Check Out: 'Bathurst'
Guitarist David Pike says when Bathurst formed near the end of 2010, their sound was no coincidence. âAt the time, we weren't concerned about what genre was currently âcoolâ or selling well,â says Pike. âRather, we all wanted to play music and write songs we would want to hear, that were in the same vein as the punk rock we grew up listening to in the â90s and early â00s.â Pike says Bathurst were lucky pop punkâs grand resurgence coincided with their bandâs existence, accrediting their success thus far to supportive friends, good contacts and taking a few risks, such as playing shows where they didnât necessarily fit the bill. âThese shows led to us playing with and making some really cool friends in more successful bands,â says Pike. âWe've had the pleasure of opening for Such Gold, Living With Lions, Bayside, Fireworks, Transit and Tigers Jaw, just to name a few.â
