Formed in 2007, The Bombpops quickly became a mainstay of the storied San Diego punk scene, channeling youthful aggression through a healthy reverence for the genreâ€™s progenitors and musical skill well beyond their years.
From salty dive bars to hallowed music halls, the band has toured the United States extensively â€“ along the way forging new definitions of â€œacceptable personal hygieneâ€, pushing the limits of what might be considered a â€œbathroomâ€ and cultivating a devout fan base that stretches from coast to coast.
Sharing stages with such revered acts as Descendents, Bad Religion, NOFX, No Use For a Name, Alkaline Trio, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Good Riddance, GBH,Teenage Bottlerocket, The Frustrators, and Strung Out, the Bombpops have been privileged to play alongside many of the bands that inspired them.
Having released two EPs to date, joined the Red Scare Industries family in 2010 and relocated to Los Angeles, the Bombpops continue to provide Southern California with their own brand of blistering pop punk â€“ serving up an energetic, acerbic musical attack that is equal parts sugar, spice and hydrofluoric acid.
