Erik Chandler; current bassist of punk rock pioneers Bowling For Soup and full-time dream chaser. During the stripped back, humble BFS acoustic tours, Chandler threw his hat into the ring and often opened these shows with his own solo material from which spawned his first release, a 4-track EP, ‘Writing The Wrongs’. Four years later, and Chandler has recruited a band and penned his debut solo album, ‘The Truth’.

Spring is finally here, and with it comes the sun. Brighter days call for brighter music, and what music is brighter than that of the colourful genre of pop-punk? Now, there are some big names in pop-punk, not to mention a fuck tonne of smaller acts too, but without a shadow of a doubt, Patent Pending are one of the greatest underdog bands of the genre. Over the last 12 years, they’ve been hard at work, making a name for themselves and now they’re finally here, in the UK, for their own headline tour.

First on the bill is Erik Chandler (****), the bassist of Bowling For Soup. For those of you not in the know, Erik has been working on a solo project and has recently released an EP, ‘Writing The Wrongs’. His songs are a breather from the pop-punk/rock vibe and follow a more country rock sound. His raspy cigarette-soaked voice provides the perfect tone to his reflective and sombre melodies, and he plays an excellent cover of The Lemonheads‘Rudderless’. An excellent start to an already flourishing career.

Oh Bowling For Soup, the soundtrack to my teenage years, with each song acting as a trigger for some nostalgic memory to come flow back to me. But, as I grew older, I started listening to other things, as does anyone really. Although, I didn’t outgrow BFS, I just listened to them less and less. It seems they have a similar attitude too, with bassist Erik Chandler and lead singer Jaret Reddick both yearning to try new things by each starting their own side-projects.

Almost 17 years on from their inception, pop-punk funny guys Bowling For Soup are still going as strong as ever with studio album number 11, ‘Fishin’ For Woos’, dropping in just a couple of weeks. Returning to the UK as a duo as opposed to the original quartet, Jaret Reddick and Erik Chandler go for an intimate and stripped down acoustic tour, during which they make a stop at Stoke, for their first ever gig in the West Midlands city.
