If you were to count the number of bands who have lasted 30 years and consistently put out quality material over that period, you likely wouldn’t need both hands to do so. The Bouncing Souls thankfully fall into this category of a DIY-punk band that have made a memorable legacy for themselves over their 30-year career. Crucial Moments is an EP that stands on its merit of an accomplishment as much as it is a summary of what The Bouncing Souls have done over their eventful career. Accompanied by the 96-page coffee table book of the same name, The Bouncing Souls take some time to reflect on their legacy while still showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
The Bouncing Souls have announced some December tour dates.
Lifetime’s Ari Katz has teamed up with Brian Baker (Minor Threat, Bad Religion, Dag Nasty), The Bouncing Souls’ members Brian Kienlen and Pete Steinkopf, and Danny Windas to form the new band Beach Rats. They’ve set up an Instagram page where they’re documenting a recording session.
