So, it’s been a while! Hopefully you all had happy holidays and a great new year! We rounded out the year here at RMR HQ by turning the office into a weird and wonderful world for a video shoot. We can’t wait for you to see it…but more on that in the next few weeks.

In other news, Hollerado are back! They released their new single ‘Born Yesterday’ on Friday and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. If you haven’t heard it yet, you can check it out here and grab it from iTunes. They’re also heading out on tour with Little Junior for a few dates in Canada, and meeting up with the awesome Sam Roberts Band for more fun down in the US, as well as some Canadian fun, too. You can find their dates here.

It may be a new year but, for PUP, it all continues! They’re back on the road again, this time hitting up the UK and mainland Europe. It’s going to be yet another busy year for the gang and if our friends from outside the UK and Europe are sad to be missing them, then never fear! You can almost certainly count on them playing in a town near you sometime soon. Europe friends, head here for the dates.

We also have PKEW PKEW PKEW going out on the road again, this time with Reel Big Fish and Anti-Flag! The Boys are joining the two veterans for a three week stretch taking in the West coast and middle America, and will be crushing pizza and beers every step of the way. Find out when to stock your fridge and have your local pizza place on speed dial here. Before that, though, they’re having a party on the 21st January at Smiling Buddha, and we’ll all be there celebrating! Come hang out!

We have some brand new signings to announce in the coming weeks, and we’re super excited about them. Keep your eyes peeled for more, and let’s have a great 2017 together.

Love and hugs,
