Prism Bitch is a hard rock band that beamed down in 2016 from the dust and wind of New Mexico. The group started as a four piece and asexually reproduced an additional member in 2017, resulting in a 5 piece mix of heavy guitar/keyboard layers blended with pop hooks/melodies/harmonies and occasional total noise freakouts - often compared to The Pixies and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. From humble beginnings at a punk rock coffeehouse open mic to nominations in the Weekly Alibi’s "Best of Burque” music awards for 2017 and 2018 (Best New Band, Best Party Band, and Best Stage Presence), Prism Bitch has been privileged to share stages with Treepeople, Shonen Knife, and Le Butcherettes. In September 2018, Prism Bitch completed a West Coast tour with Built to Spill.
Prism Bitch released their self-titled EP this November through Freakout Records. The EP features 5 new songs, recorded with engineer Toshi Kasai, known for his work with The Melvins, Big Business and Foo Fighters.
Prism Bitch has a reputation for wild and performative shows, professionalism and friendship.
