The Bloody Muffs
Infest the Midwest!
July 25, 2011 NY, NY
Sometimes it’s not so much what you know but rather
who you know. No matter who or what you know their are 2 things it takes
to make a situation work in your favor- hard work and determination. Meet
NYC’s The Bloody Muffs. People in the NYC punk scene have called
them “the hardest working band in NYC!” In just 24 months
the band has gone from a fun local band to go have a drink and watch live
to a quickly rising band on the national level!
Starting with 2009’s debut CD Heavy Flow and 2010’s follow
up Sloppy Seconds, The Bloody Muffs have built a reputation for writing
hook laden, catchy punk songs. The live show grew from a loose fun time
to an all out party. In the fall of 2010 the band toured the USA for 3
weeks going from NYC to the Pacific Northwest and everywhere in between.
Shows in the Midwest were so well received the band went back to Ohio
and Indiana over the winter of 2011 making a serious impact in Youngstown
and Cleveland Ohio.
In the Spring of 2011 The Bloody Muffs embarked on their second major
tour through the Midwest for 2 weeks that built a strong fan base in several
markets across the region.
Midwest radio has picked up on The Bloody Muffs with regular rotation
on shows on FM radio in Youngstown Ohio, Milwaukee Wisconsin and Allentown
Pennsylvania. Internet radio stations such as Rukus Radio, PRP Radio and
FatCat Radio have played multiple songs on a regular basis. Podcasts from
as far away as Italy have brought them to a worldwide audience.
This summer the band has found their hometown of NYC embracing them. Due
to overwhelming demand they are embarking on 1 more trip into the Midwest
from August 18-22.
August 18th starts the tour in Cleveland OH with the bands debut at the
HIFI club and continues August 19th at Cleveland’s Spitfire Saloon
for the 4th time in 10 months.
On August 20th they raise the bar by doing two shows in two time zones
on the same day! First they return to The Funhouse in Schererville Indiana
(Central Time) where in June the band was so well received by the all
ages crowd that the venue and the band did everything it could to make
this show happen- even moving the start time up by 3 hours! Immediately
following their set they jump in the van and race to Indianapolis (Eastern
Time) to play Punk Rock Night at The Melody Inn. Why would they put themselves
through the chaos of two shows in different time zones only a few hours
The tour comes to an end on August 21 in Toledo OH at Woodchucks.
Their determination and all their hard work has now put them in a position
to rise to new heights! Demand is high for The Bloody Muffs right now.
The plan is to record their third CD over the Winter, but people all over
are trying to lure them back out on the road again before years end. It
won’t be long before The Bloody Muffs are on the road more often
