|Formed in 1985 in the San
Fernando Valley, Badtown Boys have never strayed from their punk rock roots. From their
first single on Dionysus Records to their self-titled debut album on Gift Of Life Records,
which also brought "Date With Death" and Pennyless In Paradise" and their
1994 release "ep.i.dem.ic", the band has proven it's staying power and have
lived up to their "cult Punk legend" status. The guys are also working on a live
CD made up from numerous shows dating back to 1991-1995.
With five European tours thoughout Germany, Holland, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, England, Wales, Scotland and Yugoslavia, Badtown Boys have played with the likes of D.O.A., Dog Eat Dog, Satanic Surfers, Spermbirds and Yellow Car, just to name a few. And with a fist full of US tours with All and the Dickies the band has built up a loyal and devoted following. Just witness one of their live shows and you'll know why.
Badtown Boys have had the opportunity to have their albums produced by some of punk rock's best engineers such as Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion, NOFX, Dag Nasty, Rancid), Pat Coughlin (R.K.L., No Use For A Name), and for their new release, the ever wicked Micheal Rozon (Beck, Dead Lazlo's Place, Shattered Faith). Badtown Boys have also appeared on numerous compilation albums, including The Ramones tribute "Gabba Gabba Hey" released on Triple X Records.
The Badtown Boys have just been signed to New Red Archives and their new CD "Another Fine Day" was released on May 1st 1999. "Another Fine Day" is loaded with hard driving, full throttle Punk Rock mixed in with the bands classic chainsaw pop sound that Badtown Boys fans worldwide have come to love. Badtown Boys will be back on tour soon, we hope that everyone can make it to the show....once again.
