BLACK PRESIDENT SET TO HIT THE ROAD WITH BOUNCING SOULS
DRUMMER DAVE RAUN JOINS BAND AS FULLTIME PLAYER
DEBUT CD OUT NOW ON COBRA MUSIC
“BLACK PRESIDENT is a band founded on the belief that the human race is angry, greedy, simple & ugly. We believe in educating ourselves, treating the world & people around us with the same respect we would take from it. We are not “politically correct”, we’re just not ignorant”. Black President self-titled debut out now on Cobra Music.
After filling in as guest drummer on dates with TSOL Dave Raun will be joining the band full time replacing drummer Roy Mayorga. “Dave is a badass… We stayed at his house when our van broke down in Fresno on the Warped Tour and it just clicked. He came in, killed it on the TSOL tour, and has brought a whole new energy to the band. Roy is an old friend and amazing drummer who will definitely be missed. We wish him all the best and there are no hard feelings. Losing Roy for Dave is a quality problem that we can’t really complain about! We can’t wait to hit the road again in April.” States Christian Martucci
Fresh off a successful tour with T.S.O.L. Los Angeles based Black President show no sign of slowing down as they continue on the road for a trek of southern dates with Left Alone leading into east coast dates with Bouncing Souls.
“We’re excited to be going out with bands we have a great deal of respect for and looking forward to finally playing the south and east coast”
