The Backstabbers formed in the Central Valley of California in 2009 when Jessie Farnsworth (guitar/vox) and Kevin Thomason (bass/vox) happened upon each other via a local musicians ad. Jes and Kevin both shared a passion for the great Powerpop, Punk, and Rock N Roll bands of the late 70' s and early 80' s. After adding drummer Wade Krause ( aka Wade- 0- Tornado) shortly thereafter the band was complete and ready to roll. With never a shortage of inspiration The Backstabbers are constantly writing and performing. Not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves the band always throws in a cover or two of their favorite songs and never perform the same set twice, making each performance unique with an explosion of great rock n roll licks and catchy hooks. Having shared the bill with such legendary acts as The Supersuckers, CJ Ramone, The Hangmen, The Vibrators, Peter Case, Rhino Bucket, and Nashville Pussy, these seasoned musicians never fail to please with their high energy live shows. The Backstabbers debut release entitled FULL BLAST! hit the streets on April 24th, 2012. The CD includes 7 original tracks all recorded at the legendary House of Faith Studios in Oakland, CA. More good things are to follow in the near future!...LOOK OUT!!!"
