Love Jerks Release Debut Album Today, New Video,  SF Release Party on 11/3

San Francisco duo Love Jerks have released their debut album, Million Movies, today. Addtionally, they have premiered the video for their song "Holding Out For A Rocker" with Ghettoblaster. The offspring of two lead singers-Bryan Garza of Scissors for Lefty (vocals, guitar) and Rebecca Garza-Bortman of Happy Fangs and My First Earthquake (vocals, bass)-Love Jerks was born when these two jerks, yes, fell in love. Listen and share "Holding Out For A Rocker" here and stream or download Million Movies here.

Bryan, on the song: "With Holding Out for A Rocker, we wanted to make something for our fellow weirdos on their own search for their equally-eccentric matches. Rebecca is truly my Princess Leia, Modern Day(ahh)! And everyday that I can be her Purple Rain Peter Pan, life is grand! "

Rebecca, on the song: "I know what you're thinking because it was my first thought when we wrote the bridge for Holding Out: 'Fiiiinally! A song with a robo-solo.' Robots in conversation about intimacy and consent-now that's what I call the future of hotness!"

On Million Movies, Love Jerks' debut full-length, wry lyricism, playful melodies, and tendency to be tongue-in-cheek belie a deep reverence for the pop song as an art form. The influence of New Wave and art-rock titans like David Bowie, Debbie Harry, Jarvis Cocker, and Cyndi Lauper seeps from every guitar riff and each warm, infectious synth hook. More moody, modern torch-carriers like Tame Impala can be heard in the wistful spaces between vocals, which the singers share in a kind of sonic banter.

Love Jerks will welcome Million Movies into the world in a way that only they would-by throwing an over-the-top rock opera release party at San Francisco's favorite spot for a 1950s prom, The Make-Out Room. The Million Movie Rock Opera will weave together the fantastical story behind the songs of their debut album together, without forgetting their origins as the lead singers of two different bands, Bryan with Scissors for Lefty & Rebecca with My First Earthquake. Both bands will be reuniting for the night to perform. The party will be held on Saturday, Nov 3. This will be the first opportunity to buy Million Movies on vinyl. MANDATORY DANCE PARTY!!! to follow.
