Bridge The Gap Discusses New Single, Recent Album And More!


 Melodic punk rock band BRIDGE THE GAP take these genres and some skate punk elements, to create their own genre they consider music! With that they have released an album, and have all new music, with a single coming up this holiday season as well. The band discusses their music creativity, new music, and much more.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We were in a band together for a long time 20 years ago. We toured and put out records for about 10 years then called it quits. We got jobs and started families. We reconnected a couple years ago and started a new band. Bridge The Gap.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

I can’t say for sure. But we like what it means. Bridging the gap, overcoming the obstacle. It’s an optimistic representation of what we believe in as a band.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Some of us live in Utah, some in Colorado. We do a lot of our writing separately, then get together to rehearse and perform. There’s a cool band in Salt Lake City, where two of us live, called White Noise Vision. Check ‘em out.

4. How would you describe your style?

Our sound his the ‘90s melodic punk rock that we grew up listening to and playing (we’re in our 40s) with a little bit of a new spin on it. Skatepunk.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Bridge The Gap has released one album, earlier this year, entitled ‘Secret Kombinations’ on People of Punk Rock Records. The album was recorded at The Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO, and was produced by Bill Stevenson (Rise Against, Hot Water Music, Descendents). If you like bands like Bad Religion, No Use For A Name, Strung Out, and Pennywise, you’ll probably dig BTG.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We do. We have a new single dropping on Halloween and we’re going back to The Blasting Room to record a new full-length album in February 2024.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’ve been playing a few shows but no tours yet. At this stage, we’re taking it as it comes and looking for good booking representation. None of us are in a position to do what we used to and hop in a van for 30 days and try to book shows across the Fruited Plain ourselves. We’re too busy with our families and whatnot. So we’re looking for the right opportunities. But we’ve had several offers to tour. It just hasn’t lined up yet.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We’re going to put out a new record in 2024 and do a lot more live stuff to support it and Secret Kombinations. That includes touring the U.S., Canada, and hopefully, Europe.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Search Bridge The Gap on any streaming service and find Secret Kombinations. Buy merch, LPs, and CDs at

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

That it’s just music.
