|Straight Outta Junior High is probably the best band in the world. Their talent for making music is surpassed only by their talent for making new fans. Along with being sexy as hell, SOJH gives 110 percent at each show and goes the extra mile afterward. SOJH has a new EP called Six Stories. It shows how much the band has matured because all the songs are over 2 minutes long. SOJH's previous release, Mongoloid Monarchy, exemplified the sly wit and irreverent attitude that SOJH fans have come to admire. The album has sold extremely well around the country. SOJH has released two other awe-inspiring albums on their own, selling tons of them. They re-released Kiss of Deaf nationwide on Mindset Records/Fastmusic in 2004.
Straight Outta Junior High has been steadily touring the country with their brilliant, catchy, and humorous songs for over 4 years. SOJH has headlined shows from Minnesota to Texas and played shows from California to Florida. Pick a state and SOJH has played there. SOJH has made many bands feel inferior by playing with them, such as Sum 41, MXPX, Bayside, Zebrahead, Lit, Alkaline Trio,The Riddlin Kids, Allister, Plain White T's, and many more. SOJH has also played selected dates on 2003, 2004, and 2005 Warped Tours They could have played more but they didn't want to over-expose themselves. SOJH also had a spot on the punknews.org tour in the fall of 2004. In 2003 SOJH won the Ernie Ball battle of the bands thanks to fan voting. The band received free instruments and a show at the Key Club in Hollywood.
After all Straight Outta Junior High has accomplished it's hard to stay humble, but somehow SOJH manages to do that as well. SOJH plans to stay awesome, spend most of their time touring playing for their friends and fans all across the country.
But seriously, SOJH is probably not the best band in the world. That's a little bit of an exaggeration. SOJH has played tons of shows with all these bands and sold a lot of records on our own. We've gone through four vans and been a lot of places. Our guitar player quit a while ago. So we wrote a bunch of songs and recorded an album without him. Now we have a new guitar player, a new van, and a new album. Lots of kids like us, that part is true too.
We are going to stay humble and awesome at the same time. We really don't have rock star attitudes. If you bothered to read our bio this far you may realize that now. If not you'd think we are a bunch of pretentious self-serving assholes from our over-the-top band bio. Most likely you didn't read anything at all. Oh well. I try to make these things interesting but that's nearly impossible. Thanks for wasting your time.
