Southern California Ska/Rock/Reggae/Pop-Punk Band Half Past Two release ‘Holidays’

Southern California Ska/Rock/Reggae/Pop-Punk Band Half Past Two release ‘Holidays’
Salad Days

EP consisting of 4 tracks titled ‘Holiday’ from Madonna, Green Day, Vampire Weekend and Weezer.

Half Past Two, fresh off the release of their first full-length album since 2009, is releasing a new EP titled ‘Holidays’ via Slushtone/Jump Up Records. Guitarist/vocalist Max Beckman says, “While recording our cover of Madonna’s ‘Holiday’ last year, the idea of centering an entire release around covers of songs specifically titled ‘Holiday’ came up and was just too silly to ignore. Completing the additional three songs took a mad dash effort between releasing our new full-length record and returning to live shows but the songs turned out great! We’re super proud of this release and excited for our fans to get in on the joke.” The band will perform at the upcoming In Defense of Ska Tour alongside Buck-o-Nine, Mustard Plug, Omnigone and Noise Complaint on January 16th at the Garden Amp in Orange County.
