In 2002 DIGITAL LEATHER were two young men playing keyboards: DL Mastermind SHAWN FOREE and RYAN WONG (Destruction Unit Tokyo Electron Reatards). Electronic karate chops and drill sergeant drum simulators created fuzzed out synth punk at warehouse punk shows to punk rock kids that hated keyboards and hated Digital Leather. They then had their faces melted. Several similar shows played a role directly or indirectly in shaping an underground music revolution. Flash forward several years-and Digital Leather has become a shape shifting force in the new it genre of synth punk. With a handful of sold out singles and LPs under his leather jock strap Shawn Foree is now preparing his magic wand for the masses.
