Pennywise and Pepper Head Up Jager Tour
Pennywise is one of the most significant bands to emerge from Southern California punk's second wave. The Pennywise current line-up, which has remained constant since 1996, consists of Jim Lindberg (vocals), Fletcher Dragge (guitar), Randy Bradbury (bass) and Byron McMackin (drums). Formed in 1988 in Hermosa Beach, California, Pennywise have released nine-full length studio albums, one live album, two extended plays and one DVD.
Pepper will rejoin the Jägermeister Music Tour once again to feature their fifth studio album Pink Crustaceans and Good Vibrations and to support their forthcoming live release, Kona Gold, due in April 2009.
"I grew up listening to Pennywise in Kona because they would always be featured on Taylor Steele surf videos," says Yesod Williams, drummer for Pepper. "It was our soundtrack we'd listen to while heading to the beach. Co-headlining this tour with them is a milestone, then you get Jägermeister involved and the party will never end!"
"After 15 years of paying for Jägermeister shots, it will be nice to finally get a couple on the house" said Fletcher Dragge, guitarist for Pennywise.
"Jägermeister is thrilled to be once again to be working with Pepper," said Bill Henderson, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Advertising for the Sidney Frank Importing Company. "Having both Pennywise and Pepper on the same bill is something we've been dreaming about for a long time."
The Tour will rock through the end of May and each show will be rounded out with a local Jägermeister sponsored band.
