In the last decade, many things have changed, but there’s one thing that’s remained constant: The Scandals. The New Jersey punk band has been keeping the energy and emotions of dark and cramped basement shows alive, and have taken their own unique brand of anthemic punk rock across the United States and Europe. Relentless touring over the last couple of years has pushed their live show and songwriting to the next level, and it’s apparent on ‘Lucky Seven.’
About The Scandals:
The Scandals are a punk rock band from New Jersey.
We are four guys who spend more time in our van than our own beds.
We recorded our next EP “Trenchknife,” with Pete Steinkopf of The Bouncing Souls and released it in 2012. We also released an EP called “Riot on the Dancefloor: The Story of Randy Now and City Gardens” and a split 7” with New Mexico’s Stabbed in Back the same year.
In 2013 we were chosen to be a part of the Red Bull Sound Select program, which is a continuing partnership between the band and members of the Red Bull Music team. We have played numerous music festivals such as the Bamboozle festival in 2008/09, Punk Rock Bowling in Las Vegas in 2011, CMJ in New York City in 2012, SXSW in Austin in 2013, Myfest in Berlin in 2014, and the Skate and Surf festival in 2014/15.
In March of 2014 we embarked on our first European tour via City Rat Booking and Gunner Records to support our European exclusive release “Time Machines.”
In 2015 we released 2 split 7”s with Plow United and Jaguar Shark and hit the road with The Gaslight Anthem and Northcote, then headed back to Europe for more touring.
To sum it up, The Scandals are a touring band. We have a van, it’s registered, and we’re ready to roll. When the band is not on the road Jared is out with an acoustic guitar screaming his way through bars, living rooms, venues, parking lots and record stores because that’s where this music lives; on the road.
