Bowling For Soup
Bowling For Soup
If anyone had told Jaret, Erik, Chris or Gary that their little band, Bowling for Soup… The one formed over two decades ago to simply pass the time in small town Texas, would not only still be here, but will have accomplished feats usually reserved for those who take their musical endeavors more “seriously,” the laughter would have drowned out the eruption of a reasonably sized volcano.

With worldwide record sales in the hundreds of thousands; a few hit singles charted; a Grammy nomination to their credit and an international touring history most bands can only fantasize about, one can only wonder how the North Texas area quartet turned “beer is delicious” and the notion that farts are always funny into a longstanding career. BFS’s de factor leader, Jaret Reddick reminisces, “We never set out to be U2. We knew making a living at this was some time away, but two years in, after rehearsing 6-7 times per week, we knew we had something special.” Fast forward 22 years and Bowling For Soup have just released their 17th album, Drunk Dynasty.
Runaway Kids
Runaway Kids
When you think of punk rock from the 80’s and 90’s, the bands were not only playing their instruments fast and aggressively, there was also a message that built a rugged community that united and fought against the social ills that faced them every day – politicians, naysayers, absentee family members. It was so much more than what came out of the P.A. system. It was all about the people.
Just as those bands from the past inspired their listeners to fight for a brighter tomorrow, Los Angeles very own Runaway Kids look to imbue that same sense of urgency within their listeners. Formed in the Summer of 2014, the band immediately went to work writing and recording their debut EP ‘Better Days’, which they recorded with producer Cameron Webb (Pennywise, Alkaline Trio, Sum 41). The band received a very large co-sign in Pennywise’s Randy Bradbury, who lent his expertise by tracking bass on the entire EP.
Jake Denning, writer for http://absolutepunk.net, had this to say about the EP: “With their debut EP, Runaway Kids have established themselves as a band to look out for in 2015. It’s reckless and wild, reminding listeners why they fell in love with alternative music in the first place.” Look for Runaway Kids in your city, as they plan on relentlessly touring the United States and beyond, playing the very distinct brand of punk rock that made them the people they are today.
