Watch The Bots Perform Live for Bedstock

Today, LA duo The Bots join a stellar lineup of bands performing from their beds and hotel rooms as a show of solidarity for the thousands of sick kids around the U.S. who will spend the holiday season in their hospital beds as part of Bedstock. Click HERE to watch The Bots perform a stripped-down acoustic version of their song "No One Knows" from a hospital bed in Portland, Oregon last month. Other artists performing for Bedstock include: Chromeo, Mark Foster, Madison Beer, Raury, Langhorne Slim, Shakey Graves, and more. For more information and to watch all of the performances, visit www.bedstockfest.com


Bedstock coincides with Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back after the mass consumption of Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and Cyber Monday. Bedstock supports MyMusicRx, a free-of-charge program that infuses the hospital environment with live music and offers seriously ill kids and teens 24/7 access to digital instruments, music lessons, games, concerts and personal artist greetings at www.mymusicrx.org.

Additionally, last week, The Bots were featured on KCET's "Artbound Presents Studio A" for an interview and live performances of their songs: "All Of Them (Wide Awake)", "Ubiquitous", "Blinded", "Bad Friends", "All I Really Want", and "5:17".


The Bots' highly anticipated debut Pink Palms was released in October on FADER Label. To purchase the album now, click HERE. Pink Palms was recorded in Los Angeles and produced by Justin Warfield, with additional production by Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner.

Zane Lowe premiered "All I Really Want", the album's first single, on his popular BBC Radio 1 show in the UK, proclaiming, "The Bots make brilliant, weird rock & roll music. And the future - a big part of it - belongs to them." NPR Music called the song "an absolute knockout" and the full-length album went on to receive rave reviews from LA Times ("a mash of frenetic garage rock and lush indie rock"), Earmilk ("edgy garage rock at its finest"), The Guardian ("stylish indie rock with real substance"), and many more.

Click HERE to watch the band's must-see music video for "All I Really Want" which was praised by Wired ("The Internettiest Music Video That Ever Internetted"), Fast Company ("A tech-infused spoof ... an engaging social commentary"), Kerrang! ("Prepare to get a little bit confused [in a good way]"), Dazed & Confused ("The Bots satirize the Buzzfeed-ification of everyday life with their very own 'Botsfeed'"), and more.

The band is also currently starring in Mitsubishi's new "Every Mile Matters" TV commercial. The national spot features their track "All of Them (Wide Awake)" and can be viewed HERE. To watch the band perform a stripped-down version of the song for NPR's Tiny Desk Concerts, click HERE.
