Big Bad Buffalo drummer Jordan Krimston (Pandemonium, Lua) was still in high school when his band released its debut self-titled three-song EP in 2012. He also attended the local branch of the School of Rock. The group includes Alex Staninger and Silvio Damone.
The group earned regular airplay on FM94/9’s local radio show, as well as opening for national acts like Joan of Arc, Into It Over It, TWIABP, A Great Big Pile of Leaves, New Politics, 21 Pilots, and Caravels.
Their album American, released in April 2014, was recorded at Stereo Disguise Recording Laboratories by Brad Lee (Album Leaf, Mr Tube and the Flying Objects) and mastered at Singing Serpent Studios by Rafter Santos-Roberts. “This project has been a year in the making,” said Krimston. The teen rockers supported the release with a short west coast tour that kicked off July 6 at the Che Cafe and ended back in San Diego at the Casbah on July 14.
