About:

The Bouncing Souls have been proud of our entire journey; good and bad, lost and found, hardcore and mid-tempo. We climbed mountains, short stretches at a time, starting out by pressing our own 7"s on Chunksaah, moving into the BYO Records house for our growing pains, and finally to Epitaph where the last three releases ('The Bouncing Souls', 1997, 'Hopeless Romantic', 1999, and 'How I Spent My Summer Vacation', 2001) find us growing popularity, legendary tours, and encouragement. What were once a series of basement shows became a steady stream of gigs with legends like 7 Seconds, The Descendants, and NOFX, heaping spoonfuls of Warped shows, and then pirate journeys with the likes of Flogging Molly and Alkaline Trio.
