They celebrate with the release of a new EP, book and UK tour dates.
The Bouncing Souls are celebrating their 30th year as a band. In honour of the anniversary, the band has announced the release of Crucial Moments, a brand new six-song EP and accompanying book, out 15 March from Rise Records. The Bouncing Souls are sharing the title track and its music video, an anthemic ode to three decades of great music and great friendships.
Recorded by Will Yip, Crucial Moments captures the sound of a band who are still completely in love with what they do after all these years. The four-piece — vocalist Greg Attonito, guitarist Pete Steinkopf and bassist Bryan Kienlen, who started the band in 1989, and were joined by drummer George Rebelo in 2013 — aren’t ones to rest on their laurels, as Crucial Moments is a wholehearted, fully-realized addition to The Bouncing Soulscanon. The EP offers the winning familiarity of the band’s most defining traits bolstered by a long career’s worth of songwriting expertise.
If the Crucial Moments EP shows where The Bouncing Souls are now, the book is a look back at where they’ve been. The collection contains photos, memorabilia, and stories from friends and fans to trace the band’s incredible career and its impact on the people around them. As Attonio puts it, “We’ve made bonds with people around the world that you’d never imagine or dream of when you’re a 17 year old kid from New Jersey in the ’80s. I’m so grateful that I’ve been through that journey and for what I’ve learned, and what I’ve been able to get for my heart and to give, too. I don’t know how I can imagine my life being more gratifying than that.”
The Bouncing Souls will be spending their 30th anniversary with fans all around the world, having also just announced a massive run of US, UK, and EU tour dates throughout 2019
