While recording No One’s Safe, 2017 Blind Owl, Bad Vibes shouldered off with death, shuttered salvation and tripped on their own existentialism. The result? A searing eight song debut that burns like napalm in the echoes of a sixties resurgence. Theatrical, rebellious and ambitiously naked, Bad Vibes are a savage quartet, bastardizing psychedelia with the orphaned idealism of American punk and early British metal.
With two new releases slated for 2018, War Drugs and Prayer in April, and a follow-up full length in October, Bad Vibes are quickly earning a savage reputation for their prolific output and incendiary live performances – earning them the title of NBC Top 9 bands to see live in SD.
In Southern California there is a short list of artists changing the very definition of the California sound, in the midst of the pack are Bad Vibes, howling like a burnt Jack London novel at an exploding moon.
