Bullets and Octane

Published in Blog, Culture Bully. Tags: .

Hailing from California is one of my latest guilty pleasures, Bullets and Octane. I found these guys on Shoutweb, a site I visited in high school to stay hip with the smooth sounds of nu-metal. Why should you care? Drummer Ty Smith played with Guttermouth, one of my favorite punk bands of the last few years and Helmet’s Page Hamilton produced their album In the Mouth of the Young. On top of that, Mike Ness was so impressed with the band’s live act that he extended their two weeks of opening for Social Distortion into six. Flogging Molly and The Eagles of Death Metal have also offered the opening spot, not bad…not bad.
