Evolution is a funny thing. Without evolution, life would be boring, bland and predictable. Good thing evolution is inevitable. This is no exception with Bad Acid Trip. Spawned in North Hollywood, California in 1990, Bad Acid Trip was birthed in the burgeoning West Coast Power- Violence scene. With each ensuing year, B.A.T. has continued to progress and evolve from its? roots in that movement into an ever developing, progressing animal. The past fifteen years has seen various members in Bad Acid Trip working together to forge a uniquely eccentric and distinctive musical path. Each individual passing through has left their own indelible imprint on the band's sound, style, and attitude. Currently, Bad Acid Trip is comprised of the vocal stylings of Dirk Rogers, the frenzied guitar attack of Keith Aazami, the pummeling rhythmic fury of Jose Perez, and the bass rumblings of Caleb Schneider. Original members Rogers and Aazami have been infecting minds together with their vision for over a decade now, while Perez and Schneider have solidified the lineup since 2004. Bad Acid Trip's current release titled Lynch the Weirdo (produced by Daron Malakian) is a riotously diverse spoonful of insanity that will punch you in the face and make no aoplogies. With their unique brand of madness, Bad Acid Trip has had some very unique touring opportunities, with eccentrically like- minded artists. Over the past two years Bad Acid Trip has treked countless cities of these United States many times over supporting System of a Down, the Mars Volta, Mindless Self Indulgence, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Dog Fashion Disco, Tub Ring, Motograter, Watch Them Die, and Gwar. Throughout the years, Bad Acid Trip earned the privilege to share the stage with other such venerable artists as Slayer, Arch Enemy, Cypress Hill, Hatebreed, Brujeria, Body Count, Buckethead, Tom Morello, Circle One, and Napalm Death. B.A.T. was rewarded for their hard work on the road with the featuring of their video for "Beef Moo" (from Lynch The Weirdo) on MTV 2's Headbangers Ball, as well as appearing as in-studio guests with host Jamey Jasta. These recent experiences have added to the evolution and growth of Bad Acid Trip, inspiring them to create new incarnations of their quirky, aggressive songs with intelligent lyrics that look to inspire their audience, old and new.
