In September of this year, the band recorded at Radiostar Studios in Weed, CA. This sophomore release was produced by Sylvia Massy Shivy (System of a Down, Tool, Johnny Cash, Sevendust) and Rich Veltrop (Rage Against the Machine, Slayer, Red Hot Chili Peppers, 311). The band has independently released its full-length debut, Outside the Van Door, which was recorded by Grammy-nominated Tim Stroh at his acclaimed Stepbridge Studios in Santa Fe, NM.
"Hit by a Bus' debut reveals an impressive blend of hardcore rock and borderline techno beats, punk and metal guitar figures, and a whole host of juicy pop elements taht, taken as a whole, offer multiple moments of sheer delight. The record's harder side is expertly performed, while the more ambient material is equally as effective in its subtleties." --Michael Henningsen, The Alibi, V.13 No.37, September 9-September 15, 2004.
Hit by a Bus has shared the stage with the likes of April Sixth, KJ52, The Romantics, Barefoot Bride, Breaking Benjamin, Greyscale, and then some. They have performed for crowds of 500+. They've planned and executed their own DIY tour around the southwest and with plan on taking the rest of the nation by storm.
Hit by a Bus plans to embellish their music with further discoveries, to attempt to satisfy their curiosity by experiencing the world around them, and to continue to express what they see, feel, react to, and reach for with bleeding fingers, strained voices, and open hearts.
