The Expendables enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, CA; surfing,

skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The

Expendables have staked their claim in the California surf/rock genre by headlining

venues from coast to coast. Blending Reggae, Punk Rock, and 80s style dueling

guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years.

The band consists of four longtime friends: Geoff Weers (Guitar and Vocals), Adam

Patterson (Drums and Vocals), Raul Bianchi (Lead Guitar) and Ryan DeMars (Bass).

The first seven years of their career was fueled with three full-length, completely

independent releases. No Time To Worry (2000), Open Container (2001), and

Gettin’ Filthy (2004), would bring in a combined total of over 40,000 units sold with

no physical distribution and no record label.

While touring and supporting their album, Gettin’ Filthy, The Expendables would

share the stage with Slightly Stoopid and catch the attention of founders and front

men Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty. In 2007 Slightly Stoopid formed their own

independent label, Stoopid Records, and signed The Expendables for the label’s first

non-Stoopid release, which was The Expendables self-titled. Released in

September 2007, the album would be accepted as an instant classic by fans and

received rave reviews from critics.

The band continued supporting the album with hundreds of shows over the next two

years, gaining fans around the world, and respect from the bands that influenced

them. The band would share the stage with bands like Slightly Stoopid, NoFX, Less

Than Jake, Pennywise and Pepper to name a few. At the end of 2009 and beginning

of 2010 the band would work on their next album Prove It produced by Paul Leary

(producer of Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Supersuckers, as well as the guitar

player for Butthole Surfers) and El Hefe (guitar player for NoFX).

Prove It was released May 11th 2010 debuting at #158 on the Billboard Top 200,

#30 on Billboard’s Independent charts, and #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers!

The album also pushed to #15 on iTunes Top 200 and #5 on iTunes Alternative

Charts, jumping The Expendables to a new level in their career. The band’s new release

would include guest performances by C-Money, OG, and Dela of Slightly Stoopid

throughout the album. Jumping into the mix as well would be long time friend G. Love

on the ballad “Wells.

The Expendables have continued their tenacious touring schedule in 2011 and was a featured band on all dates of the massive yearly festival favorite, Warped Tour.  Starting 2012 strong, The Expendables rang in the New Year with Slightly Stoopid at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, shortly followed after by their annual Winter Black Out Tour. 

After numerous hours in studio, The Expendables  prepare to release their 6th full-length studio album, “Gone Soft” set to come out this May.  Highlighting the versatile and dynamic musicianship of the band, the album will be an all acoustic album, showcasing previous popular songs as mellow acoustic ballads.  In support of the album, the Expendables will be joined by Unwritten Law on an acoustic/electric tour around Southern California giving fans the chance to experience the powerful and energetic performance that has made The Expendables such a unique band in it’s genre while also introducing fans to a new, “softer” side to their music.

Thirteen years later and countless miles covered, The Expendables show no sign of slowing down.
