40oz of Spite / Bio

Rob and Dirty Dave were in 7 Letter Alphabet together. They toured all over the USA and put out a couple records. 7LA broke up.. Dave went to jail, got out, and started The Beat-Ups. Line up changes haunted The Beat-Ups through out the whole run of the band. In 2006 Tommy Gun (from The Hubies) moved to Grand Rapids and ended up joining the Beat-Ups on bass and back vocals. In 2009 the band split up due to their drummer getting a teaching job in Africa. Fed up with constant line up changes they hung up the Beat-Ups and took some time off.

In March of 2010 Dave and Tommy decided they wanted to form something new where they would combine both of their vocal and writing styles together. Dave asked Rob (who was playing in Guns, Drugs, and Vibrators at the time) to hop in on drums. And that was it. 40oz of Spite was born. Taking all the elements of all their previous bands.. combining them together, and amping it up. Straight forward, no holds bar, high energy, in your face punk fucking rock.

July of 2010 they released the "Drink It Down EP" which consisted of their first 5 songs. They played steadily through out the year developing their songs and traveling around the state of Michigan.

April 21-30th of 2011 they embarked on a Midwest/East Coast tour with The Hex Bombs with the release of "You'll Never Make The Team. Cause You're Fat" a live EP recorded just for this tour.

They are now writing and recording for their debut full length album. And gearing up for another tour to support it. Catch them if they are in a town near you!
