Bouncing Souls

The Bouncing Souls are celebrating their 30th year this year as a band and sounds like some cool things are happening, sooner rather than later. They will be releasing Crucial Moments EP and Book due out March 15th via Rise Records. In that book, you might even see a photo by me, we shall see! The EP will have 6 songs, along with the book and looking forward to hearing new music! Speaking of which, you can watch a new music video below. The band will also be playing all over the place this year, starting with my old stomping grounds in Jersey City at White Eagle Hall on March 16th. More dates are below as well.

The title track and music video is a bit of montage of three decades of music and friendships — proof that the band shows no signs of slowing down.

Recorded by Will Yip, Crucial Moments captures the sound of a band who are still completely in love with what they do after all these years. The four-piece — vocalist Greg Attonito, guitarist Pete Steinkopf and bassist Bryan Kienlen, who started the band in 1989, and were joined by drummer George Rebelo in 2013 — aren’t ones to rest on their laurels, as Crucial Moments is a wholehearted, fully-realized addition to The Bouncing Souls canon. The EP offers the winning familiarity of the band’s most defining traits bolstered by a long career’s worth of songwriting expertise.

If the Crucial Moments EP shows where The Bouncing Souls are now, the book is a look back at where they’ve been. The collection contains photos, memorabilia, and stories from friends and fans to trace the band’s incredible career and its impact on the people around them. As Attonio puts it, “We’ve made bonds with people around the world that you’d never imagine or dream of when you’re a 17 year old kid from New Jersey in the ’80s. I’m so grateful that I’ve been through that journey and for what I’ve learned, and what I’ve been able to get for my heart and to give, too. I don’t know how I can imagine my life being more gratifying than that.”

The Bouncing Souls will be spending their 30th anniversary with fans all around the world, having also just announced a massive run of US, UK, and EU tour dates throughout 2019. The shows will feature support from The Bronx, Strike Anywhere, Off With Their Heads, The Casualties, and more. See full itinerary below.
