Even Rude Biography
Over 2 million households are listening to Even Rude on Activision's top-selling Tony Hawks Pro Skater. The extreme skateboarding game features the band's hard-driving song 'Vilified' along with tracks by underground heavyweights like Dead Kennedys, Suicidal Tendencies, The Vandals, and Primus.
The band has been embraced by the extreme sports community, having played live at both the X-Games and the Gravity Games. Even Rude's songs have been featured on the Gravity Games Summer Two Thrills and Spills video, Board Wild on the Surf channel, Blue Torch on Fox Sports and the Extreme Freestyle Moto-X Challenge. TV, videos and the Internet are all bringing the band's grinding, crunching, grooved-based alternative rock called 'bump' to fans across the nation.
To date, almost 10,000 of those fans have purchased Even Rude's debut CD, Superabsorbent, released in March 1998. Superabsorbent charted on the CMJ College Radio Top 200 in 1998, and was distributed nationally. In 2000, Even Rude released their second, full-length CD, titled "Bump and Uglies." The band has been successful at selling CDs independently, but it's their blistering live shows and constant d.i.y. van-and-trailer touring that have developed a strong, ever-growing fan base in California, Arizona, Nevada, and Idaho.
The band was formed in1996 in Los Angeles, and has spent the last 4 years writing music, touring and recording. Their third CD is currently in production and is scheduled to be released this fall.
Along with King, who hails from Michigan, the band includes two Californians, guitarist Cake and bassist Dave 'D-Dubs' Wadsworth, who hooked up while Cake was producing tracks for Wadsworth's former band, Dimestore Hoods. King, 'fresh off the boat' from the Midwest, met his band mates in 1996 at a rehearsal studio in Los Angeles. Even Rude's drummer, Ric Roccapriore is a native of New England who joined the band almost immediately after arriving in L.A. in the fall of 1999.
