Los Angeles duo The Bots (Mikaiah and Anaiah Lei) today revealed a new single entitled "No One Knows," which is premiering exclusively via Brooklyn Vegan: The band is currently putting the finishing touches on their forthcoming debut full-length album, which is due out later this summer on FADER Label.

The Bots just wrapped dates supporting Dropkick Murphys on the east coast. Tonight, the band performs at Baby's All Right in Brooklyn, NY (Tickets). See below for a complete list of upcoming dates, including a recently announced show with Black Sabbath in London at Hyde Park on July 4th.

Last month, The Bots performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, earning the band abundant praise from Rolling Stone ("Most Likely To Succeed"), Creative Loafing ("One of the best young bands at Coachella this year"), Buzzbands.LA ("Off to a perfect start"), and more. 

Los Angeles brothers and band-mates, Mikaiah Lei (Lead Vocal, Guitar, Bass) and Anaiah Lei (Drums & Percussions, Backing Vocal), recorded their first album together when they were just 15 and 12, respectively. They self-released their first three albums and completed two Vans Warped Tours, two AFROPUNK Fests, countless European festivals, and support tours with Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Blur, Damon Albarn's Africa Express, Refused, and Bad Brains, among others. Fall 2013 saw their debut release with FADER Label, the four-song EP Sincerely Sorry, with a full-length release slated for the summer of 2014. New York Times Magazine predicts, "They are on the cusp of stardom."

More information on the new album will be revealed in the coming weeks.
