“Two heads are better than one, and four heads should make some fun music.” That’s what frontman Curt had to say when asked about the future of a new breed of pop punk, an up-and-coming ensemble Curt Cannabis. The pop punk band is hitting the center stage, and with their lively tunes and catchy songs, this quad is leaving a mark in the music industry.
Comprising the band is an all-star combination of artists who have supported bands such as Z.Z. Top, Puddle of Mudd, Daughtry, Winger, Salia, Foghat, Pat Benatar, Head East, Quiet Riot, Seen Dust, Stone Sour, Powerman 5000, Switchfoot, and Tantric, to name a few. The vocalist and guitar for the band is founder Curt, and playing the guitars and producing music is Brian Dinger. At bass is the groove maker Brian Bundy. The band’s drummer is Matt Call, who played for the band Slur.
The origins of Curt Cannabis begin with Curt Yeoman, a veteran musician who first came into the scene as the solo act Ninestrum in 2016. Curt released a few demos for the first few years. Then in 2019, he enlisted the trio of legendary musicians to help him form what is now known as Curt Cannabis, a high-energy, upbeat pop punk band whose helping everyone all over America and Europe have a great time with their music.
One of Curt Cannabis’s first releases was a song called “Falling Sensation.” The song talks about a colorful yet tragic story of loss with a comic perspective. The narrative might be cynical, but the track promises to bring nothing but celebration into any atmosphere. “It’s about real life,” shares the frontman, Curt. “Sometimes life sucks. Sometimes it seems perfect. Learning to balance those two is the trick.” The song also has a music video, which has gathered over three thousand six hundred views on YouTube since its recent launch in March.
The single would later merge with their first EP album, Saved My Life, a record with seven hard-hitting beat-thumping tracks. The album includes songs like “Face,” “Pushing Paper Bridges,” “A Story (Saved My Life),” “My Own (Hand Held Messiah),” “So You Say,” and “Make Me Laugh.” Since its launch, Curt Cannabis hit over a thousand monthly listeners on the giant streaming platform Spotify.
Individually, each of the band’s members is exceptionally talented. But when joined together, their sounds bring a catchy sound through their electric performances. Curt Cannabis isn’t all about the fame and glory of music. They want to give people a great time. “We hope that people who hear our music will find a reason to smile for days, weeks, or even months when they remember our performance,” the band expresses. The band thrives on the concept of relationship, both with each other and with their audience.
Currently, Curt Cannabis creates music under Too Loud Records. They’re currently planning more music videos and a follow-up album, hoping to release very soon. The band also looks forward to playing live shows as soon as events resume.
