Fresh off playing their second 311 Caribbean Cruise and Headlining the Winter Wonderland tour, Ballyhoo! is currently finishing up their 5th studio album, set to be released this summer. The highly anticipated album will be the band’s first since releasing Daydreams in the Fall of 2011, which debuted at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Charts and #4 on Amazon. The success of Daydreams led the band to navigate their most successful year yet, playing 166 shows in 2012 including the entire Vans Warped Tour, the 311 Caribbean Cruise in 2012 and 2013, Bamboozle, and a national tour with Tribal Seeds. Ballyhoo!’s fanbase continues to grow through steadfast touring, leading to the band reaching #1 on SiriusXM Faction.


Ballyhoo!’s relaxed sound mixed with the band’s energetic performance style has been gaining a reputation on the national alternative radio scene as well. Highlights of Ballyhoo!’s 2012 radio play include: HFS Baltimore, WWDC Washington DC, SiriusXM Faction, WRFF Philadelphia, KUCD Honolulu, KRAB Bakersfield, WEND Charlotte, WARQ Columbia, KITS San Francisco, WJRR Orlando, WRKN New Orleans, KFMA Tucson, WRRV Hudson Valley, WXDX Pittsburgh, WSUN Tampa, and KDJE Little Rock.
