Summer 2018 just got more exciting with a tour announcement from Ballyhoo! The Maryland reggae/rock group will hit the road with fellow Marylanders Bumpin’ Uglies and Cleveland, Ohio natives Tropidelic.
2018’s “Good Vibrations” Summer Tour starts in Ocean City, Maryland on July 2nd before looping through the South and West Coast through July, ending back on the East Coast in mid-August. There will be 25 total dates across 14 states with extended stays in California, Texas and Arizona. Ballyhoo!, with two 2018 singles already streaming, looks to rally their lifelong fans in preparation of their upcoming album. This album, still unnamed, will be their 7th studio release. In previous interviews, front-man Howi Spangler told The Pier be ready for a return to classic Ballyhoo!, with heavy rock and punk stylings laced throughout.
Bumpin’ Uglies, still riding the wave from the release of their 2018 full-length album Beast from the East, are excited to get on the road with two of the very bands featured on said album.
Tropidelic is expected to play brand new music and much of their latest release, Heavy is the Head (2017), which features 10 tracks and a sound unique to the reggae-rock scene, drawing heavily from funk and jam. (source: The Pier)
