The Bowery Presents: Bad Suns w/ Coasts Friday February 20 Vinyl 8pm Doors // SOLD OUT Tix: Twitter: @thebadsuns @coastsband @MaudlinStranger Bad Suns - Southern California rock band Bad Suns formed in 2012 and in the short time since inception, have managed to be musically beyond their years. Made up of Christo Bowman (vocals), Gavin Bennett (bass), Miles Morris (drums) and Ray Libby (guitar) the four piece ranges from ages 19-22 yet has a sound reminiscent of rock stalwarts from generations past. “I grew up with a lot of world music playing in the house. When I was 10, I started getting heavily interested in the guitar, and my dad began introducing me to his records from the 70's and the 80's. Initially Elvis Costello, then to The Clash, The Cure, and so on,” notes Christo. “All of these artists and bands had a big impact on me, at a young age, as far as song composition goes. “ The band’s debut EP (January 2014) Transpose was recorded in the studio with producer Eric Palmquist (The Mars Volta, Wavves, Trash Talk) and served as a prelude to the band’s debut full-length (also produced by Palmquist) which hit streets on June 24, 2014. “The writing and recording process is always exciting, because it's constantly changing and unique to each song. Inspiration comes and goes as it pleases, so a night when a song gets written is a very good night,” says Christo. Comprised of eleven tracks, Language & Perspective flows effortlessly from start to finish showcasing the band’s stadium ready anthems and undeniably catchy hooks. “Music has the ability to evoke certain feelings in people, a way that not much else can. The pairing of words and sounds can be an extremely powerful tool, when done right. I think the ultimate goal for this band is to make music that causes people to really feel something.” 2014 proved to be quite busy for Bad Suns, who in a very short time have performed the first single, ‘Cardiac Arrest,’ on Conan and the track hit #13 on Alt Radio Charts, and #11 on AAA charts. They’ve toured with likes of The 1975, Fitz and the Tantrums, Vaccines and Geographer to name a few. “It’s pretty incredible what you can accomplish with time, work, and patience. Playing our songs to receptive audiences, across the country, has been surreal for us; it’s what we’ve always dreamed of. We’re excited for people to hear the album that we’ve made, and then come experience it in a live setting,” says Bowman. “One day I just decided to be a musician, and I never strayed away from that goal. Being in a band is the only thing I could do.” Coasts - Conceived in 2011 in the crypt of a church, the Bristol-born 5 piece have resolutely resisted the overtures of the major record companies and embarked on a unique and independent path. Non stop touring has built a quickly growing group of fans across the country with KOKO in London already booked for their next London show in September - before they have received any mainstream media support. Citing Foals and Arctic Monkeys as their current favourite bands, COASTS' anthem Oceans has now had over 2 million+ plays on Soundcloud and their next step is world domination - their way! Catch them at a small venue while you still can...
