There’s a place called The Sweetwater Tavern just off the main square in Denton, Texas. You’ve perhaps not been there, but if you’re familiar with Bowling For Soup, the larger than life Texan band who have delivered infectious power pop music to the world for over two decades, you’ll most certainly know the name. Why? Because rather than trying to break away from their hometown, BFS simply took their hometown with them and into the hearts of millions of people all over the world. It’s this lovable honesty that has served them well since forming back in 1994.
Everyone can relate to what BFS sing about, everyone can relate to the characters in the band – singer Jaret Reddick, guitarist Chris Burney, bassist Erik Chandler and drummer Gary Wiseman – we want to be their friends, heck, as far as they’re concerned, we ARE their friends!
Everybody LOVES Bowling For Soup – it’s plain to see!
2016 sees the release of the brand new, fan funded album, ‘DRUNK DYNASTY’, follow up to 2014’s Greatest Hits collection ‘Songs People Actually Liked – The First 10 Years’ and the first album of new material since 2013’s perhaps darker, reflective album ‘LUNCH.DRUNK.LOVE’. The new eleven track album is bursting at the seams with undeniable feel good, smile inducing pop rock goodness such as ‘Hey Diane’ and ‘Stop Doing That’ right through to epic, hands in the air anthems like the epic ‘Catalyst’. There are no boundaries for where they go next because they will always do it with honesty and a smile. That way, whatever the outcome, they can never fail.
