The Huntington Beach Independent recently caught up with Jake Buschnell, vocalist of the newly revived ska/reggae band HB Surround Sound. While talking about the their start as a band he mentions the support they received from Avenged Sevenfold and opening shows for them.
It opened for the popular Huntington Beach metal band, Avenged Sevenfold, in the early 2000s. Despite playing a different genre of music, HB Surround Sound’s music was well received by the crowd.
“That’s how cool Avenged Sevenfold is,” Jake Bushnell (vocals) said in an interview on Main Street in Huntington Beach. “We sound totally different than them, but they were our friends and decided to put us on their show. We played some reggae stuff but mostly punk and metal kinds of songs. The crowd was like, ‘Alright, this is different’ and liked it. That was great.”
