Today 100 gecs share the second offering from their highly-anticipated sophomore album 10000 gecs with the track ‘Doritos & Fritos’. Led by a distorted guitar and high-energy slapped bass sounding like timewarped homage to early 90’s Alternative Rock heroes, the new song provides another peek into what tricks the band has up their sleeves on their forthcoming album.
‘Doritos & Fritos’ follows the lead single off 10000 gecs ‘mememe’, which was described by their Pitchfork cover story as “an ebullient carnival of ska-inflected verses that bounce off a chorus of thrash guitars and a squiggling synth line.” The new 10000 gecs song also follows 100 gecs’ sold-out North American tour, where gecs teased the unreleased songs ‘Hollywood Baby’, ‘757’ and ‘what’s that smell?’.
This summer, 100 gecs will be performing at multiple festivals including Coachella this weekend and next, So What Music Festival in May, Governors Ball, Bonnaroo and Primavera Sound in June, Lollapalooza, Capitol Hill Block Party and Osheaga in July, Reading Leeds in August and Firefly in September.

100 gecs, the duo of Dylan Brady and Laura Les, planted their flag on the proverbial pop culture moon with their 2019 debut album 1000 gecs, which was heralded by The New Yorker as, “an impressively precise maximalist exercise with no rules” and “utterly unhinged in the best way possible” by GQ. The innovative project captured the hearts of fans and critics alike – selling out all of their live shows to date along with The New York Times calling it, “some of the savviest pop music of the year,” and Rolling Stone dubbing it “one of 2019’s most exciting debuts.” In just a few months following the release of 1000 gecs, the band went from playing their first concert from inside the video game Minecraft to selling out shows across the country, proving that their rabid, rapidly multiplying fanbase doesn’t only exist in the far corners of the internet. After their world tour was postponed in the summer of 2020, Brady and Les kept rolling with the release of 1000 gecs and The Tree of Clues, a rework of the original album featuring collaborations from the likes of A. G. Cook, Fall Out Boy, Charli XCX, Rico Nasty, as well as crowd sourced contributions by fans. The transformative release was described by NME as a “brain-melting, genre-crushing vision of pop’s future.”
