ALTERNATIVE MUSIC BANDS

Bad Ideas

February 26, 2015

Having grown up on a diet of Chicago based punk rock bands and then romanced by the rootsy, old school revival of folk and country vibes creeping into punk rock music, Bad Ideas has a sound that uniquely sits between the gaps of Punk, Indie and Folk. Their latest offering, ‘The Better Parts of You’ was released in November by German label, Uncle M and also in North America via Paper + Plastick receiving rave reviews from the likes of KERRANG, HITHEFLOOR and PUNKTASTIC. Having built up a bedrock of fans through both acoustic and full-band shows with the likes of A Wilhelm Scream, Into it Over it, Gnarwolves, Sundowner, PJ Bond, Rocky Votolato and The Flatliners, Bad Ideas have toured extensively both in the UK and in mainland Europe as well as releasing two albums in 2012 and 2013, ‘Murder of Gods’ and ‘Compromise’ via Shield Recordings, Fond of Life, No Reason and Bad Mood records.

Tipped by Gigwise as one of the top 12 new bands in Leeds and by Already Heard as one of 50 international artists to keep an eye on in 2015.
