Bad Suns Sign with Vagrant, Transpose EP Due Out Early 2014

We are proud to announce that Southern California rock band Bad Suns have signed Vagrant! Formed in 2012, Bad Suns is Christo Bowman (vocals), Gavin Bennett (bass), Miles Morris (drums) and Ray Libby (guitar).

The pairing of words and sounds can be an extremely powerful tool, when done right. I think the ultimate goal for this band is to make music that causes people to really feel something” says Christo.

Comprised of four tracks, Transpose flows effortlessly from start to finish showcasing the band’s stadium ready anthems and undeniably catchy hooks. “Cardiac Arrest” from the Transpose EP is available today at all digital retailers and streaming partners.
