Noisey Talks with the Cholo Goth Pioneers Prayers in New Episode of “Noisey Meets”


LOS ANGELES, CA (May 20, 2015) – VICE’s music and culture channel Noisey is excited to release “Noisey Meets: Prayers.” The latest installment in the “Noisey Meets” series, the episode features an in-depth interview with the pioneering electronic/industrial “cholo goth” duo Prayers.

Formed in 2013, Prayers have spent the last two years transforming the sound and look of modern goth music with vocalist Leafar Seyer and producer Dave Parley at the helm. Both Mexican immigrants, the duo explain how they don’t fit into the cholo or goth scenes, how they ended up joining their San Diego gang, and how their music is about brotherhood.

VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet. In 2012, Noisey teamed with YouTube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music. As an editorial resource, reaches millions of people a month, and has become a go-to source for weird music news, artist-sourced content, and VICE’s signature offbeat coverage. Noisey throws parties and shows worldwide, hosts innovative online listening parties for new records, and produces videos for the best artists in the world, like MIA, Die Antwoord, A$AP Rocky, and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Noisey is more than just a music site—music is the lens with which we explore youth culture all over the world.
