The Expendables

West Coast Reggae-punk outfit, The Expendables, hailing from Santa Cruz, CA, USA, have been playing their upbeat, rocking anthems since 2000, headlining venues across the country.

Consisting of four friends, Geoff Weers (guitar/vocals), Adam Patterson (drums/vocals), Raul Bianchi (lead guitar) and Ryan DeMars, The Expendables put a twist on California surf rock, through their heavy reggae influence and punk aesthetic. They began releasing their music independently, with “No Tie To Worry” (2000), “Open Container” (2001) and “Gettin’ Filthy” (2004) selling over 40,000 units without any physical distribution or record label support. This success shows the wild popularity of The Expendables’ music.

Having performed alongside band Slightly Stoopid, they were signed to front men Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty’s new independent label, joining the roster of Stoopid Records. They soon released their self-titled album in 2007, which became hugely popular amongst fans and critics alike.

Following the album release, the band embarked on several tours, joining the likes of NOFX, Less Than Jake and Pennywise on the road. They also supported 311 on their arena tour, playing to huge crowds and gaining many new fans.

After two years of relentless touring, they returned to the studio to record their fifth album, “Prove It,” featuring the production talents of Paul Leary (Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Supersuckers). The album was released in May 2010, debuting at number 158 on the Billboard 200, moving to number 15 in the iTunes Top 200 album chart. The band again went on the road following its release before returning to the studio in 2012 to record their acoustic album, “Gone Soft.”
