ACIDIC

The hardest-working, hottest young rock band inSouthern California – ACIDIC – is at it again! They’re releasing their biggest, best, rockiest, rowdiest, and most critically- acclaimed album yet on March 19th!
The CD “Copper Man” is produced by multi-platinum award-winner John Ryan of Chicago Kid
Productions (Styx, Santana, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Badfinger, Allman Brothers). Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx kicked off February on his nationally-syndicated radio “Side Show” by naming “Copper Man” his “Sixx Pick of the Week”!

ACIDIC kicked off 2013 with a new distribution deal with SONY/RED through a
special arrangement with MegaForce Records. They’re now on the road on an ambitious
tour schedule coast-to-coast with Trapt, and the just-announced national tour with
Hinder, to support “Copper Man.”

ACIDIC led up to this point with a smash 2012 national tour schedule supporting
Candlebox and Fuel, plus their summer hometown triumph headlining a packed show at
the legendary Doug Weston’s Troubadour.

ACIDIC’s previous CD, “Chronic Satisfaction,” also produced by John Ryan,
was released in Autumn 2011 to wild and enthusiastic response! The first
single, “Uninspired,” got airplay on FM and internet rock stations across the U.S. and
Canada. “Chronic Satisfaction” helped inspire Music Reviews to name ACIDIC one
of its “12 Bands to Watch in 2012.” ALTERNATIVE PRESS magazine (Dec. 2011,
#281) says the new “Chronic Satisfaction” album “Rocks Like: Funeral Party, Cage
the Elephant, Young the Giant.”PURE GRAIN AUDIO compared “Uninspired” to
Nirvana’s “Lithium” – “in the way Gossard performs the vocals and in the angst you can
hear in his voice.”

ACIDIC has also toured with such heavy hitters as Alien Ant Farm, Hawthorne
Heights, Filter, and Marcy Playground, and performed in Kosovo and Germany, rocking
US troops with Armed Forces Entertainment. ACIDIC has been featured at such
prestigious gigs as the 2012 Winter NAMM Show at the Anaheim Convention Center;
SXSW ’10, ‘11, and ’12; Florida Music Festival ’12; two Sunset Strip Music Festivals;
and Bamboozle Left. ACIDIC won the Alternative category in the 18th Billboard
WorldWide Song Contest in 2011 for their power rocker “Strata Red.”

ACIDIC consists of lead singer/guitarist Michael Gossard, bassist Ted Dubrawski,
and drummer Matt Whitaker. The band tours and records as a four-piece with guest
guitarists.
