Bump Incredible Consequence and Tour
Beechwood Records :: May 2nd, 2006

For two years, Metro Detroit's Bump has toured regionally in lieu of a full length album, and using their tightly knit four piece rock show as collateral. In 2005, as one of JamBase.com's "Bands to See," Bump managed to do a couple national tours, play a couple major festivals, and share the stage with some of the bands they idled growing up.

This spring Bump takes the necessary step forward by releasing their debut album Incredible Consequence on the Detroit indie label, Beechwood Records. Having been teetering on their own fine line between electronic indie-pop with obvious "jamband" influences in their live show, Bump decided to not replicate the live show on the album instead focusing on the songs. By trimming the fat and approaching the album is if they never performed these tracks live was the only way this project came to fruition.  Incredible Consequence is layered with neo new-wave hooks focusing on electronic loops and beats behind live instrumentation in a pop atmosphere. On the other hand, this 70 minute effort also has a couple tracks that throws ordinary genre categorizations out the window. Even though those close to the project have called it "Synchronicity meets Amorica meets Talkie Walkie," Bump feels like they produced a 21st century Motown disc.

Furthermore, this album proves that Yorg, Eric Novak, Clint Carpenter and Chris Sterr have collectively forged a dynamic neo-synth hook-driven brand of intelligent art rock. While still being a struggling "DIY" band, Bump have had a couple years of hardships with serious injuries, felony robberies and almost breaking up. All the struggles and demands of living the life of a full time touring musician create inconceivable effects and consequences. This album, is Bump's Incredible Consequence of choosing that path.

Bump will start touring in support of the album on March 23rd in Louisville and will continue on through the end of May.  Major highlights include a two night run with Green Lemon in Ft. Collins and Denver; supporting Brothers Past in Montana, and doing a run of shows with West Indian Girl in the Midwest (including their first DVD filmed concert at the Majestic Theatre). Even though the album won't be officially available online/stores until May 2nd, Bump has a limited run of discs available at all up coming live shows. The first two tracks of the album are available on the March/April issue of Relix and a couple tracks are available for stream on Bump's MySpace site.

Dang! These boys have been rockin my socks off for a while. Seriously, the crazy live jams with their tripped out electronic sound is a must see. I am so happy they are getting the recognition they've worked so hard for (and through so many trials and tribulations!) I'd love to see them at some festivals this summer...
