Santa Cruz, CA-based reggae-rock-punk band THE EXPENDABLES—who kicked off 2015 with the January 13 release of their sixth full-length studio album SAND IN THE SKY (Stoopid Records) and are currently in the midst of their annual “Winter Blackout Tour”—will be making a special stop in TEMPE this SATURDAY, MARCH 14 at the POT OF GOLD MUSIC FESTIVAL at TEMPE BEACH PARK.

SAND IN THE SKY—mixed by Butthole Surfer guitarist and legendary producer Paul Leary (Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, U2, Weezer) and co-produced by THE EXPENDABLES and Gordon Brislawn (who was a co-producer on their Getting’ Filthy album)--features the new song “Starry Night,” available as a free download via http://sandinthesky.com and marks the follow up to their 2010 full-length album Prove It (Stoopid Records), which debuted at #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and #30 on the Independent Chart, and 2012’s acoustic album Gone Soft.

The band’s fun-loving, comedic spirit is paired perfectly against the infectious, buoyant rhythm of another new track “Music Move Me” in the official music video for the song.

About The Expendables:

Since forming in Santa Cruz, CA in 1997, The Expendables have staked their claim in the California inspired surf/rock genre with a sound all their own that blends reggae, punk rock, metal and 80s-style dueling guitar solos. During the first seven years of their career, the band of four longtime friends released three full-length albums (2000’s No Time To Worry, 2001’s Open Container and 2004’s Gettin’ Filthy) completely independent, selling a combined total of over 40,000 units with no physical distribution or record label. In 2007, the quartet signed with Stoopid Records--a new independent label formed by Slightly Stoopid--as the label’s first non-Stoopid release, after touring alongside the band and catching the attention of founders and front men Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty. Their first release on the label, the self-titled The Expendables, became an instant classic by fans and received critical praise. Following their support run on 311’s Summer Unity amphitheatre tour, The Expendables went straight to the studio to record 2010’s Prove It, which was produced by Butthole Surfer guitarist Paul Leary (Meat Puppets, Sublime) and NOFX’s El Hefe and features guest appearances by long-time friend G. Love plus various members of Slightly Stoopid. In 2012, the band changed things up and released an all-acoustic album called Gone Soft. Now, they are ready to get fans rocking with their new full-length studio album Sand In the Sky (January 13, 2015). In addition to their own annual Winter Blackout Tour, many other headlining tours and a summer on the Vans Warped Tour, The Expendables have shared the stage with artists such as NOFX, Less Than Jake, Slightly Stoopid, Pennywise, Pepper, 311, Steel Pulse and The Madd Caddies, among many others.
