U.s. Bombs Biography

An American punk-revival band which draws on classic early British punk for its inspiration, the U.S. Bombs formed with a lineup of vocalist Duane Peters, guitarists Chuck Briggs and Kerry Martinez, bassist Wade Walston, and drummer Chip Hanna. The group signed with Alive and debuted in 1996 with a self-titled EP and the album Garibaldi Guard, which was followed the next year by Never Mind the Opened Minds. A leap to the Epitaph subsidiary Hellcat later in 1997 produced the album War Birth; 1999 saw a three-song EP recorded for TKO entitled Hobroken Dreams, as well as the full-length The World for Hellcat and Alive's Put Strength in the Final Blow. Chuck Briggs departed the group and was replaced by former Youth Brigade member Johnny Wickersham. The new millennium showcased a much fresher U.S. Bombs as well as the release of the band's fifth studio effort, Back at the Laundromat, in early 2001. ~ Steve Huey, All Music Guide
