About Bad Ideas

'The Better Parts of You' EP out now: http://ow.ly/PAOw4 Borrowing their name from the lyrics of an old Alkaline Trio song, BAD IDEAS is a British punk rock group that owes as much to the youthful swagger of 90’s Brit-pop groups and guitar led indie bands as it does trans-atlantic punk rock. With driven guitars, a solid rhythm section and anthemic, accessible hooks, the band have earned a reputation as an explosive live act allowing them to tour all across the UK, Germany, Holland, Belgium and Italy. Sharing stages with the likes of The Flatliners, Into It Over It, Tellison, Beach Slang, A Wilhelm Scream and Joyce Manor, as well as being invited to play festivals such as Groezrock, Deadpunk, Hevy and 2000 Trees. After the success of their first two albums, Murder of Gods (2012) and Compromise (2013) Lincoln based band BAD IDEAS sought the help of producer Jamie Lockhart (The Cribs, Pulled Apart By Horses) to record ‘The Better Parts of You’ an EP which would mark a change in direction for a project which had up until this point been driven by frontman Sam Cook’s acoustic guitar. Recorded entirely in analogue and mostly live, the EP would earn the band comparisons to the likes of Manchester Orchestra, Brand New and interestingly more indie orientated bands like Blur, Radiohead and even the Gin Blossoms. The EP also attracted the attention of Less Than Jake drummer, Vinnie Fiorello who subsequently released the EP on this American label, Paper + Plastick records. With Paper + Plastick behind them and with the help of German label Uncle M, the EP saw the band appear in various respected publications such as Kerrang, Hit The Floor, New Noise and Punktastic as well as receiving air and video play on the BBC, Fuse TV and MTV Germany. Bad Ideas are currently working on their follow up third full-length album. www.badideasmusic.co.uk www.badideas.bandcamp.com Management: Ryan@zealousprojects.com
