Boyfrndz began in 2010, shortly after the collapse of We The Granada, a band in which guitarist/vocalist Scott Martin + bassist/vocalist Joseph Raines had cut their teeth. Martin’s roommate & sought-after drummer/vocalist Aaron Perez (at the time already playing in 3 other bands) signed on & Boyfrndz quickly became a priority. The lineup expanded to a 4-piece with guitarist Kelvin Baron for their self-titled full length debut in 2011. The group enlisted Grammy award winning keyboardist Ikey Owens (The Mars Volta, Jack White) to co-produce & he also played keys on a couple of tracks. Boyfrndz pared down to a 3-piece following a summer tour in 2011 & soon thereafter set about writing new songs resulting in the And So It Goes… 5-track EP in February 2012 and the band’s expansive new album, All Day Pass.
All Day Pass was recorded live in a whirlwind 3 days at the Shelter studio in Austin with few overdubs. The resulting album captures the trio’s ferocious energy & impressive precision. You can grab it now for FREE at Bandcamp.
The trio launch extended tour dates today (Ft. Worth, TX at Lola’s) on the heels of their just completed national trek. These shows are with El Ten Eleven through the Southwest & Midwest. Please see current dates below.
