Kidneys is very excited to have signed to Porterhouse Records. We've been looking for a company that works for us and P-house made sense I've known Steve and Greg (obviously) for a number of years and their dedication to this label is comparable to what I want with Kidneys.

With the release of our record-dropping hard on Nov 24th, Kidneys will be playing our very first record release show at the Viper Room in L.A. on December 7th.

In the coming months after that, we'll violently take on the west coast and eventually other regions of the big A. After that bloodshed finishes we would love to eventually fly economy plus to the beautiful lands of Australia, Japan, Europe and any other countries that desire 3 gentlemen playing nothing but honest emotive (not emo) sounds called KIDNEYS.


It's the big debut night for Kidneys who launch their self titled album at the infamous Viper Room on the Sunset Strip. Monday December 7th is the date, and 10 P.M. is the time. The band will be playing cuts off the new release and entertaining all with antics and banter! Come join us in helping the guys celebrate the occasion.

No tour dates scheduled at this time, check back soon.

In 2008 Brooks Wackerman of Bad Religion and Tenacious D formed his own band Kidneys. Featuring Brooks on vocals and guitar, Kidneys live line up is rounded out by bassist John Spiker (Filter, Tenacious D) and Todd Hennig (Death By Stereo) giving the band an all-star line up that is a pleasure to experience in person. in fact audiences are always surprised to hear that the band is "just starting out" when confronted with their stellar musicianship.

For the creation of the bands first full length studio album Brooks not only performed on vocals guitars and drums, but wrote all the tracks and produced the release as well. The result is a well-rounded release that will impress even the most hard to please listener with a unique sound that falls somewhere between the clever melodies and arrangements of early Elvis Costello and the hard driving power pop of the Decendents.

Kidneys have lent tour support to Bad Religion, The Vandals, Save Ferris, and Yellowcard, and will continue to reach out from the stage to all that want to listen.
