Formed in 1988, the Bouncing Souls are a staple of the New Jersey punk scene. In fact, by the time the band had deservedly earned acknowledgement as a national act, they had already reignited the 'pogo' element in New Jersey, thanks to their staple of fast, light-hearted songs a pretty apt fact given that the group's name is a derivative of a Doctor Marten air-cushioned boots advertising slogan! After several self-released EPs and two albums, Bouncing Souls landed a label deal and put out 'Comet', the band`s ninth full-length album, in 2012.
