The hardest-working, hottest young rock band in Southern California - ACIDIC - is at it again! They just ended their best year ever with a sold-out show at the Dickens Opera House in Longmont, CO, on New Year’s Eve with Denver-based friends Novus Folium. Their mushrooming list of achievements and steady upward momentum have earned them a place on Music Review's "12 Bands To Watch In 2012." Already, the boys are gearing up for a vigorous year loaded with great new tours!
Last fall, ACIDIC unleashed their highly anticipated new album, Chronic Satisfaction to wild response! Produced by multi-platinum award-winning producer John Ryan (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, etc) of Chicago Kid Productions, the album boasts the popular single, "Uninspired." ACIDIC most recently toured with major rockers Alien Ant Farm as well as Warner Drive, in support of the new CD.
ACIDIC first burst onto the scene with the release of their 2010 epic, Getting Lucky -- a record that was produced by the award-winning Australian Wizardz Of Oz team of Andrew Bojanic & Liz Hooper (Jason Mraz, Liz Phair, Avril Lavigne), and helped land the boys on the Hot AC radio charts with their ballad “Maybe.” It was off the steam of “Maybe” that the boys scored opening slots on tours with heavy hitters such as Hawthorne Heights, Filter, Marcy Playground, and The Higher. They’ve also toured Kosovo and Germany to play for the troops with Armed Forces Entertainment.
In addition to the tours, the band has also played such prestigious festival gigs as SXSW, the Sunset Strip Music Festival, and Bamboozle Left (main-stage!). They won the coveted First-Place Award in the Alternative category in the 18th Billboard WorldWide Song Contest for their song “Strata Red” (also off of Getting Lucky).
ACIDIC, which Alternative Press said “Rocks like Funeral Party, Cage the Elephant, Young the Giant,” consists of lead singer/guitarist Michael Gossard, bassist Ted Dubrawski, guitarist/backup vocalist Michael Thompson, and drummer Matt Whitaker.
