Tapout are a hardcore/metal/rock quartet – Bob (Bubbie) Stuff (vocals, lyrics), The Dogman (guitar, vox), Hollywood Hogan (drums, vox), Jimm too Grimm (bass, lyrics) – who hail from Thunder Bay, Ontario. Long story short the members are good people who don’t take themselves too seriously and make music because they LOVE to. We’re stoked to have teamed up with Tapout to offer this exclusive free download of their new song “At The Buffet.”
Normally we’d spend some time writing up more info about the band and new album, but this time around drummer Hollywood Hogan, did it for us. Here’s what he had to say: “The album was recorded at Dining Room Studios with Dave Angell who also engineered, mixed and mastered the album. All instruments were recorded in one weekend to maintain a punk rock urgency. The album continues along the lines of Tapout’s first outing, but ramps up the intensity with twisting and turning technical song structures, rock & roll swagger and a more aggressive edge than last time.
