Coming out of a city full of life and music, Detroit's punk scene has emerged with a breath of fresh air with bands playing shows and releasing new records. Bad Assets has been a staple of Working-Class blue collar Detroit Punk over the last 6 years. The lineup started with John on bass, Matt on guitar, Ali playing drums with Ralph on vocals. After Ali left the band, Jason stepped in and released our full length album "Spirit of Detroit" in 2012. As time pushed on we were playing lots of shows and writing for the next album, Jason ran into Knee problems forcing the band to scale back activity in mid-2013. With Jason having Knee surgery, the band instead used what new material we had and released some as a split Ep with Best Idea Ever and split the remaining tracks on the comps "Voices of America vol 3", "It's What we Know", "Bars and Battle Scars vol 1" and "Scarves Up" with 1592. After a second knee surgery, the band looked to new options for the drums and came up with a win-win lineup change with Jason moving to Rhythm Guitar and Andy Stomper behind the kit. With a new drummer (sorta), we have been writing like crazy over the past year and plan on recording our next full length this winter for a spring 2015 release.
