In the summer of 2016, The Bourgeois released the Designer Genes EP on NoiseTrade where it was promptly downloaded over 1000 times in it’s first week. The band followed up by supporting bands like Eagles of Death Metal and Electric Six on their respective tours and landing enthusiastic features in Alternative Press, Nerdist, and PopMatters among others.
The Bourgeois have exploded on European music-streaming service Jamendo where the song Perverting the American Dream has racked up over 300,000 plays and 170,000 downloads alone. The rest of the world can’t be far behind.
“Sweet ‘n’ snotty vocalist/guitarist Zach Mobley knows when to ramp up the swagger to either sex up your honey (and his/her friends) or when some drunk guy needs his clock cleaned with the business end of a guitar. Their stripped-down rock has more heft than a Muay Thai punching bag.” – Alternative Press
