Bad Suns is an Indie-rock band hailing from Southern California, USA, melding 80s post-punk with Elvis Costello's melodic sensibilities to create their angst-ridden, hook-heavy indie rock.
Bad Suns formed in 2012, featuring the members Christo Bowman (vocals), Miles Morris (drums/percussion), Gavin Bennett (bassist) and Ray Libby (guitar). The bad quickly honed their craft, writing songs that were rather accomplished considering the short space of time in which the band had been together, as well as the young age of the musicians.
Having signed to the Vagrant label, Bad Suns released their debut EP, "Transpose" in early 2014. The release captured a youthful angst, through their grinding riffs, with sensitive yet strong vocals reminiscent of Robert Smith. They also harnessed the energy of The Clash and other early punk bands into their music.
"Transpose" was followed by their debut full-length album, "Language & Perspective," later that year, an eleven track album that is full of memorable hooks and stadium-sized anthems. The album was produced by Eric Palmquist, who has worked previously on records for artists including The Mars Volta, Wavves and Trash Talk.
The band's first single, "Cardiac Arrest" made significant waves on the American music scene, receiving significant radio airplay. The band also performed the song on the Conan show, as well as becoming a popular track on Alt Radio. This airplay and television performance helped raise the profile of the band and find new audiences across the country. They also secured a high profile support slot with The 1975 on their nationwide tour of the US.
