The Soft Bombs are a four piece that connects the genres of yesterday to an
inspiring and original sound of today. From the soon to be indie dance classics, to
the jangly psych pop, to a full on stoner/riff rock assault, The Soft Bombs are a live
show, managing to flawlessly create something so new and innovative that you are
sure to come back for more.
Described as an original mix of 60's psychedelic, 70's stoner rock and 90's Brit
Pop/Shoegaze, The Soft Bombs formed a little over a year ago when, Michael
Padilla, guitar and lead vocals, wrote and recorded some songs that were planned
for a solo album. He then met bass wizard John Lee Simpson, and together they
developed a beat-driven psychedelic rock sound.
After the release of the self titled debut album in spring of 2010, the band toured
from the west coast to NYC playing to enthusiastic audiences. In March 2011, the
band discovered a solid drummer in Ben Bodine who would become The Soft Bombs
official drummer. Using pre-recorded keyboards for their sound since the
beginning, the band kept its eye out for a keyboardist. In August of 2011 the band
honed in on keyboardist R H Brodie to complete the band as it is today.
Currently The Soft Bombs are working on their second album at The Soundport
Recording Studio in California and are gigging the west coast in support of their
debut album as well as their forthcoming release.
