Bobaflex (bō-bŭ-flĕx) is an American rock band from Point Pleasant, West Virginia. They were part of Gigantour in 2005 and Rock on the Range in 2008.
Formed in the 1990s, they have released three albums and are featured on the Gigantour DVD/CD. The latest album titled Tales From Dirt Town was released on 30 October 2007. The unique thing about the band is the two frontmen, brothers Shaun and Marty McCoy, who trade guitar and lead vocals, depending on the song.
Bobaflex was established in 1998 by the McCoys. The brothers are no strangers to the press, having ancestral ties to the most infamous family feud in American history, between the Hatfields and the McCoys which almost caused a war between the states of West Virginia and Kentucky in the 1880s.
Continuously co-headlining Ohio’s largest independent rock festival Woodshock three years in a row, they performed for crowds of over 5,000. ”It was crazy. The fans were buying everything we had, even the shirts off our backs,” stated Shaun McCoy.
After playing out of state for months at a time, the band returned to West Virginia to find themselves booked on 106.3-FM’s X-Fest, West Virginia's largest Rock festival, sponsored by Huntington’s largest commercial rock radio station, WAMX).
Performing to an audience of 12,000 and sharing the stage with Nickelback, Disturbed and many others, Bobaflex played there 3 years in a row, thus landing them a spot on the renowned Locobazooka tour in 2002 Filter, Sevendust, and Mushroomhead just to name a few.
The band continued to hit the road throughout 2002, independently booking tour dates through more than 13 states. “we had no idea they knew about us. It’s been a very rewarding experience to meet and get to know them”, says Jerod Mankin.
Primitive Epic. Sales of the sci-fi reality thriller began to take off. The band sold all 1,000 copies of the initial pressing in its first four weeks strictly through live performances, word of mouth, and mail order, which quickly caught the attention of New Jersey’s Eclipse Records (Mushroomhead, Disarray).
On June 23, 2009 Bobaflex posted a blog on their myspace stating they were in the studio working on a new album. No release date has been confirmed at this time.
