BOWLING FOR SOUP W/ THE DOLLYROTS & PATENT PENDING – ONE BIG HAPPY TOUR, OCTOBER 2012
August 14, 2012 by RED
Bowling For Soup is 18 years old and what better way to commemorate such an achievement than packing up the full-band and heading back to the UK, for what will be their 30th visit.
Having just completed a busy spring of touring the Middle East (entertaining the troops), a widely successful UK acoustic tour, and a tour of the North Eastern United States, BFS are delighted to announce a 15-date blitz of the UK. Support comes in the form of American counterparts The Dollyrots and Patent Pending.
… This is the ‘One Big Happy Tour’.
Already this summer fans have been treated to a brand new song, T.G.I.S (Thank God It’s Summer) which is featured on the Crappy Records, Have A Crappy Summer compilation.
Ahead of the tour, BFS will release a new album on their Brando/Queso Records label, entitled, One Big Happy. The album features BFS, The Dollyrots and Patent Pending. They will all take on a track belonging to each of the other bands as well as adding a brand new song of their own to the mix. The album will be closed with a Jaret Reddick (BFS) and Kelly Ogden (The Dollyrots) duet.
18 years after frontman Jaret Reddick started a humble little rock band in Denton, Texas, there is no sign of BFS letting-up. They remain as busy and creative as ever, with plans for the future, not least a potential live DVD capturing the fun and frolics of their Glasgow acoustic show earlier this year.
Sharp-eyed BFS fans will be quick to notice the lack of a London date on ‘The One Big Happy Tour’ and this grey cloud comes with an enormous silver lining as, BFS are beyond excited to be a part of The Warped Tour’s return to the UK at Alexandra Palace, London, November 10th, 2012. So make a day of it and witness a taste of the legendary tour on home soil.
