Q-Rock 101 .... Class is now in session. Take your seats, STFU and Listen.
Today's band comes to us from the LoneStar state. Originally formed in Wichita Falls in 1994, the band relocated to Denton and is now based out of that D/FW Metroplex suberb.
The creation of lead singer and guitarist Jaret Reddick, the original band included lead guitarist Chris Burney, bassist Erik Chandler and drummer Lance Morril. Morril left the band on good terms in '98 and was quickly replaced by Gary Wisemen. The band remains in tact today.
This band actually released 3 albums prior to signing with a major label company in 2000. Their first major label release, on JIVE Records, was "Lets Do It For Johnny" in 2000. That album contained many of their previous recordings along with a cover of Bryan Adams' Summer of '69.
Their 2nd major release Drunk Enough to Dance hit the market in 2002. And although they were catagorized by many as a Rock Punk band, the album contained a track that garnered them a Grammy nomination in 2003 for Top Pop Perfomance by a Duo or Group with Vocals. After their 2002 release, they had film gigs such as taping the theme track for the anime TV show Knights of the Zodiac and a live performance as the graduation band in the movie Crossroads.
Several albums later and numerous appearances on the Billboard US & UK Hot 100 list, the band continues on. Most recently performing a military tour in Japan during 2011.
For some reason, the band has enjoyed more success in the UK than the US market. They continue to be good friends with fellow bands like SR71. In fact, one of their best known singles was written by SR71 and given to them to record as their own. Another tight friendship is with the band Army of Freshmen. You will find Army of Freshmen doing a cameo in one of their videos.
Soooo.... without further ado, sit back and enjoy your Saturday as I give you..........
BOWLING FOR SOUP.
