About:

A punk rock rock band originally from Long Beach, California, The Vandals members' individual projects sometimes overshadow their band. Bassist Joe Escalante and guitarist Warren Fitzgerald run Kung Fu Records, drummer Josh Freeze is an incredibly in–demand session drummer and vocalist Dave Quackenbush runs an alcohol distributor.

Despite their success in other projects, the band periodically regroups to write new material and perform live.

The band recently was the source of some controversy after their decision to perform in Iraq.
