The Bombpops

Get To Know:

San Diego punk rockers The Bombpops quickly became a household name and staple in the punk rock, skate punk, and Fat Wreck world almost from their start in 2007. With big guitars, driving drums, and catchy but melodic tunes, the quartet has found a formula they love and they do it well. After a few EPs, the band eventually caught the ears of the crew at Fat Wreck Chords which fit them like a glove. Since then, they have toured the world many times over with bands like NOFX, the Descendants, Bad Religion, and many more. Now on their second full-length album, the band just wrapped shows and festival dates with NOFX, Anti-Flag, and more.

Kid Kapichi

Get To Know:

Hailing from Hastings with all the tongue in cheek are the four lads of Kid Kapichi (pronounced Kapee-Chee). Not only with big hooks but also big personalities the band got a big break from Frank Carter as he invited them to play his birthday party, which led to an invitation to hit the road on a major tour. All of the band’s songs come with a molotov cocktail of self-expression with emotional ranges from social injustices, and mental health to impassioned love and honest humor. Now with a proper deal and praise from Liam Gallagher, the band is on a destructive course to success.
