Los Angeles rock & roll outfit Badflower brought grit and swagger inspired by the Sunset Strip when they made their debut in 2013. The group initially got together in 2008 under another moniker, later changing bassists and band name. The re-formed lineup — vocalist/guitarist Josh Cole Katz, guitarist Joseph Paul Morrow, drummer Anthony Sonetti, and bassist Alex Espiritu — released the Temper EP in 2015 on Hundred Handed Records. The blistering set included the arena-ready single “Animal” in addition to four other raw tracks that condensed the sounds of contemporaries like Royal Blood and Aeges with the fury of early Silverchair.
