The Billabong Pro Tahiti featured a dramatic finish as French surfer Jeremy Flores battled back from injury to top the roster and alternative rock group Bad Suns added an exciting backdrop to the event's highlights.
The Bad Suns, comprised of friends Christo Bowman, Gavin Bennett, Miles Morris and Ray Libby, was formed in 2012 and was quickly picked up by indie label Vagrant Records. Within two years the Los Angeles-based rock group released the album Language & Perspective under the guidance of producer Eric Palmquist (The Mars Volta, Wavves, Trash Talk). The album was a full length version of their debut EP Transpose and featured hits "Cardiac Arrest" and "We Move Like the Ocean".
"It's pretty incredible what you can accomplish with time, work, and patience," frontman Christo Bowman said. "Playing our songs to receptive audiences, across the country, has been surreal for us; it's what we've always dreamed of. We're excited for people to hear the album that we've made, and then come experience it in a live setting.
The Bad Suns are about to embark on a two month tour throughout North America. Check out the dates here.
