Primal and passionate, Badflower frontman Josh Katz transforms as he steps up to the microphone. The unmitigated kind of catharsis fueled by emotion and unfiltered intensity offers an awakening to the mind and body as audiences wholly experience the band’s palpable energy. This approach stands out as Badflower’s calling card as Josh [lead singer, guitarist], Joey Morrow [lead guitar, backing vocals], Alex Espiritu [bass] and Anthony Sonetti [drums] sync to captivate audiences. It is also a big reason why the group quietly became one of L.A.’s most buzzed-about Rock bands. Since their emergence in 2014, Bladflower has shared stages with the likes of KONGOS and The Veronicas; earned acclaim from outlets such as OC Weekly and Loudwire; plus achieved a two-week run at No. 1 on KROQ’s Locals Only Show with “Heroin.”
Wielding their signature energy, the music taps into a gritty and grunge-y gutter rock spirit complemented by jarring theatrical delivery and unshakable riffing. Following their TEMPER EP release Badflower became the first signing on a new joint venture with Big Machine Label Group President/CEO Scott Borchetta and fashion icon John Varvatos called Big Machine/John Varvatos Records. The crushing realness of Badflower’s latest single, “Ghost” brought the band to the attention of iHeartRadio who have spotlighted them as an On The Verge Artist while also climbing towards a top ten debut at rock radio.
