Primal and passionate, Badflower frontman Josh Katz transforms as he steps up to the microphone. The unmitigated kind of catharsis fueled by emotion and unfiltered intensity offers an awakening to the mind and body as audiences wholly experience the band’s palpable energy. This approach stands out as Badflower’s calling card as Josh [lead singer, guitarist], Joey Morrow [lead guitar, backing vocals], Alex Espiritu [bass] and Anthony Sonetti [drums] sync to captivate audiences. It is also a big reason why the group quietly became one of L.A.’s most buzzed-about Rock bands. Since their emergence in 2014, Badflower has shared stages with the likes of Cage the Elephant, Soundgarden and Ghost; earned acclaim from outlets such as Nylon, Alternative Press and Loudwire among others; and notched three No. 1s with “The Jester,” “Heroin” and “Ghost” off their critically acclaimed debut album OK, I’M SICK (Big Machine/John Varvatos Records). Wielding their signature energy, the music taps into a gritty and grunge-y gutter rock spirit complemented by jarring theatrical delivery and unshakable riffing. In September 2021 Badflower released their second album "This Is How The World Ends".
