The Presidents of the United States of America on tour

Since their inception over a decade ago, THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA have remained one of America’s best live bands, combining their indie garage sound and intelligent weirdo lyrics into an unforgettably fantastic live show. PUSA have proved how a little garage band can have long-term success by sticking to their roots, taking care of their fans, giving away music (free weekly downloads at ), and keeping it simple, stupid.

Every year they headline and sellout tours in the US and Europe, with an Australia or Japan added in for texture. Their sets are 90-minute joy-fests, where the crowd is tasked with singing, stomping, and general ‘4th President’ duties. It’s something to see. If you don’t believe it, ask a door person or bartender at your town’s favorite club, and chances are you’ll get an earful.

With their latest album “These Are the Good Times People”, released in March of 2008, PUSA delivered an uplifting and often brilliant rock & roll album. Now they are releasing 3 new EP’s, available exclusively at iTunes, that each include a song from the album, an exclusive B-Side and a new video. That’s three (3) videos, people. Big budget numbers, with helicopters and explosions. You bet.
