Another wonderful offspring of sheer boredom
and a burning desire to play music, BUM CITY
SAINTS spent their infant year practicing and song
writing in living rooms and backyards before playing
their first show in November of 2008 at Burnt
Ramen with local heroes ESKAPO and LA PLEBE.
Since then, BUM CITY SAINTS have continued to
spread their fast-paced punk rock throughout the
Bay Area, playing over 100 SHOWS alongside bands
like M.D.C, KRUM BUMS, T.S.O.L, CITIZEN FISH, LEFT
ALONE, MONSTER SQUAD, THE RESTARTS, SWINGIN’
UTTERS, and MORNING GLORY.
In the spring of 2010 the band released their first
album entitled Destruction, containing eight tracks
of furious punk rock (sung both in Spanish & English!).
The release of their debut album was followed
by a period of intense show playing, not to mention
an insane impromptu show in Oakland with STAR
of BUM CITY SAINTS on a record, we’re gonna
help them to give it the best effort possible. In early
2011 the band returned to Earhammer Studios to
record their second album, a CD, released on March
31st (with a kickoff at the notorious 924 Gilman
Their third full-length was just released on March
29th, 2013 at San Francisco’s Sub/Mission with GetDead (Fat Wreck Chords). That also marked BUM
CITY SAINTS’ 100th live show. That CD and this 7”
will no doubt cast BUM CITY SAINTS’ net much
wider, helping share this loved Bay Area stronghold
with the rest of the world.
