About Bowling For Soup
Website | Facebook | Instagram | Twitter | YouTube
With their thirty year anniversary as a band on the horizon in 2024, Texas’ favourite punk rock export Bowling For Soup continue to grow their global fanbase and expand their success year on year.Also dubbed the crown princes of pop punk, Bowling For Soup – frontman and guitarist Jaret Reddick, fellow guitarist Chris Burney, drummer Gary Wiseman and bassist Rob Felicetti have proved that nothing, not even a global pandemic, has slowed the demand for their unique, humour filled live shows and upbeat, heartfelt anthems.
Songs such as High School Never Ends, Punk Rock 101, 1985 and of course the Grammy nominated Girl All The Bad Guys Want resonate as much today as when they were written and are proving extremely popular in the modern streaming world. Their 2022 album, Pop Drunk Snot Bread,a play on the cultural reference “pop punk’s not dead”, was heralded by fans and critics alike as the band’s best release in fifteen years. Millions of streams and YouTube views for songs like Getting Old Sucks (But Everybody’s Doing It), I Wanna Be Brad Pitt and the global smash Alexa Bliss (dedicated to WWE’s own multi-time world wrestling women’s champion) show that Bowling For Soup can still run rings (and riffs) around their younger contemporaries. The album also features songs like The Best We Can, Wouldn’t Change A Thing and the positive mental health anthem Hello Anxiety, where Bowling For Soup show they can do both serious and reflective, with a BFS heart at the core.
It’s a testament to the bands’ enduring appeal and a fanbase that continues to grow day after day – evidenced by their100 million streams on Spotify in the year 2020 alone. Finding their niche back in the 1990’s would be tough when the musical climate was in serious shift.”We were just the stereotypical, small town guys with nothing else to do -starting a band to keep ourselves out of trouble” recalls frontman Jaret Reddick looking back. There was certainly no trend to follow, every other band seemed to be genre jumping to try and catch “the next big thing”without knowing what “the next big thing was”, leaving the members of Bowling For Soup with no option to just go out and have fun. Brought up on a heady diet of 80’s John Hughes Movies, LA Hair Metal, Steve Martin comedy routines (which spawned the band’s name) and hook laden punk rock, BFS hit the ground running on the simple blueprint – have a good time and pretty soon,everyone else will join in!
