Bad Case of Big Mouth is a five-piece easycore band from New Jersey, they released their debut full-length Straight Up Bad Luck in 2014. Inspired by bands like Four Year Strong, A Day To Remember, Blink-182, and New Found Glory the band incorporates a heavy sound while maintaining a pop-punk vibe.
"We had all been in different bands around New Jersey," Tyler told us, "Tony, James, and a coule former members recruited John and I to co-front the band. We later found Justin when we posted on Facebook that we needed a bassist. We liked him so much that we bumped him up to guitar."
The band has a strong presence on social media, most notably their Facebook group Bad Case of Big Mouth's Taco Squad. "We've made this group for the sole purpose of interacting with everyone who is team BCoBM!" the description reads. "We wanted to develop a way to keep in touch with you all on more of a personal level while giving you all a place to meet new friends, discuss music, fall in love, and eat pizza/tacos." The group currently has over 9,000 members and is a great place to get lost in conversation with other fans. "It's not all just about BCoBM," Tyler told us, "We have friendly discussions, talk about our daily lives, and help promote of local bands and shows While the Taco Squad is silly and has a lighthearted theme, we've found out that it's created new friendships among our listeners and has given a lot of people something to a part of."
Not too long ago John had hinted at new BCoBM music in the group and we have confirmed that a new EP is on the way. "We are releasing a five-song EP later this year," we were told. "It's going to be titled 'Break It To Build It.' The name sort-of sums up what we've had to go through over the past year or so. We are building ourselves up and are hoping to shine brighter than ever before."
The band is slated to play EZ East Fest June 25th in Staten Island, NY with Abandoned By Bears, The Lost Boys, Until We Get Caught, and a handful of other bands. "We love Staten Island, so that has us pumped," Tyler told us. "We are friends with a lot of the bands playing so it will be awesome to see them again and hang after the show. For the bands we haven't seen yet we're [still] super excited to check them out and build relationships." You can get your tickets for EZ East Fest here.
However, before June rolls around BCoBM is slated to play the May 21st date of the Guardians of Easycore tour, and have a headlining show at Gamechanger World in Howell, NJ on June 4th. Keep an eye out for an East Coast tour in August!
