“Is It Good Enough?” out NOW!

The long cherished dream and endlessly fermented ideas of The Bad Tones have just been completed and are passed on to you, our listeners, from early July. Is It Good Enough? is our debut album. It includes everything we have felt, thought and done in the recent years.



The Bad Tones is a nature and blues driven psychedelic rock / indie quartet from Latvia (previously known as The Pink Elephant) consisting of Rūdolfs Ozols (guitar, backvocals), Edvards Broders (vocals, guitar, keys), Alberts Levics (bass, vocals) and Kalvis Sležis (drums, backvocals).

All the members have been involved with music since their early teens and playing in various different bands before founding The Bad Tones. In this ensemble they’ve found their unique sound by mixing skills crafted through classic rock and blues standards with the song writing approach of modern, independent music.

For the past couple of years they’ve been studying music in The Netherlands and gaining success in their local region – the Baltic States.

After the release of their album Is It Good Enough?, they’re ready to spend countless hours touring the world, playing obscure venues and making it through to the other side. A lot of ambition, a lot of talent, attention to details, thoughtful song writing and a solid technical background.
