Easily one of the best rock bands in Albuquerque, they've also been making a name for themselves nationally. The basic trio is Steve Hammond on electric guitar and vocals, Noah Wolters on keys and Andy Lutz on drums, often incorporating numerous other local musicians.
Principal songwriter Steve Hammond is adept at melding country and metal genres almost seamlessly, and with an oddball sense of humor that often draws comparisons to Ween or similar hybrid musical surrealists.
The Leeches performed live on Music to Soothe the Savage Beast on October 14th. Engineered by Simon Welter. DJ Caterwaul hosted the show.
