Although members of Orange County punk pop group the Lovely Bad Things had known one another since senior high school (or before, regarding siblings Brayden and Camron Ward), they only formed a band after they had currently graduated. Coming jointly in ’09 2009, the Wards, Tim Hatch, and Lauren Curtis turn off vocals and musical instruments while playing an easy, funny, and loose make of punky garage area pop inspired with the Pixies, the Wipers, and Redd Kross. The power taken to their concert events and the effectiveness of their songwriting brought these to the attention from the famous Burger Records staff, who released the band’s New Ghost/Aged Waves cassette in 2011. It had been reissued in 2012 by Volcom on Compact disc and LP. The same label combo released the band’s Jon Gilbert- (OFF!, the Soft Moon) created full-length, The Later Great Whatever, in early 2013.
