For nearly a decade now, Bumpin Uglies have been playing their brand
of groove-heavy jams – a curiously fun mix of ska, Reggae and good
ole’ punk rock – all while putting strong lyrics at the forefront of the
music. It’s a formula that quickly took them from local favorites,
playing around Annapolis, to a national stage. With a wildly infectious
sound, tattoo-worthy lyrics and an itch to take their music to the
masses, the band piled into the van years ago and have rarely seen
home since.
When they aren’t on the road, they’ve been camped in the studio,
churning out four full-length albums, two acoustic albums, three EP’s
and a Live record. Their latest, 2018’s Beast From The East came out
on Space Duck Records and is proof that the band has found their
groove. The album consists of a dozen stand-out tracks, any one of
which could be considered instant classics for the band. The album
also features some big names in the East Coast reggae-rock
community including Ballyhoo!’s Howi Spangler, the Movement’s Gary
Dread, Passafire’s Ted Bowne, Tropidelic’s Derek McBryde, Matthew
Roads & Young James, Zach Fowler of Sun Dried Vibes and Oogee
Wawa’s Jesse Lee. Buzz magazine raves “Beast From The East IS A
CAREFULLY CRAFTED PUNK-REGGAE GEM.”
The Bumpin Uglies’ origin story begins with singer/guitarist Brandon
Hardesty playing open mics around Maryland. He met bassist Dave
Wolf not too long after and Bumpin Uglies was born. With a proper set
of wheels and TJ Haslett on drums, they went off to spread their music
across the country like modern day Johnny Appleseeds. The group
recently added Chad Wright on keyboards, expanding on their sound.
Raised on everything from Bad Religion and The Beach Boys to
Sublime and Reel Big Fish, Bumpin Uglies have managed to take
inspiration from some of the best out there, run it through their own
distinctive filter and end up with a truly original take on the various
genres creating an original hybrid. With a unique sound that’s nearly
impossible to ignore, the band has gotten everyone from dreadlocked
kids to PBR-fueled tattooed punks moving their heads to their music at
festivals and on headlining tours across the country.
