I'm sure many of you already know who the Pounders are since they've been leaving quite an impression throughout the Bay Area when they perform, but for those of you who haven't discovered them yet, it's about time you get DOWN TO POUND!
Imagine Billy Joe Armstrong (Green Day) with Travis Barker (Blink-182) laying the foundation of the music, mix in some heavy Les Claypool (Primus) influenced grooves of a self-proclaimed "Bass God," and you have the wonderful formula that makes up Pounders. This trio literally owns the stage with their electrifying stage antics, creating buzz each time they perform, leaving audiences longing for more.
With the release of their new album Chasing The Sun in Winter 2010, Pounders are eager to get their music out to the masses. In the upcoming weeks the band will be working with San Jose filmmaker Frank Door and his company Element 151 on a music video for the album's namesake single, as well as opening a new all-ages venue in Los Gatos to appease the younger audience and grow the local music scene.
Pounders have already had the honor of playing Vans Warped Tour in 2008, the "Bring It Back Tour" stage at Left Coast Live in 2009, the Morgan Hill Friday Night Music Series and Wine Festival, Santana Row Music Series, the Whiskey A Go-Go in LA, and various Hot Topic stores throughout California, plus they shared the stage with Mike Herrera of MxPx at their own CD Release show. With even bigger things are in the works, everyone will soon be DOWN TO POUND!
I encourage you all to check out Pounders at their next show, which will be announced soon! Also, check them out on MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter:
