Pyramiddd is dddone. On Thursday, May 13, Portland’s Pyramiddd announced on their Myspace page that they were changing their name back to the deliciously profane Starfucker.
“So, yes it was a long winter. We’re back out and Pyramiddd is dead and buried (except for our Facebook profile, which we’re working on), and a West Coast tour is ahead of us,” the Myspace post read.
In an interview with the Portland Mercury in September 2009, the bouncy indie synthtronica foursome explained why they decided to take submissions from fans for a new name.
“The name has been a problem for us in a lot of ways. We’ve missed out on opening slots with bands we really like, and we hope to tour Europe soon where there is already a Starfucker.”
Name-change brouhaha aside, the more exciting news from these teen dreamboats is they’re embarking on a West Coast tour with their new side projects—Fake Drugs and Skeletron. On Friday, May 21, the dance popsters will swing back into Boise for a show at the Neurolux with locals Vagerfly.
