LA's The Happy Hollows Announce Summer Tour Dates

LA's charismatic power-trio The Happy Hollows have announced summer headlining tour dates in support of their highly acclaimed debut album, "Spells" which was released earlier this year. The band's live performances have earned The Happy Hollows a devoted following and it's now poised to spread even further. Some might recognize the young group's infectious and irreverent noise-pop from MTVu's regular rotation of the clever animated video for "Death To Vivek Camp," others may recall the band's sly performance coup in this ubiquitous Samsung commercial. The Happy Hollows' upcoming dates include a performance at the NXNE festival in Toronto, ON with Japandroids and Wavves.

"Spells" is a culmination of The Happy Hollows' work with producer and former Mighty Lemon Drops guitarist David Newton (The Little Ones, The Blood Arm), who also produced the group's 2008 EP "Imaginary."

The Happy Hollows vocalist/guitarist Sarah Negahdari wields ominous riffs and finger-tapped arpeggios while singing with a cherubic-yet-mischievous grin. Meanwhile, the agile rhythm section of Charles Mahoney (bass/vocals) and Chris Hernandez (drums/vocals) vault and lunge with precision. Over a very short time, the band leapt from playing small shows in restaurants and laundromats to packed headlining performances in its home base, as well as scoring coveted appearances on major network television, MTV, Sirius and XM radio airplay.
