Reggae/Rock band Ballyhoo is prepping for their scheduled 2014 Summer tour that runs from July 18th to August 31st. The tour is in support of the band's forthcoming EP Halo - due out June 17th via Right Coast Records. iTunes Pre-Order for the EP is now open. One of the performances before the tour officially begins will be at Philly's Hard Rock Cafe.
The EP features a free bonus track of "The Lazy Song" (Bruno Mars cover) that already debuted at #6 on the iTunes Reggae charts. The EP also features the title track "Halo (Beautiful Day)" produced by the legendary John Feldmann (Neon Trees, Goldfinger, The Used). Feldmann brings out the band's punk energy and pop reggae grooves to the track, reinforcing the band as a fan-loving powerhouse.

This new 3-track EP is a follow-up to Ballyhoo!'s 5th studio album Pineapple Grenade. The band independently released the album on their own record label, Right Coast Records, in the summer of 2013 and broke through the Billboard Top 200 at #189 as well as reaching #4 Billboard Heatseekers and #5 at iTunes Alternative charts.
Pineapple Grenade features the single "No Good," produced by Rome Ramirez (Sublime with Rome) and mixed by Paul Leary (U2, Sublime). The band followed up the single release with a sultry video premiere on FUSE.tv. The video was directed by Wes "Wuz Good" Armstrong (B.o.B, T-Pain, Flo Rida). Check out the video, here: http://youtu.be/Xfn0RdOwNTc.
The first single "Run" saw an early radio add from KRAB Bakersfield and early radio spins by KROQ Los Angeles, WHFS Baltimore, KTCL Denver, and KCXX Riverside among others. Alongside the album release, BALLYHOO! co-headlined the 2013 Summer Sickness Tour with Authority Zero. Pineapple Grenade is the band's follow-up to the 2011 LAW Records release of "Daydreams," which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Charts and #4 on Amazon.
Between the road and the studio, BALLYHOO! have crafted a sound distinctly their own; fresh, fun, and embodied by the soul of the party lifestyle. Lead singer and guitarist, Howi Spangler, has a reputation for mixing slick lyrics with his smooth but powerful voice. Drummer Donald Spangler lays out the hard-hitting beats. Scott Vandrey layers in the finishing touches to the band's signature sound on keys. The band recently welcomed Nick Lucera as their new bass player.
