“My dad always played music, mostly jazzy-type bass. So I was always around her. I discovered rap when I was eight years old. Then I was introduced to the punk rock scene and started listening to Rancid and Lagwagon and it just evolved. I was obsessed.” – David Schmitt

Turn up the volume for this one! Monster Energy is proud to welcome American electronic music sensation Breathe Carolina on episode 8 of the alternative sports and pop culture podcast UNLEASHED featuring The Dingo and Danny. This final hour-long episode features the band’s two members, Tommy Cooperman and David Schmitt, best known for their RIAA-certified gold single “Blackout” as well as performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Warped Tour and at the Winter X Games.

The two musicians moved to Studio M at Monster Energy’s headquarters in Corona, Calif., after playing their first live gigs in more than a year of pandemic lockdown. “It’s a feeling you forget. You don’t think or feel that you miss it. But then you’re there and you say, “We’re back here!” It’s a whole surge of different energy! Schmitt said on the new podcast episode.

Famous for their high-energy performances, Breathe Carolina has built a global fan base by blending innovative sounds with punk rock energy that resonates with action sports. Listen closely as the band members discuss their origins and career milestones with the two podcast hosts, Australian action sports personality Luke “The Goofy” Trembath and professional snowboarder Danny Kass. The episode is now streaming on all major platforms including Spotify, iTunes and YouTube.

Breathe Carolina was co-founded by Schmitt in Denver in 2007. The group’s name was based on a dream of a girl named Carolina that Schmitt had in ninth grade. Speaking about his musical upbringing, Schmitt said, “My dad always played music, mostly jazzy-type bass. So I was always around her. I discovered rap when I was eight years old. Then I was introduced to the punk rock scene and started listening to Rancid and Lagwagon and it just evolved. I was obsessed. My dad bought me a bass guitar when I was twelve. Now we do electronic music, so it’s always evolved.

The band has evolved tremendously over the years, from creating music for home laptops that resonated across the internet. After creating a profile on the popular Myspace website, the group went from having 10,000 song plays in 2008 to attracting a huge following with over 30 million plays in 2009.

“You have to think back then people weren’t used to streaming. It wasn’t normal to stream, you’d go buy a CD,” Cooperman said. “And there was no playlist makers. People had to go find you on Myspace. Now you’re put on ‘New Music Fridays’, you instantly get three million streams just because you’re in that playlist,” Schmitt said.

Freshly signed to a record label, Breathe Carolina’s fame exploded: the band played the Vans Warped Tour in 2009, their music has been featured on The Jay Leno Show and MTV’s The City series. The band’s fame stabilized in 2011 when the single “Blackout” achieved gold status certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for selling over 500,000 copies. This was followed by performances on national television on Jimmy Kimmel Live and in front of action sports crowds at the 2011 Winter X Games.

Cooperman officially joined the band in 2013 after touring with Breathe Carolina for years. But as he reveals on the podcast, his previous music career has seen him on his way to pop stardom. “I was in a band called It Boys, it was more of a boy band. I played bass and sang,” the artist said on the podcast, also revealing that none other than The Goofy only starred in the band’s biggest music video at the time.

Other rare stories revealed in the episode include Schmitt nearly being thrown in jail in Thailand and the band’s frequent tours of China just before travel was halted due to the coronavirus. “You can talk about China all day, but once you’re in China, you’re like, ‘It’s a whole new world!’ It’s all a different thought process. It’s all different and we love it. You’re fully living a whole new way of life,” Schmitt said on the show.
