Bowling For Soup Go Indie For New Album
After being signed to Jive Records for the past decade, Bowling For Soup have amicably parted ways with the label to record their 11th studio album independently and unrestrained.
Recorded at Valve Studio in the band's hometown of Dallas, TX, in late 2010, Fishin' For Woos is the classic Bowling for Soup sound and energy that fans have come to love, led by tracks "S-S-S-Saturday", "Girls In America", "I've Never Done Anything Like This" featuring Kay Hanley of Letters to Cleo, and "Turbulence" featuring Gabriel Mann, who is 1/4 of The Rescues and composes the music for mega hit TV show Modern Family.
Also making its full-production debut is "Guard My Heart," which will make legions of fans very, very happy. Written by bassist Erik Chandler for a film called Sardines, the rough demo was leaked to fans online in 1997 and became a monster favorite around the world. Being able to include "Guard My Heart" on the record simply because they want to is the nutshell of where Bowling for Soup is at right now. "The freedom is amazing," says frontman Jaret Reddick. "If we want to release a new record every 6 months, we can. If we want to make a Christmas album, or remix album, or sing in a Disney project, we can. We don't need to get anyone's permission."
