“Last Night” is the #1 Song on Sirius XM Faction This Week:
The reggae/rock band Ballyhoo! is back on the road again, announcing today they will tour the Northeast in November with dates in Maryland, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, Ohio and Pennsylvania. This announcement comes the same week that Ballyhoo!’s song “Last Night” was ranked #1 on SiriusXM Faction – beating out new tracks from The Offspring, The Gaslight Anthem and NOFX. Lead singer Howi Spangler commented, “We were surprised and delighted to see that we were number one on SiriusXM’s Faction. Having one of our songs heard nationally is a goal that we’ve been working towards since we started the band. We’ve been working really hard for a long time and we want to thank the DJs and programmers at Faction and SiriusXM for the support.”
Ballyhoo! kicked-off the summer with a bang, performing on 311’s Five-Day Caribbean Cruise and at Bamboozle Festival, with headliners the Foo Fighters and Bon Jovi. They went on to play all dates on the 2012 Vans Warped Tour and just finished up a national tour with Tribal Seeds. Spangler noted, “We came right off of Warped Tour and jumped into the Tribal Seeds tour. It was cool to get back to the larger club vibe after doing festivals all summer long. It was a pleasure to hang with those guys and their fans were really great.”
The band continues to gain momentum with 2012 being the biggest and most successful year of its career, which was kicked off by last fall’s 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! has shared the stage with some of the biggest names in rock and reggae including 311, Slightly Stoopid, The Dirty Heads, Pepper, Toots & The Maytals and Matisyahu.
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 summer / fall radio play includes: 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.
