So after holding a contest for a new, cuss-free, moniker, local band Starfucker has picked a new name: PYRAMID. I guess the ALL CAPS thing is part of it. Take it away, press release:
Starfucker Announce New Name, PYRAMID!
It’s been an exciting year for Portland, OR’s favorite breakout band, Starfucker, and today is an exceptional day. Last month, just as the four-piece were poised to set sail on an extensive North American tour, they announced a name change contest that allowed fans to play a pivotal role in re-naming the band. After many votes and infinite good ideas, the guys have chosen PYRAMID as their new moniker. They will perform their last ever show as Starfucker at Portland’s venerable Wonder Ballroom on Halloween, so if you have a hankering for infectious beats and a costume contest judged by some of the members of the band, then look no further.
Yeah, that works. I'm not one to really care about band names, so Pyramid—er, PYRAMID—seems to fit the band's sound pretty well, especially if they keep with that rainbow graphic.
