The Bombpops
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 genre'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 – along the way forging new definitions of "acceptable personal hygiene", pushing the limits of what might be considered a "bathroom" and cultivating a devout fan base that stretches from coast to coast.

Sharing stages with such revered acts as Bad Religion, NOFX, No Use For a Name, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Good Riddance, Pulley, GBH, TSOL, Teenage Bottlerocket, None More Black, 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 – serving up an energetic, acerbic musical attack that is equal parts sugar, spice and hydrofluoric acid.
The Couch Bombs
The Couch Bombs emerged after the ending of the ska band, Hatrick Penry. The bassist/guitarist Ian Rosenstein was looking to begin a new project during June of 2013 when he met up with his longtime friend Paul Fatur. They had been in previous bands together and Ian knew he needed a bass player. Ian called up Jake Johnson, former band mate of Hatrick Penry to play bass. Drummer Mason Kolodziej joined the band in late February 2014 and gives the band its music an aggressive and dynamic quality. The sound of The Couch Bombs is driving, energized and authentic punk rock.

The music brings a new perspective and originality to the deifying genre of punk.
