Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album “Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status.
Sponge is now touring in support of a brand new release – “Stop The Bleeding.” The full-length album incorporates the traditional “Sponge sound” in addition to exploring edgier, industrial grooves, most apparent on the band’s twisted cover of “Time In A Bottle.”
Sponge is poised to bring its potent brand of Detroit rock to the masses, once again proving that rock never stops. ’Stop The Bleeding’ will be available September 17, 2013 via 313/The End Records
