Spotlight: ‘Bad Rabbits’

As rare as flawless gems, booty with brains and defrosting filet mignon, it is not often that a band breaks out with a powerful sound deserving of an entirely new genre. That is exactly the case, however, with Boston five-piece collective BAD RABBITS and their debut offering, Stick Up Kids EP, where funk-charged bass hold hands with electric falsetto while gripped in a bear hug of energy not heard since early 1980s salad days of hardcore punk. Dubbed “New Crack Swing,” the wonderfully addictive and truly original Stick Up Kids EP find the BAD RABBITS band cohesively bringing R&B, rock & roll, soul and funk together for an epic house party soundtrack that jams from start to end, without parents, cops or empty keg cups in sight.

Their debut EP is being released by clothing/streetwear powerhouse Karmaloop.com. Karmaloop reaches over 4.5 million unique visitors a month, has an email list of close to 1 million opt. in subscribers, KarmaloopTV.com, and an international evangelist Rep team of over 30,000 strong. Karmaloop’s reach is now totally at Bad Rabbits’ disposal. BAD RABBITS will be hitting clubs, venues and colleges nationally throughout 2010, beginning with their first ever tour supporting Warner Bros off-the-wall band, Foxy Shazam. These dates will also include multiple SXSW showcases in Austin, Texas. Dates for all can be found below.
