LA rock band Bad Things, consisting of front man/lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar (formerly of Augustana), guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White (professional snowboarder/ skateboarder) released their debut, self-titled album January 21st on Warner Bros. Records. The record was produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, The Vines). The lead single “Anybody,” has been described by Rolling Stone as a “chugging rock anthem heavy with choirboy backing harmonies”.
Bad Things completed a North American tour of the country last fall that included festival stops at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Osheaga Festival in Montreal, and Voodoo Music and Art Experience in New Orleans, which earned the band much deserved acclaim. Canadian media outlet Dose.ca even awarded Bad Things with the #1 Most Surprising Moment of the Osheaga festival, raving about their performance.
Right on the heels of Bad Things’ release, NBC is set to air “Shaun White: Russia Calling” on January 25th. The special gives an inside look at how the gold-medal-winning snowboarder prepped for the Winter Olympics in Sochi next month in addition to juggling his other commitments, including Bad Things.
