How did Wheatus escape the pre-internet music industry dark age with their lives? According to frontman Brendan B Brown, "a very important record executive lost his cool with me in a meeting and threatened to drop us... I took him up on it..."

Wheatus' debut single 'Teenage Dirtbag' cracked the Top 40 BBC Official Sales Chart for a second time in March of 2011 and this year again in April - ten years after its debut at #2 on the same chart. To say that Wheatus have been through the wringer in the decade between is the original understatement. Lawsuits, lineup changes, interstate art heist investigations (yes, really), betrayals, intellectual property theft, physical violence, post traumatic front man Brown could write a book.

To date their first record has sold more than five million copies worldwide. Any manager or record label would be happy to tout those stats to the press but Wheatus have remained unsigned and unmanaged for the last eight years. Unlike many of their peers from the early oughts, Wheatus continue to write, record, and tour 15 years after their inception, having taken control of their revenue stream with the home made, pick-your-price download system fans can use at Wheatus.com. They have released five studio albums since 2000 and are currently in preproduction for album six.

With a new line-up, Wheatus hit the road mid decade throughout the US and UK, including the sold out UK 'Get Happy Tour', and their own independent University and College Tours, which once again put the band on stage in front of tens of thousands of fans, who sing along... loudly.

Now Wheatus are heading down-under in September for their ‘Still A Teenage Dirtbag’ tour, supported by local Indie-Pop band Nova & the Experience.
