The best fucking virtual band in San Diego

Meet the Band

When we first started, Golden Plates was just one dude living in a harry potter closet in SLC, Utah. He soon recruited a pair of aliens from the planet Kolob, who promptly left top go back to their home planet to tell them about good music. Left with a hole in his heart and lineup, Elder Brycen cloned himself, and this brings us to our current lineup.


Golden Plates is an alternative indie dream fit for movie soundtracks. -Slug Magazine

Golden Plates brings a distinct new wave/post punk energy, akin to the influential rock stylings of Ian Curtis and Paul Banks. - Spill

Golden Plates harkens back to pioneers of the genre, artists like The Cure, David Bowie and Queens of the Stone Age. - The Static Dive

Unique sunique sounding vocals, always vibrant instrumentation, and ultimately lyrics that are personal and profound - WWAM
