About Bass Drum Of Death

Hailing from Oxford, Mississippi, the lo-fi duo Bass Drum of Death make bluesy garage rock. On record, the band is singer/guitarist/bassist/drummer John Barrett, who began recording his rambunctious D.I.Y. rock in 2007. Live, the band also features drummer Colin Sneed. Bass Drum of Death released the EP Stain Stick Skin on Fat Possum in 2008. The full-length debut album GB City, featuring the single "Young Pros," followed in 2011. Barrett moved to Innovative Leisure for the project's sophomore follow-up, 2013's Bass Drum of Death. Released in 2014, Rip This marked the studio debut of drummer Len Clark, but the following year saw Barrett announce that the group would be going on hiatus due to "personal issues." Bass Drum of Death returned in 2018 with Just Business, which was released via Century Media. ~ Matt Collar
