No, Shaun White’s new band Bad Things is not fronted by the gold-medalist snowboarder and skateboarder, but he is the lead guitarist. The band, which consists lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh has signed to Warner Bros. Records and will be putting out their debut album later this year.
Shaun, Lena and Anthony grew up in North County San Diego, CA and have been friends for years. Jared and Davis joined this past year, and together, the band has written a collection of songs for their debut, which is being produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, The Vines).
The first offering from the album is a booming track called “Caught Inside,” which is now streaming on the band’s SoundCloud. Bad Things will be hitting the road next month, playing two shows in NYC – Popshop July 11th at Santos Party House and Brooklyn Bowl on July 13th – followed by a Northeast and Midwest headlining run.
