Shoegaze is supposed to refer to guitar bands that are running their instruments through so many effects pedals that they spend the entire show staring at the ground. For Ringo, whose sets can be notoriously loud, figuring out the logistics of that sound can involve sometimes-problematic guitar-change choreography. It's worth it, though, says Frazier, who considers Ringo Deathstarr a guitar-led band first and foremost.

"The guitar is the leader of the band, it's the thing that we're trying to present to everyone," he says. "This whole style of music seems like the perfect way to have a guitar be front and center."
