Since their birth in Southern California in 2006, Spades and Blades has played shows, written music, screen printed their own merchandise, fabricated equipment, acted as promoter, manager, fundraiser and everything else in between. They are hard workers with an ethic that never sleeps. “Our plan is to continue relentlessly,” says Spades and Blades front man Jason Todd.
And continue relentlessly is exactly what they have done. As of 2014, following a couple of legitimate releases, “Blood Of The Innocent” (2010), and “Proud To Be Loud” (2013), some member changes to solidify their line-up, and a respectable number of live shows; the LP “The End Is Near” was released. The quartet then signed with Sullen Clothing’s music division, Sullen Musik, subsequently contracted with M7 Booking Agency and immediately set of on a national tour in support of that release.
