Bio<iframe title="YouTube video player" class="youtube-player" type="text/html" width="640" height="390" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/cg_ZXlHsxhM" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen></iframe> Eric Eyl (Denver Post) calls Bad's sound, "a slightly left field,blend of classically-influences emo histrionics. and says Aaron Long is nothing if not exuberant. His manic communication style is matched only by his maniacal stage presence. Jef Otte (The Westword) refers to Bad as "a glorious, confusing mess," amd says, "it all adds up to a wink and nod... or maybe it doesn't." Stephan Hume (Colorado Music Buzz), calls Bad, a very motivated and confident young band in Denver (but says nothing about the quality of their music)... Go on their Itunes account, look them up on youtube, look at their face book, or myspace profiles, or their press reviews. You'll start to see the pattern. The reviews are 1 out of 10, or 10 out of 10, but Bad rarely gets a 6 or a 7. They're easy to like, easy to hate, and very very difficult to overlook. Formed in December of 2009, Bad hit the door running with their new innovative Dark Rock Opera sound, accomplishing in a very short amount of time what it takes many local bands years and years to do! Through the course of their first year as a band, they powered through many many trials and tribulations. From losing two original members, to getting robbed a show, to feeling like the adult world of success was going to hate their guts forever, Bad quickly established themselves as the local sick degenerates with a dream... The rock and roll revolutionaries looking to prove a point and set their youth on fire, and they will... Bad is Aaron: Lead Vocals, and Guitar. Aaron is a tormented spirit with a chip on his shoulder, and crooked grin on his face! Bad is LaRissa Vienna: Bass and Female Vocals. A raw emotional ball of fire... Quiet and mysterious, but compelling beautiful. Bad is Seth Leach: Drums. A sucker for danger. Formerly very popular for his viral stunts, Seth will do anything for the rush. In early November, LaRissa and Aaron both made it onto the first round of American Idol as a duet. They're hopes where high but they where sent home after the first television round, being told that they where not good enough for the competition individually. Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson suggested that they start a band. They responded, " we already did". Their experience with Idol (due to air on national television in January of 2011) has taught the members of Bad one thing. This is their place, their purpose and their passion. And they intend to live their life for that purpose. Bad's second of many self titled albums hits internet stores worldwide February 23rd. They're here, hotter than ever, prepare to get burned! -Aaron
