Bob Burns and the Breakups

Bob Burns and the Breakups


Fans of lo-fi garage punk and the classic Ramones approach of "simple yet catchy" will dig this band. This Wisconsin trio proves that you don't have to break new ground to keep punk rock fun and entertaining. - ALTERNATIVE PRESS Dec. 2007


Breaking news! Bob Burns and the Breakups sign with Gearhead Records! The band recently released their 2nd full length record with Gearhead Records of Woodland, CA. The fittingly-named "Terminal Breakdown" CD/LP was released world-wide June 26th, 2007 and the band has just come off of their break-neck U.S. tour this past June. Gearhead Records established its presence as the leader in the rock n' roll/punk rock genre when they had a break-out hit with The Hives from Sweden in 2002, and shortly after, The Hellacopters, New Bomb Turks and The Wildhearts.

Prior to signing with Gearhead Records, Bob Burns and the Breakups released a pair of singles on the Dingus and Plastic Idol labels, and a full length CD/LP on P. Trash Records of Germany.

Bob Burns and the Breakups are based out of the sleepy college town of Stevens Point, WI and have played a countless number shows around the U.S. and Canada since coming together in 2003. The band has played such notable venues as Jillian's in Covington, KY; Top Cat's in Cincinnati, OH; The Hemlock in San Francisco, CA; the Rathskeller at UW-Madison, WI; and the House of Muses in Marquette, MI.

Bob Burns and the Breakups have shared the stage with the likes of:

The Leg Hounds
The Obsoletes
The Modern Machines
The Mystery Girls
The Tears

All current Bob Burns and the Breakups releases recieve regular airplay from college and independent radio stations across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Their tunes have been heard all the way from Jersey City's WFMU and Stoney Brook, NY's WUSB to KDVS in Davis, CA.
