I think I’ll always have a place in my heart for 3OH!3. What other band out there has thousands upon thousands of people throwing up their hands and repping my home state’s area code? These boys make me proud to be a Colorado native. I remember “back in the day” when they were relatively unknown and I put “Holler Til You Pass Out” on my myspace page and took a good amount of criticism for it. Now that these guys can be heard on the radio, the same people that criticized my questionable profile song taste are now the ones asking me if I’ve heard “that new band that sings the “˜Don’t Trust Me’ song.”
3OH!3’s first album, 3OH!3 wasn’t considered a commercial success when it was released in 2007″¦but, by all means, if you haven’t heard it, check it out ““ it’s worth a listen. Their album, Want was released by Photo Finish Records in 2008 and reached #44 on the Billboard 200.
I’ve seen these boys play local shows, Warped Tour and the AP Tour and they’re yet to disappoint. Sean and Nathaniel are wildly entertaining and really know how to amp up the crowd. If you’re heading to any of the Warped 2009 dates, definitely put 3OH!3 on your list of bands to watch.
I’m going to attempt to snag some downtime with my fellow Coloradans at Warped — keep your eyes peeled for an interview soon!
In the meantime, check out their newest video, “Starstrukk” over on their myspace.
