About Bowling For Soup
Bowling for Soup was formed in 1994 in Wichita Falls, TX, featuring lead Jaret Reddick, guitarist/vocalist Chris Burney, bassist Erik Chandler, and drummer Gary Wiseman. The group began to jell in 1997 when a heavy touring schedule helped broaden their fan base and landed them opening spots for nationally prominent punk and ska bands. The following year, they recorded a debut EP for the local FFROE label, titled Tell Me When to Whoa!"
In 1998, Bowling for Soup issued their first full-length album, Rock on Honorable Ones!!! For their 2000 major-label debut, Let's Do It for Johnny!, Bowling for Soup re-recorded some of the best songs from their indie records and added a few new tracks, including a cover of Bryan Adams' "Summer of '69." Two years later, the band released Drunk Enough to Dance and nabbed a Grammy nomination for the single "Girl All the Bad Guys Want." Hangover You Don't Deserve followed in 2004, and Bowling For Soup landed another hit single in "1985," which helped propel Hangover to number 37 on the Billboard 200.
