The Bouncing Souls

The Bouncing Souls started out in 1987 with the intention of playing loud fast three-chord party music around their native New Jersey; besides, it gave them something to do while they were in high school. Upon graduation and after years of struggling to find a label to release their records, friends Greg Attonito (vocals), Pete Steinkopf (guitar), Bryan Kienlen (bass), and Shal Khichi (drums) got some money together and -- in true D.I.Y. fashion -- formed Chunksaah Records in 1993. Upon the formation of their own label, two EPs were to follow, entitled Argyle and Neurotic, before they released their first full-length, The Good, the Bad & the Argyle, in 1994.

Considerable touring and partying were to follow before the band struck a deal with BYO Records in 1995. Not only did they re-release their debut album along with their follow-up, Maniacal Laughter, but they were also starting to make a name for themselves by opening for NOFX, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, 7 Seconds, and the Descendents, among other big names. Their style of singalong, hard-hitting, and passionate pop-punk caught the ears of Epitaph Records in 1997. In that same year, their self-titled third album was released, which not only called attention to the Bouncing Souls around the world, but also enabled them to leave their full-time jobs for a while. The live EP Tie One On held fans over in 1998 before their fourth album, Hopeless Romantic, was released in 1999.

Khichi left the band in 2000, and ex-Murphy's Law/Skinnerbox drummer Michael McDermott replaced him soon after behind the kit. How I Spent My Summer Vacation appeared in spring 2001. Two years later, the band assembled its most honest material to date for the release of Anchors Aweigh. That same year, the band also put together and released the double-disc Do You Remember? 15 Years of the Bouncing Souls, which comprehensively documented the guys from their humble D.I.Y. roots through to the early 2000s. Another DVD, a live one, came out in September 2005 on Kung Fu, and a live two-disc album followed two months later on Chunksaah. The Bouncing Souls' next proper studio effort, The Gold Record, appeared in June 2006; in celebration, the Souls played a string of six soldout shows at N.Y.C.'s The Knitting Factory leading up to its release. The band then spent the entire summer on Warped's main stage. The Souls spent 2009 releasing a series digital and vinyl singles dubbed the "20th Anniversary Series," the songs from which would eventually become their 8th album, 2010's Ghosts on the Boardwalk, which was released through the band's own Chunksaah label. In 2012 the punk stalwarts signed on with Rise Records, who released their ninth album, Comet, later that year.

I am a HUGE fan of the Souls, so I'm gonna be just a little one sided. These guys sound f**kin amazing, no matter what they're going for.... Their SKA tunes are just the right mix of reggae n punk..... And the songs that follow typical punk lines, kill it...yes they do play PUNK, especially on older albums r smokin... Even songs that get picked up by mainstream radio, like "...Sheena", & the Pizza Song just goes to show their talents across multiple genre's... not just one sound, but ....aaaah

matthew.robb e n
@jason _bartley except for the fact that Greg was practically phoning in a weaksauce performance during that tour. They lost the energy they had 10 years ago.
