One Dream at a Time
A Long Year
Formerly known as the SpacePimps, Eternal Boy are a pop-punk trio from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania who draw influence from the heyday of the Drive-Thru Records era.
Singer/guitarist Rishi Bahl, bassist Joe Harbulak, and drummer Andy Mayer all met in high school and began playing shows locally in 2003, honing their songs for a few years before self-releasing their full-length debut, Turn It Up!, in 2006. It caught the attention of Japanese label Kick Rock Music, who reissued the album a year later and brought the SpacePimps out for a tour of Japan. The international attention helped them earn some traction at home and they soon became regulars on the Warped Tour between 2007-2009. Working with producer Chris Badami, the band recorded its follow-up LP, 2010's Stuck Here Forever, which again saw release in Japan and China as well as the U.S. Their third album, 2013's Eternal Boy, was their most successful yet, entering digital charts in the Top 40 and faring even better on the alternative charts. After a return to Japan and China as well as a North American tour, the band decided to retire the SpacePimps name and carry on as Eternal Boy, re-releasing their third album solely under that moniker. After signing with Four Chord Music, the trio returned to the studio with Badami to record 2017's Awkward Phase, their fourth overall album and first official release as Eternal Boy. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
