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.

In addition to the name change news, PYRAMID are will self-release their debut UK single via their new imprint DDD featuring "Medicine," from 2009's Jupiter EP. "Medicine" will be available exclusively at London's Rough Trade stores as a limited edition, deluxe white vinyl 7"....

For more information on all things PYRAMID, check out the guys' new website here: www.pyramidlovesyou.com [PR]

As of this second, that link just redirects to their MySpace that still says Starfucker. Pyramid was not one of the ideas that was proposed here on BrooklynVegan.com. Pictures from their recent show at Santos Party House, HERE.

I'ma tell you one time: Starfucker's new name is lacking something.

I guess they didn't research this name first:

The PyraMEHS
Dirty Pyramids
The Pyramid Girls
School of Seven Pyramids

Pyramids the hydra head band is awesome.

Good thing they changed the name. They would never get big, famous and rich without the change.

why did you change the picture of the band? original was them wearing womens clothes.

Posted by Anonymous | October 14, 2009 1:58 PM

I'd love to hear their reasoning on why 'pyramid' was such a worthwhile name?! Must be some real einstein shit going on!?

Posted by Anonymous | October 14, 2009 2:05 PM

2:05- It was the only suggestion offered that didn't include the word 'fucker'

PYRAMID is a powerful name. There is something ancient and great about pyramids. I don't think about pyramids too much, probably most people don't, because it is an obscure ancient structure. This name draws me to this band, I must know more..

What's a band name without some sort of animal in it?

They need to be Pyramid Wolf of Bear Pyramid or something like that.

Back to the drawing board, fellows.

Wasn't there a surf/instrumental band in the 50s called the Pyramids? How about changing the name to Pyraminx (that's a twistee 3D puzzle that me and my friends in school played with)? Anyway, there's a band from Northern California named "fuck" that's been around since the early 90s. They've been selling albums and playing gigs thanks to the Internet. Pyramid is a good name but I hope this band don't have to rename themselves AGAIN.
