Produced and written by the band, this is the first full length project from Guys On a Bus. Love Brings Out the Worst In Us showcases the diverse sound and stylings of a very young and energetic alt rock quartet. The new music has been compared by audience members to a very wide variety of indie acts, from Hippo Campus and Vampire Weekend, to Relient K and Colony House. The four-part harmonies also tend to remind listeners of a vintage surfer rock style (and occasionally are compared to mo-town bands).
From the moment the opening track “Love Brings Out The Worst In Us” you get a sense that these boys from Joplin, MO are a indie rock/pop force to be reckoned with. Previously released single “Bella” is a indie pop anthem that any takes you from the distinctly lovely intro track into a world that feels brighter than the current state we are all dwelling in. The entire album shows a versatility you rarely see in such a young band. Take a spin, and don’t miss out on those harmonies on the closing track “I Wait”.
Meet Guys On a Bus. These guys are the Alt Rock band to hear from the Midwest (Joplin, MO). Their songs have been placed on over 100 indie and college radio stations in the past two years. Following their college radio hits, they landed three showcases at RedGorilla Fest at SXSW (Austin, TX) in March of 2017. The band was started by Davis Drake (bass), Evan Todd (drums) and Nathan Hurley (lead vocal and guitar) in 2014. The Guys completed the lineup eventually adding Nate’s younger brother to the group, Caleb Hurley. Since September of 2015, the guys have hit the music scene in a big way. From touring the United States almost non-stop, to landing adds on 120 different college radio stations in 2016, the Guys refuse to slow down. They have played to sold out crowds opening for Fatai, The Band CAMINO, The Wldlfe and Consumed By Fire. The guys continue with their ambitious tour plans aiming for 100+ shows a year. Guys On a Bus brings a party experience to the indie scene every time. Packaging tight four-part harmonies, reminiscent of the Beach Boys, with their simple pop/rock choruses, in the neighborhood of COIN, Guys On a Bus tap into a wide variety with their original music. Their primary fanbase is the college and high-school crowd, but they have developed fans and listeners spanning over four generations. They have drawn a diverse audience with the passion and drive displayed in their live show. The group’s unique blend of upbeat melodies and lyricism will turn casual listeners to fans by the end of any festival showcase or full set. By the end of the night audience members will find Guys On a Bus’ songs stuck in their heads. Keep up with the guys and be sure to come out for their next show.
