HB Surround Sound Bio/Background:
Hailing from Huntington Beach, CA. HB Surround Sound was established in the summer of 1999. Fresh out of high school, HBSS burst onto the local Orange County punk scene with their unique blend of rude-boy/reggae/punk. With a super tight live show HBSS quickly became the face of Reggae/Rock in Orange County. Over the next 7 years the band released three albums and were featured on various compilations such as: Sense Boardwear Vol. 1 & 2, One Big Family (Japan), Hen House records, Urban Outfitters and many more. After the independent release of their first two albums (Self-titled 2000 and Kill all the Critics 2002), the boys teamed up with producer Michael Miguel Happoldt (Sublime, Long Beach Dub All Stars) for their 3rd Album Mad World in 2006.
Shortly after the release of Mad World the band mysteriously disappeared. Then, out of nowhere in 2011, nearly half a decade later, HBSS was spotted in Long Beach, CA playing to a sold out crowd of Crazed OC music heads. With years of music under there belt that helped to inspire such local heroes as The Dirty Heads and Avenged Sevenfold, HB Surround Sound is back with all new music and a renewed drive to be better than Aerosmith.
