Everyone knows that what the current music industry corrupted by greed and mediocrity needs is a swift sucker punch to the face. Tyler, hailing from the glaciers of Canada, Drew, straight out of the pits of Brazil, and Hans (from Wisconsin) came together and created one of the wonders of the world known as Bear Suit Sucker Punch. They quickly realized however, that this would be a difficult battle and decided it would be better to simply have fun playing some high-energy punk rock. Their sound is influenced by many different bands including NOFX, Rancid, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sublime, Elvis, and A Wilhelm Scream.
After playing all kinds of shows from house parties to local venues, and even being invited to headline a show at the local university, the trio decided to take their talent south on the “Sucker Punch Spring Break Tour,” playing shows across Georgia and Florida. They then released their first EP “Get Used to Disappointment” in June 2011 when the band was featured in Wisconsin's Steel Bridge Festival along with 100+ local and national acts. The fall of 2011 marks a new chapter in the band's life, as they have decided to move to Austin.
Bear Suit Sucker Punch has worked hard to promote with a DIY approach playing gigs around the Midwest from Minnesota to Arkansas, and are eager to get back out on the road. They have never forgotten the most important part about the band is to make good music, and have a good time doing it!
