LA rock band Bad Things – that consists of front man/lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White, well known for snowboarding and skateboarding – will release their debut, self-titled album October 8th on Warner Bros. Records. The record was produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, The Vines).
The first taste from the album is lead single “Anybody,” which is now streaming onYouTube and Soundcloud and will be up at iTunes, along with the album pre-order on August 13th. To get a taste of what Bad Things are all about live, check out this video from Lollapalooza of the band covering Iggy and the Stooges’ “Search And Destroy.”
Bad Things are riding high off a weekend filled with breakout festival performances. They played a surprise set at Lollapalooza Saturday afternoon with festival-founder, Perry Farrell. Then, that evening, they were asked to take the Death Grips headlining spot on The Grove Stage. Two sets in one day, not a bad way to celebrate your first Lollapaloooza as a band. On Sunday, Bad Things went off in Montreal at Osheaga Festival. Canadian media outlet Dose.ca awarded Bad Things with the #1 Most Surprising Moment of the festival, raving about their performance. “Google ‘Bad Things’ and you’ll be inundated with articles that start with the words ‘Shaun White’s band…,’ which is totally misleading, considering how much more there is to these guys” says Dose. “They have great original material and the kind of solid musicianship and stage presence you’d expect from a group that’s been playing together for years.”
Bad Things play a couple more Midwestern dates before their current tour of the US comes to a close. They’ll hit the road again this fall around album release, so stay tuned for more information.
