Readership Hostile


As 2012 drew to its wintery close, Readership Hostile gathered in Los Angeles. Prior bandmates Adrienne Pearson (vocals, formerly of Radio Vago and Shoot Out The Lights) and Benn Ra (guitar, ex-Hatesex/Frank the Baptist) recruited drummer Christian Omar Madrigal Izzo (Rozz Williams/Chokebore) and British bassist Paul Rogers (Jonneine Zapata/Arithmetic of War) to explore their darkly ornate yet visceral vision.

As 2012 drew to its wintery close, Readership Hostile gathered in Los Angeles. Prior bandmates Adrienne Pearson (vocals, formerly of Radio Vago and Shoot Out The Lights) and Benn Ra (guitar, ex-Hatesex/Frank the Baptist) recruited drummer Christian Omar Madrigal Izzo (Rozz Williams/Chokebore) and British bassist Paul Rogers (Jonneine Zapata/Arithmetic of War) to explore their darkly ornate yet visceral vision. Swiftly evolving into a cathartic collision of deathrock, goth, early punk and contemporary psych, Readership Hostile unleashed a string of startling performances across its native Los Angeles, driven by its effervescent, force-of-nature frontwoman. “The first thing I tell people is ‘Behold the spectacle that is ... Adrienne Pearson’!" said Ra. “She is a true rock ‘n’ roll performer in every sense of the word.

I have a hard time not watching what she is doing while we are on stage.” Songwriting all the while, Readership soon had more than enough material for their debut release. “I wake up early every morning and do stream-of-consciousness writing in my journal. I write lyrics the same way,” Pearson explained. “I never know what a song is going to be about until the music informs me. A note or sound can trigger a phrase in my head - it's all abstract from there.” A 6-song, self-titled EP, recorded and co-produced by Mephisto Walz mainman (and former Christian Death guitarist) Bari Bari, was completed within months of the band’s forming for release at the turn of 2014. A series of shows followed, including an appearance at the Los Angeles edition of the 2015 Convergence Festival.

During this period, Christian and Paul left the band. Benn and Adrienne immediately began writing new material. With the new year, comes a new rhythm section. Michael Collins (drums) and Bryan Yazzie (bass) joined and immediately the band went into writing mode for a new release. The band recently announced that they will embarking on a European tour in October 2016. Read more on Last.fm.
