If you’re in my circle of friends, you no doubt know that Ballyhoo! is one of my favorite bands. I discovered their music back in 2011 when they were on the road with New Politics and Dirty Heads and fell in love with the CD-R they threw into the audience which I managed to catch.
This band has come a long way – their first album 365-Day Weekend was a fun, but very obvious, Green Day ripoff. As time went on, they released several more albums and found their own sound which blends their influences with an original and unique beach-inspired sound.
“Detonate” is the title track and lead single from their seventh album, which is out today, September 28th, 2018. You can pick it up from any of your favorite sources!
