Hailing from Livorno, on the west coast of Tuscany, the Biffers first became active in 2009, creating a classic punk rock sound inspired by the California scene of the late 1980's, but also drawing from influences of R&B and British indie rock. They came to the attention of Kung Fu Records when Vandals bassist and label owner Joe Escalante took notice of one of their infectious jams posted directly to the Kung Fu Records Facebook page!
Says Joe, "They posted an amazing song right on our page. They made it very easy for us. The Biffers are one of those bands, like the Ramones, wiht the ability to break down a genre, and build it back up again with an innocence and simplicity that was somehow lost along the way as others in the field have taken punk rock for granted. The result is a happy re-interpretation of punk rock where each song hits you like a shot of Galliano, which by no coincidence is distilled and bottled in The Biffers hometown. This album is a drinking game waiting to happen!"
The Biffers “Whoa!” will be available in the digital universe and in stores that sell Kung Fu Records worldwide beginning August 5th, 2014!
Biffers released a DIY 7" in Jan 2011.
In 2013 they released their first album Whoa! in CD with Inconsapevole Records, followed by some shows in their home country and 2 European tours.
2 more european tours are planned for 2014, promoting the album.
