Starfucker seeks a new name

placeholder image

    The dance-popsters known as Starfucker have a major revelation: They weren’t thinking ahead when they came up with the name Starfucker.

    “The truth is we never thought we’d make it this far with Starfucker,” the band said in a statement (courtesy of PASTE). “It started as just a fun little house-show project, but now that we have the opportunity to do this full-time, travel and continue making music, we don’t feel like the name makes sense anymore.”

    It’s with that in mind that the Portland-based band is changing its name. And it will be putting that career making (or breaking) power in the hands of its audience.


    Fans can either send their ideas to or submit them in person at merch tables at a show during their fall jaunt across the U.S. The lucky winner will win a free house show and maybe some more “cool shit”. The deadline, according to the band, is October 1st-ish, so get those brilliant ideas in ASAP.

    The complete list of confirmed tour dates are down below. We’ll be sure to announce the winning name when it goes down. One last thing, we suggest Starlover; very wholesome.
