The Frights Bio
Epitaph Records is pleased to welcome surf-punk band The Frights to its roster. The San Diego-based band features Mikey Carnevale (vocals/guitar), Richard Dotson (bass), Marc Finn (drums) and Jordan Clark (guitar).
Formed in 2012, The Frights made their debut with 2013’s Dead Beach EP and released their self-titled full-length later that year. Their sophomore album You Are Going To Hate This arrived in 2016, debuting on the CMJ Top 200 chart. Produced by FIDLAR’s Zac Carper, You Are Going To Hate This earned acclaim from outlets like Brooklyn Vegan (who praised the title track as a “super catchy blend of Weezer, SoCal pop punk, and Burger-y garage rock”).
"We couldn't be more excited to start a new path with Epitaph,” says Carnevale. “Some of our favorite bands have been on this label and it seems pretty bizarre that we're joining them. Super, super stoked."
