The reggae/rock band Ballyhoo! has teamed up with FUSE to exclusively premiere their new music video for “Walk Away” today! Coming off the band’s most successful year – playing 166 shows including the 311 Caribbean Cruise, Bamboozle, a fall tour with Tribal Seeds, all dates on The Vans Warped Tour and reaching #1 on SiriusXM Faction – Ballyhoo! is thrilled to end the on such a high note with a premiere on Fuse.TV! Watch the new video, here: http://on.fuse.tv/11KWgTK.
Ballyhoo! also ends the year with the announcement of their “Hardcore Hooligan” limited edition pre-order package for their Spring 2013 full length album. Lead singer/ guitarist for Ballyhoo! Howi Spangler explains, “I’ve always loved the idea of somehow including our fan base in the making of an album – letting them watch it all come together in real time, rather than watching a documentary later. The ‘Hardcore Hooligan’ package is something we came up with to try and make that happen.”
For $30, fans will receive an exclusive, limited edition of the new album with their own faces in a collage within the cover art booklet to commemorate the fans’ involvement. Hardcore Hooligans will also receive exclusive access to the band throughout Ballyhoo!’s recording process including weekly web cam sneak-peeks inside the studio to watch the band record and arrange new music. Spangler adds, “They’ll see us talking about the art and the album title and we’re even going to do a storyteller session and album stream a few weeks before the release exclusively for these fans. I’m really excited to see where it goes.” For details on the “Hardcore Hooligan” package, visit: http://ballyhoorocks.com/hooligans/.
Never slowing down, immediately following the recording of their fourth full-length album in January, Ballyhoo! will return to the road with Kayavibe joining them on the Winter Wonderland Tour.
Ballyhoo!’s momentum throughout 2012 was kicked off by their Fall 2011 release of the album, Daydreams, debuting at #1 on the iTunes Reggae Charts and #4 on Amazon. Ballyhoo!’s fanbase continues to grow through the band’s steadfast commitment to touring and the growing awareness of the band at radio.
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.
