LightSpeedGo was formed in 2013 with the simple goal of creating quality punk rock in the vintage west coast style that reigned supreme in the mid to late nineties. LightSpeedgo’s unique style and energetic live performances have made them a fixture in the Arizona and Southern California punk rock community. They are featured regularly on “Go Punk Yourself” on 98 KUPD, a local Hubbard Broadcasting station. The band has already shared the stage with the likes of Teenage Bottle Rocket, The Copyrights, Masked Intruder, Pulley, Implants, Adolescents, Left Alone, Ten Foot Pole, Good Riddance, Strung Out, Flatliners, Authority Zero, Bad Cop/Bad Cop, Only Crime, The Ataris, Nekromantix, Success, Guttermouth, Toy Guitar, Shell Corporation, Punk Rock Karaoke and the Parasites. Upcoming shows include Stung Out and Face to Face.
The first EP entitled “New Direction” was met with positive reviews from both fans and major media outlets alike. The bands newest album, a seven inch split with punk legends Guttermouth, is set to be released in the fall of 2015. Jeff Forrest of Double Time Studios and Bob Hoag of Flying Blanket Recording were enlisted to help LightSpeedgo achieve a clean and professional sound of the highest quality. Furthermore, a full length record is planned for December with Bob Hoag being called upon again for the upcoming project.
LightSpeedGo will look to embark on both national and regional tours in effort to promote each new record to the fullest extent. This is only the beginning for LightSpeedGo which has already accomplished a great deal in such a short period of time.
