Having been in constant creative demand for over 17 straight, pop punk uber-band Bowling For Soup clearly have no problem kicking out fresh songs, ridiculous videos and album after album of music that sets the bar for their genre.
At the core the main band is still Jaret Reddick, Erik Chandler, Gary Wiseman, Chris Burney and three generations of loyal ravenous fans. Bowling For Soup released ‘Fishin’ for Woos’ their first label free record in years, on April 25th 2011. The album is a classic Bowling For Soup record, the sound and energy led by marquis tracks “S-S-S Saturday”, “Girls In America” and “I’ve Never Done Anything Like This” featuring Kay Hanley of Letters of Cleo pleased the fans.
‘Guard My Heart’ is another track which also appeared on this LP. Written by bassist Erik Chandler for a film ‘Sardines’, the rough demo leaked to fans online in 1997 and went on to become a monster favourite around the world. Being able to release this record simply because they want to, sums up in a nutshell where Bowling For Soup is right now. “The freedom is amazing,” says Reddick. “If we want to release a new record every 6 months, we can. If we want to make a Christmas album, or remix album, or sing in a Disney project, we can. We don’t need to get anyone’s permission.”
Bowling For Soup are currently working on the follow up to ‘Fishin’ For Woos’.
