Another wonderful offspring of sheer boredom and a burning desire to play music - BUM CITY SAINTS spent its infant year practicing and song writing in living rooms and backyards before playing it's first show in November of 2008 at Burnt Ramen with local heros Eskapo and La Plebe. Since then, Bum City Saints has continued to spread its 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 its first album entitled “Destruction”, containing 8 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 FUCKING HIPSTERS.
While you arguably can't capture the live energy of BCS on a record, we're gonna help them keeping giving it the best effort possible. In early 2011 the band returned to Ear-hammer Studios to record their second album with a kickoff at the notorious 924 Gilman St.!
Their third full-length was released in March 2013 at San Francisco's Sub/Mission with Get Dead (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. A summer tour is in the works too - keep an eye out for tour dates!!
