Baltimore’s favorite punk/rock/reggae band has a treat for you and man is it sweet. For fans that haven’t hopped on board yet, Ballyhoo! has promoted their brand new song through the “Hardcore Hooligan” package, and there’s only a few days left to join!
Fans that order the deal will get a deluxe physical copy of a brand new song with their own face in the album art. They’ll also enjoy a peak into the behind the scenes action through a Storyteller session in which the band talks about where the songs come from while they play. In addition to all of this, fans also received an email with a download code for an early release of the single, “Marijuana Laws”, before everyone else had access.

The band decided to push the deadline to sign up to March 31st, right before the release of all the package’s goods on April 1st. Fans expressed their enthusiasm on the group’s Facebook page.
“Done and done! Loving your new single guys.”
April 1st, as we all know is April Fool’s Day, which the band has cleverly used in their promotion. Anyone out there that does not take up the opportunity to be a hooligan will be labeled as a “Fooligan”. (pretty witty guys).
The song, “Never After” will only be available to Hardcore Hooligans, but a short clip of the song can be found HERE.
The band announced that they will give away another free song on April 1st. This is exclusive to the Hardcore Hooligans, and will not appear on the full-length album. Plans for the full album are in the works, with an expected release date at the end of June. In the meantime, the band will be playing a major national tour to pump up fans for the new music.
