Los Angeles-based three-piece BEAUTY SCHOOL DROPOUT (BSD) deliver a seamless mixture of pop, alt-rock, punk and hip-hop with unbridled energy on their debut EP BOYS DO CRY, released last Friday, October 8. The EP was executive produced by 4x Grammy Award-winning producer Rob Cavallo (Green Day, My Chemical Romance) and Fever 333 vocalist Jason Aalon Butler, who also guests on the new single “I Love It,” which was officially added to SiriusXM Octane today (10/12), having initially premiered it on 10/7. Singles from BOYS DO CRY are also currently featured on several popular official streaming rock playlists from Spotify (‘Rock Hard,’ ‘Alt Scene,’ ‘FORYOU,’ ‘New Noise,’ ‘Rock This’) and Apple Music (‘Breaking Hard Rock,’ ‘New In Rock’).
The band–formed in 2020 by vocalist Cole Hutzler and bassist Brent Burdett, following the dissolve of their former alt-rock band Strangefaces, along with producer and guitarist Bardo–celebrated BOYS DO CRY’s release with a fiery sold-out hometown show at Winston House in Venice on Saturday night, 10/9. This marks their third sold-out Los Angeles show in the past year, with previous shows including Haven House (6/4) and Harvard & Stone (6/30). Earlier this year BSD were seen on a 22-date tour across the U.S. with Royal & The Serpents and Pvris, which they documented in the rousing music for their brazen single “Starphucker” featuring Royal & The Serpents.

BSD have developed a fervent fanbase garnered from their TikTok channel where they have over 900K views and are known for their series of videos covering current mainstream pop singles with their own ‘renegade rock’ take. The band’s cover of Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” was even reposted by Lil Nas X himself on his social media pages. They’ve also attracted the attention of fellow notable musicians including Paris Jackson, Nessa Barrett and Loren Grey.
