A FUZZY NERD MAKING FUZZY MUSIC
Smoochyface is an indie band based in Atlanta, GA. Incorporating narrative elements from video games, cartoons, & comic books, Smoochyface combines the churn of fuzzy guitars with live improvisation for a unique experience in geek rock.
Founded by long-time composer / producer / touring musician R.Garcia (of the band Snoot) as an outlet for his more personal musings, Smoochyface began performing live in 2017 in support of its debut EP, The Cracks Are Where the Light Shines Brightest, a 4-part suite of music inspired by the ‘Legend of Zelda’ video game series.
Since its inception, Smoochyface has performed at the Southern-Fried Gameroom Expo (ATL), and MAGFest (DC). Garcia is no stranger to the convention circuit, having performed with past projects at DragonCon (ATL), as well as Orlando Nerd Fest (FL) and Nerdapalooza (Orlando, FL). Additionally, Smoochyface can be found advocating for LGBTQ+, abuse victims, and civil rights, through Garcia’s own Nophest Music Festival, a charity event now in its 12th year of operations.
In 2018, Smoochyface released a new EP, Broken Light in the Black Forest High, and a video game, ‘Epic Snack Run,’ which is a 2D platformer about two dogs stealing a car to go on an all-night junk food joyride. The band was also booked to perform at MAGLabs in DC.
The band’s future projects include a 40-minute rock opera inspired by the ‘Steven Universe’ animated series, an EP of covers, and an extensive series of tour dates starting in the fall of 2018.
