Salad Boys Share single “No Taste Bomber”

Salad Boys share single "No Taste Bomber"

Christchurch, New Zealand band, Salad Boys’ debut album, Metalmania, is set for release on Sept. 18th via Chicago label, Trouble In Mind. With the summer single “Dream Date” being well received, the new single “No Taste Bomber,” should seal the deal.

The band will embark on their first ever US tour later this fall, as well, with stop-offs at Goner and MidPoint Music Fests, as well as a show at Third Man Records, where they’ll be recording a Third Man 7″!

The musical trio formed as many do, with members Joe Sampson (12-string guitar/vocals), Ben Odering (bass) & Jim Nothing (drums) mucking around in their spare time, fleshing out spare song ideas that Sampson had in his back pocket. The band’s name comes from a misheard line in the second verse of The Feelies song “Fa Cé La” – a joke name that they had assumed they’d change eventually, but never did.
