Shaun White’s Band Signs With Warner Bros. Records

Shaun White’s Bad Things Sign To Warner Bros. Records, Announce Summer Tour

Professional snowboarder Shaun White is known for his board prowess, whether it be hitting the half pipe at the 2006 and 2010 Olympics, or tearing up the vert at the X games. Now he’s tacking on one more title to his lengthy job description: lead guitarist.

His band, Bad Things, has just signed with Warner Bros. Records and announced a summer tour starting in New York and finishing up in Minneapolis.

Here’s the full press release.

LA rock band Bad Things – that consists of front man/lead singer Davis LeDuke, bass player Jared Palomar, guitarist Anthony Sanudo, drummer Lena Zawaideh and lead guitarist Shaun White, the professional snowboarder and skateboarder – has signed to Warner Bros. Records and will be putting out their debut album later this year. Shaun, Lena and Anthony grew up in North County San Diego, CA and have been friends for years. Jared and Davis joined this past year, and together, the band has written a collection of songs for their debut, which is being produced by Rob Schnapf (Beck, Elliot Smith, The Vines).

The first offering from the album is a booming track called “Caught Inside,” which is now streaming on the band’s SoundCloud. Bad Things will be hitting the road next month, playing two shows in NYC – Popshop July 11th at Santos Party House and Brooklyn Bowl on July 13th – followed by a Northeast and Midwest headlining run.
