Olympic gold medalist Shaun White is showing off a new talent as the lead guitarist for LA-based Bad Things.
White, a professional snowboarder and skateboarder, has been friends with drummer Lena Zawaideh and guitarist Anthony Sanudo for years, since they all grew up together in North County San Diego. They added frontman Davis LeDuke and bassist Jared Palomar earlier this year to round out the group.
The new band has been signed to Warner Bros. Records and plans to put out their debut album later this year. The album is being produced by Rob Schnapf, who has previously worked with artists like Beck, Elliot Smith and The Vines. Bad Things is currently streaming the first offering from the album, a track called “Caught Inside.” The band is also going on tour in July and August, with stops in several northern U.S. cities and Canada.
