Are gastrointestinal problems music to your ears? (Created 10/11/2013)
A lot of boys with rock star ambitions have probably thought about what they would one day name their band. Something meaningful … something attention-grabbing. Something like… Diarrhea Planet?
Meet the Nashville –based group that doesn't mind being compared to a literal ass explosion. (Hey, it's hard to be PC when talking diarrhea). And if you must know, the name comes from the time the band's members spent at Belmost University, which, according to vocalist/guitarist Jordan Smith, is not exactly a great name to be dropping around Music City (who knew?). Thus the band members decided to come up with the most obnoxious, unlistenable name they could think of. The end result of endless brainstorming was the birth of Diarrhea Planet.
Of course their fan base also has a nickname, but it's not as gross as one would think. Instead of the Diarrhetics, fans of the band are referred to as Planeteers (in homage to Captain Planet). Other fun facts the band will reveal? They couldn't get a booking agent, their parents initially hated the name and they consider New Orleans 'the worst city for getting diarreha,' according to an interview on the website NOISEY.
In all seriousness, this now six-piece rock and roll band has been compared in some way to The Ramones holding Van Halen hostage with an arsenal of fireworks and explosives. Their self-released EP, "Aloha," became a sleeper online sensation, and the band is now signed to Nashville's Infinity Cat Recordings. They have traveled up and down the East Coast in support of their numerous releases, including the full-length album "Loose Jewels," which dropped on September 20th.
