We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Bangups’ third album Candy Cigarettes (listen below), available on June 10th. Candy Cigarettes recorded/produced by legendary Steve Albini (Nirvana, Robert Plant, Jimmy Page) and mixed by Rob Schnapf (Beck, The Vines, Islands). Bangups music is infused with classic undertones of the 50s and 60s. The band is electrifying, rare and original.
Vocalist/guitarist Joey Dornbos comments: “This album bled us dry and broke our hearts. We gave more than we should have. Enjoy it, because you’re not going to get this much of us any time soon.”
Bangups are an American rock band from Grand Rapids, MI. Its members Joey Dornbos (vocals, guitar) and Brent French (background vocals, drums) met and started playing music together when they were 15 and 9 years old and in 2008 they formed the band. The duo has toured nationally including two stints on the Vans Warped Tour.
