BALLYHOO! will release their fourth full-length album, DAYDREAMS, on September 6, 2011. The album‟s first single, “Say I‟m Wrong”, will be available for free download at the band‟s official website, www.BALLYHOOrocks.com. Pre-order bundles for the 12-track album will also be available on the website beginning July 19, 2011.
DAYDREAMS will be BALLYHOO!‟s first album on LAW Records, the independent record label owned by the dub rock mega-sensation, Pepper. “Combine some of the catchiest music with one of the hardest working bands I know – that’s BALLYHOO!! They were the perfect addition to LAW! WATCH OUT PEOPLE!” states Yesod Williams of Pepper.
DAYDREAMS is BALLYHOO!‟s follow-up to their 2008 release of CHEERS!. While it still retains their signature reggae rock sound, it is noticeably more refined, “I think the new album is better musically and lyrically. We just play better now,” explains BALLYHOO!‟s lead singer and guitarist Howi Spangler. Scott Vandrey (DJ Blaze) expanded their instrumental repertoire with the addition of the piano. This enhancement opened the doors to an entirely new, multidimensional sound for the band and is particularly evident in the song “Ricochet”.
BALLYHOO! recorded DAYDREAMS at Sound Lounge Studios in Orlando, FL with the talented, up and coming music producing duo, Greg Shields and Mike Stebe. Howi attributes a great deal of the new sound on DAYDREAMS to their input, "Greg and Mike's fresh approach helped take our signature sound to the next level. The production is stellar."
DAYDREAMS is an incredible album, nearly three years in the making, that demonstrates the artistic development and maturation of „America‟s favorite party band‟. Yesod enthusiastically sums the new album up, “these songs are so catchy they keep me up at night!!” # # #
