The band is proud to also announce today they have launched their first ever “Official Ballyhoo! App” for iOS and Android. The free App allows fans to stream the band’s music, follow the band’s tour dates, purchase tickets, RSVP to shows and events, visit the Ballyhoo! merch store, link up with the band in real time via social media and more! The new App is a must-have for every “Hooligan” – the name Ballyhoo! dubs their loyal fanbase! Download the Free App on iOS devices, here: http://bit.ly/bhooiosapp or for Android devices, here: http://bit.ly/bhooandroid.

Howi Spangler, vocals and guitarist for Ballyhoo!, explains, “As a tech geek, I’ve been calling for a mobile app for years. We finally had the opportunity when The Morley Group approached us last year. They are big fans of the band and gave us a great deal! We’re stoked because now everyone can have our tour dates and more in the palm of their hands. It’s available for free for iOS and Android right now!”

Ballyhoo!’s upcoming tour is their first since the back-to-back Fall and Winter “BrewHaHa” Tours the band just wrapped up with co-headliners Passafire. The first tour took the band across the East Coast and due to the high volume of fan requests, the duo decided to promptly take the tour out West, packing venues from Arizona through California to Washington and back through the Midwest — selling out six of the tour’s major shows!

Like the tour’s name suggests Ballyhoo!’s Pineapple Grenade is their latest to date. The latest single, “No Good” was produced by Rome Ramirez (Sublime with Rome) and mixed by Paul Leary (Sublime, U2).  The band followed up the single release with a sultry video premiere on FUSE.tv. The video was directed byWes “Wuz Good” Armstrong (B.o.B, T-Pain, Flo Rida). Check out the video, here: http://youtu.be/Xfn0RdOwNTc.

The single “No Good” has been receiving spins on HFS in Baltimore and the song has been added to 96.5 The Buzz in Kansas City, KS103.9 RXP inColorado Springs, CO, and 106.3 WJSE in Atlantic City, NJ.

The track is the follow-up to the first single released off Pineapple Grenade “Run” that hit #1 on SiriusXM Faction. The band self-released the album on their new label Right Coast Records and shortly thereafter, Pineapple Grenade hit #4 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, #189 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart and #5 on the iTunes Alternative Charts.

Pineapple Grenade is available for purchase on iTunes (http://bit.ly/PineappleGrenade) for digital copies and Ballyhoo!’s website www.ballyhoorocks.com for physical copies. The iTunes exclusive album includes two bonus tracks.
