Bump is the NEW Detroit sound. Pollution, crime rates, and economic despair aren’t the only effects of growing up in the outskirts of the Motor City. Within the grey solitude there is beauty, hope and a budding bouquet of creativity and invigorating new music. Bump is the NEW Detroit sound. Bump combines the hard-hitting essentials of the world-famous Detroit electronic music scene with the soulful influence of one of the most famous musical generations of all time, the Motown Sound, to create their own brand of electronic science fiction rock.
While many would be self-conscious or discomfited with wearing the badge “New Detroit Band,” Bump wears it proudly, preaching their gritty roots through their unique brand of intelligent art rock. Not only has the band embraced their hometown, Detroit has reciprocated, coming out in masses in support of Detroit’s largest underground act. Thanksgiving Eve 2006 saw the band sell out the Majestic Theatre. Over 1,300 fans danced, grooved and helped bring in the holiday season.
With an unrelenting touring schedule and over 600 shows played, Bump continues to turn heads throughout the country. Their reach is extensive and continues to grow as they’ve had the pleasure of sharing their music in 35 states. Bump receives critical acclaim from such national publications as Relix, Hittin’ the Note, and Glide Magazine. The band is currently distributed through Home Grown Music Network, and appears on Home Grown 7.
