After playing its set, Bad Rabbits descended en masse upon the Boston Calling media camp. They answered questions ranging from their origins to their plans, usually mixing myth with fact. What I did learn is that frenetic front man Dua is sitting on a stash of heavy metal lyrics and melodies; improvements over the hardcore fare he pedaled as a teen in Weymouth ("We were a bad 25 ta Life.")
When told that it was actually metallers Scott Lee and Acacia Strain who turned me on to the Bad Rabbits deep groove and funk, Dua bellowed a deep, metally "Yessss."
Dude's got pipes. I'm waiting for the Bad Rabbits/Acacia Strain co-bill and joint project. Until then enjoy the vibes from Bad Rabbits' new album "American Love" and catch em on late night TV playing the Craig Ferguson show on May 31.
