric Garza, with Peter and James Krimmel.

Scissors For Lefty have released three full length albums; their 2005 debut, Bruno, self-produced and released by the band, and 2007's Underhanded Romance, which was released by Eenie Meenie Records on June 12, 2007. The album was released on the iTunes Store on May 29, 2007. They released a 5 song EP Consumption Junction on Oct 24, 2008. Their third full length album "Bangs & Lashes" was released on iTunes on Oct 29, 2014. The video for the title track was released on May 6, 2013.

Local radio station, Live 105, chose the band to play on the main stage of their BFD 2007 festival, along with Bloc Party, Social Distortion, Queens of the Stone Age, Interpol, and Kaiser Chiefs. Each year, Live 105 chooses a local band they think has a good chance to be successful, and gives them a chance to play to a much bigger audience. BFD was held at the Shoreline Amphitheater on June 9, 2007.

Scissors For Lefty has toured with Arctic Monkeys, The Smashing Pumpkins, Erasure, Fiery Furnaces, Dirty Pretty Things, The Matches, The 1990's, The Hedrons, Juliette and the Licks, Locksley, French Kicks, Fiery Furnaces, and Metric.
