Krum Bums

Krum Bums Biography

Formed in early 2000 in Austin, Texas, The KrumBums featured Trae Martinez on guitar, J.V. Krum on bass, Chuck Bum on drums, and the larger than life Dave Tejas at center stage. Starting their assault on the Lone Star State with a handful of instant classics, four years of ear splitting guitars and hammering rhythms have seen The Bums mature into a full blown modern hardcore attack that is reaching the rest of the world. Early 2003 brought second guitarist Justin Junk on board, and later that year Chuck said his farewells, leading to the addition of Ricky Felon on drums.

Besides playing countless Texas shows, big or small, city or town, The KrumBums have logged their share of miles and flat tires on the open highways. Tours with Cut Throat Hoods, Bob Murder and Strap Onz took the boys throughout the South and Midwest in 2002, and 2003s follow-up tour with Strap Onz along the West Coast and through the Southwest even included a stint supporting Slaughter and the Dogs.

Other bands who have shared the stage with The KrumBums include: T.S.O.L., Youth Brigade, Fear, Verbal Abuse, The Virus, The Casualties, Unseen, The Forgotten, Defiance, The Distillers, as well as many shows with local pals the Lower Class Brats, The Bricks and The Applicators.

As well as recording several demos and appearing on a few compilation albums, The KrumBums music has also been featured on ESPNs Bluetorch Television along with Conspiracy Skateboards. Their features on local television and radio programs have led to appearances in not one, but two films shot in Austin.
