Bad Things

Most people know Shaun White as an Olympic gold medalist snowboarder and record holder for the X-Games. His snowboarding and skateboarding skills put him on the map and even earned him the nickname, “The Flying Tomato”. However, this past summer Shaun White and his band, Bad Things, signed to Warner Bros. Records. White plays lead guitar for the group, which also includes bassist and former Augustana member, Jared Palomar. They released their self-titled debut album on January 21, 2014.

Bad Things has been categorized as a synthrock band. They caught a big break this past August at Lollapalooza. They were chosen to replace Death Grip’s set as one of the four headlining Saturday night slots. Members include Davis LeDuke, Jared Palomar, Anthony Sanudo, Lena Zawaideh and Shaun White. A unique synth sound and guitar riffs by The Flying Tomato makes Bad Things the Press Play band of the Week.
