It's easy, breezy, super fun pop-punk music, the kind that embeds itself in your brain for weeks at a time and that demands to be listened to with the windows down, with the wind in your hair and sun splashing your face! It's certainly got a summer vibe.

Howi Spangler, lead singer/ guitar for Ballyhoo! , told us, "We are thrilled to finally get Pineapple Grenade out to the world. It's been a long six months from writing and recording to artwork and finally going to press. It's coming out on our own label as well. That's something that I've wanted to do for a long time. We love the songs and general vibe of the album. We feel like we really made a special record. Can't wait for our hooligans and any potential new listeners to hear it. Cheers!"
We love the ska-flecked "Battle Cry" and the easy groove of "She Wants to Destroy Me."
The band is currently co-headlining a 40+ date national tour with Authority Zero, called The Summer Sickness Tour.
