Bobaflex is gearing up for a return to Idaho this fall with a pair of dates. The band will hit the 3rd Wheel Event Center and Concert Hall in Lewiston on Saturday, September 23, followed by a show at Diamondz Events Center in Jerome on Sunday, September 24. Tickets for the Lewiston show can be purchased here, and the Jerome date may be purchased here. Direct support for both shows comes from Birmingham, Alabama’s Southern rockers, Beitthemeans. The date at Diamondz will also feature our Australian brothers in October Rage, and Boise’s own Vault7.
Originating in Mason, West Virginia, Bobaflex released its 8th studio album Eloquent Demons on Friday, August 25th, 2017. The album’s first radio single was a cover of Pink Floyd’s Hey You, and the second single Long Time Comin’ impacted radio on August 1st.
Eloquent Demons is the follow up to 2015’s Anything That Moves. This is the second album to feature Dave Tipple and Jymmy Tolland and the first album to be released on Thermal Entertainment LLC.
The band was originally signed by Eclipse Records to release their first full length album Primitive Epic. the band went on to TvT Records where they released two albums in Apologize for Nothing (2005) and Tales From Dirt Town (2007). label went bankrupt in 2009.
The band decided to go the independent route and started their own label, BFX Records in 2010 in order to control their own destiny. They released an EP in 2010 called Chemical Valley. With the exception of a re-recorded version of 2007’s “Home,” all the songs on the EP would become part of their full release in 2011 Hell In My Heart which featured 16 songs and their top selling single to date “Bury Me With My Guns On” and their very popular cover of “Sound Of Silence” (Simon-Garfunkel). Hell In My Heart was followed in 2013 with Charlatan’s Web which included the single “I’m Glad You’re Dead” their most successful song at radio in their history.
Bobaflex’s tireless ethos has also carried into their live shows and touring schedule. Having played all lower 48 states over the last 7 years, they have played 100+ shows every year including a record setting 154 in 2016. This constant schedule has crafted the band into one of the tightest and real live Rock n’ Roll bands in the country.
