Facebook REPTIEL website Bandcamp


REPTIEL was formed in 2009 by members of seminal San Francisco bands The Cubby Creatures, Thee More Shallows and The Druggles. The REPTIELians claim to practice “ritual musick” in order to summon their stories and sounds resulting in psychedelic prog rock songs about ancient legends, fantasy worlds and distant planets. Only rarely does REPTIEL perform live due to the various members’ agoraphobia, superstitiousness, and severe anxiety.

Their sound was well described by KFJC DJ Mitch LeMay as "tribal psych inspired by fantasy, arcane harmony/imagery and modernist/eclectic collaboration. They also ROCK quite substantially!"
