Signal-boosting for my friends in HOLLYWOOD ENDING tonight. You know. These guys:
I’ve had the pleasure of knowing these guys now for more of their career than I haven’t known them, if that makes sense. I first met them in November, when I interviewed them in their tour van at the end of Action Item’s The Stronger The Love Tour. They’d only been performing together for about four months at that point. That means the band is coming up on their first anniversary and although they didn’t win season four of Disney’s Next Big Thing, good things are happening for them. They toured with All-Star Weekend, and I got to see them twice and get to know Tyler and Dan’s moms and chat with the boys a bit individually, especially Tyler and Dan.
The guys have been working on putting their first EP together, and have spent a lot of time in the studio the past few weeks with more time to come.
Their new single “Famous,” which I’ve heard them perform live several time, came out on itunes today as part of a compilation called “Have A Crappy Summer.” The compilation also features Allstar Weekend, Bowling For Soup, and 12 other bands. Give it a listen, and if you like HWE’s song, leave them a comment and tell them Anthony sent you.
You can also find their singles “I’m So Over You” and “You Got Me” on itunes by searching the band’s name, as well as their recent cover of The Wanted’s “Glad You Came,” which I personally happen to like better than the original
