The Pier reviews DAYDREAMS::

“The first few sounds you’ll hear are indeed some broken piano scales in the song “Evil Penguin”. The Evil Penguin is actually a metaphor for the whole system on which we dwell upon and by. The chorus was profoundly outlined in weighty power chords by Lead singer and guitarist Howi Spangler. The Piano appears later in the song as Spangler belts out, “Find a way to disobey, start taking back what’s yours”.

Last Calls and Liabilities Tour::

We’re hitting the road with Pepper and The Expendables this September and October. Tickets are on sale now. We’re keeping the summer vibes alive. Be sure to get there early as we go on first every night! We’ll be playing songs from our new record DAYDREAMS too. Preorder your copy here! 

Here’s the official press release:

“Last Calls & Liabilities” tour September 5, 2011 through October 9, 2011

 Labelmates Ballyhoo! and Pepper have joined forces for one of the biggest tours this Fall, “Last Calls & Liabilities”.  The tour will begin in Tempe, AZ on September 5, 2011 at the Marquee Theatre and end in Los Angeles, CA on October 9, 2011 at Club Nokia at LA Live.

 “The Last Calls & Liabilities” tour features headliner Pepper with special guests Ballyhoo! and The Expendables, “After finishing Warped Tour with The Expendables, it was the perfect spring board for the Fall Tour”, states Yesod Williams of Pepper, “with Ballyhoo! throwing gas on the fire, all I can say is BOOM!!”.

 MTV.com selected Ballyhoo! as one of the bands to watch for in 2011 and it would appear they were correct as Ballyhoo! is having a paramount year – signing with LAW Records, the independent record label that is owned by their tourmates, Pepper, headlining their own national tour and releasing their first single from the new album, DAYDREAMS, “Say I’m Wrong”.  Now, the guys from Maryland are looking forward to taking it on the road, “We’re pumped to get out on the road with Pepper this Fall.  We’re looking forward to really shining under the LAW umbrella and playing some of the new songs,” excitedly states Howi Spangler, lead singer and guitarist of Ballyhoo!.

Here are the Tour Dates!
