The Business End consider themselves pioneers of a new genre. â€śSnow-punk,â€ť says vocalist Mike Ward. â€śLike skate-punk for snowboarders. Not that what we play can or should be limited to those who board, but if a musically and lyrically diverse band like Lagwagon can fit into the skate-punk genre, we, along with all of our varying subject matter and influences can surely justify the christening of a new genre and reside there for whatever purpose a genre provides.â€ť Although the band have been through some serious stuff since forming in 2006 (including drugs and jail time), the Business End reemerged in 2011 as a strong unit with a sense of humor. â€śWe don't tend to take ourselves seriously for more than a few minutes at a time,â€ť says Ward. The Business End are currently working on new material and â€ślooking for a label to call home.â€ť
