Bad Bad Hats is an indie rock band from Minneapolis, MN. It is made up of Kerry Alexander (vocals, guitar), Chris Hoge (guitar), Noah Boswell (bass), and Connor Davison (drums).
Kerry, Chris, and Noah met while attending Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. Kerry and Chris started writing songs together in 2010, recording a collection of demos that would later become the It Hurts EP. Noah joined the band in 2012 and the trio began performing live. Minneapolis label Afternoon Records signed the group and released the It Hurts EP in early 2013 and their first full-length album, Psychic Reader, in the summer of 2015. As primary songwriter, Kerry's perspective is the guiding force behind Bad Bad Hats. Psychic Reader was the result of the trio's sonic growth, drawing from the influences of all three members and bolstered by the experimental touches of the album's producer, Brett Bullion. When it was time to record their second full-length effort, Bullion introduced the band to Connor Davison, multi-instrumentalist and frontman of another Minneapolis band called Wingman. Connor was recruited to play drums on the new album, but became a full-time member in the process. Since the release of Psychic Reader, the band has toured the U.S. extensively. Their sophomore album is nearly complete.
