The Boom Bang emerges from the Oklahoma City suburbs with debut album “World War Fun”.

The Boom Bang is comprised of a group of young friends from suburban Oklahoma City that play loud, fun music. Creating a combination of garage, surf and punk music not unlike Ty Segall, Jeff The Brotherhood or Thee Oh Sees, the foursome of James Smith (Vocals), Tommy McKenzie (Guitar), Weston Lorance (Bass), and Charles Whetstone (Drums) has been playing together for two years.

In that time, the band has managed to work their way onto festival performances at South By Southwest, DFest, the Norman Music Festival, and the Neon Reverb Music Festival. With one national release under their belt through Guestroom Records, The Boom Bang’s debut full-length World War Fun is now scheduled for release on Norman, Oklahoma’s Nice People Records to be followed by a national tour in June and July of 2011.

The band was also recently named one of four bands poised for an “enormous 2011” by the Oklahoma Gazette.
