BOWLING FOR SOUP team up with HANSON for new single!
Kicking off in 2019 to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Bowling For Soup embarked on releasing a series of stunning cover songs. The band had so much fun covering artists like Social Distortion, The Eagles, and even Kanye West that they are still putting out new covers when time allows, and this may just be the best one yet.
The latest song to get the Bowling For Soup pop-punk special treatment is the late 90's smash hit Where's The Love by US sibling trio Hanson (they of MMMBop fame). Unlike most covers though - the Hanson brothers - Zac, Taylor and Isaac also feature alongside Bowling For Soup on the track, adding their vocals alongside Bowling For Soup frontman Jaret Reddick.
To explain how this awesome cover came about, we hand you over to Mr. Jaret Reddick: “Taylor Hanson and I have been friends for a long while. So when Chris threw the idea of “Where’s The Love” into our "cover songs to record” mix, I thought, “Never hurts to ask!” Those guys stay BUSY! The idea was for Taylor to sing the bridge. You can imagine our surprise when he sent it back with himself, Isaac and Zac all singing on the song! And WAY above and beyond what we had asked. Our voices sound so cool together, and hearing them sing over the huge guitars is freakin amazing! I have high hopes for this one!”
Bowling For Soup returned to the world of live shows this past weekend in Texas, playing their first full band, full capacity crowd gig since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. They recently extended their rescheduled UK tour, taking place in April 2022, to include three huge new shows, and even gave the tour a new name. Support on the Crowdsurf The UK tour comes will come from alt-rockers Lit and bubblegum punk specialists The Dollyrots. Longtime friend of BFS, podcast host and presenter Matt Stocks has also joined the line up, serving as host and DJ for the tour.
