The Bouncing Souls - Punk That Lasts
Thursday, March 18, 2010

The two words people most associate with punk rock are youth and aggression. This is why longevity is a term that doesn't apply to most punk bands. The Bouncing Souls, however, are one of the few exceptions to that rule as they recently celebrated their 20th anniversary as purveyors of punk. It's a feat that's hard to accomplish in any genre of music, but especially one where what is relevant today can be past tense by tomorrow.

The quartet (singer Greg Attonito, guitarist Pete Steinkopf, bassist Bryan Kienlen and drummer Michael McDermott) started their journey two decades ago in New Jersey, and without the aid of mainstream radio or video airplay found a way to take over a segment of the music world.

Still incredibly active, The Bouncing Souls tour constantly and as a celebration of their 20th anniversary, released four 7'' EPs in 2009 and a 20th anniversary compilation CD in January of 2010. I caught up with lead singer Greg Attonito to find out more about celebrating 20 years as a band, which now includes touring with bands that grew up listening to them. Attonito also discussed where he'd like to see punk rock go musically, and why the genre has such a strong relationship with charitable organizations.
