Richard England and Michael Bayliss have been now joined by Dealing With Damage and Desperate Measures drummer James Sherry who brings his “Jerry Nolan” inspired style to the band.
Los Santos is looking for new collaborators, singers, guitarists, and keyboard-droners to record new songs and join the Los Santos for live shows/touring. The sound of Los Santos will be heavier and leaning towards their love of American noise legends Husker Du and Thin White Rope.
