Smash Mouth Readying September 4th Release Of All New Album "MAGIC"
Exclusive Promotions On Grammy.com and Huffington Post Set To Run This Week
First Single "Magic" Heading for Top 20 On Mainstream AC Chart
SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Smash Mouth, the band that gave you crazy memorable hits like "All Star," "Walkin' On The Sun," "Then the Morning Comes" and "I'm A Believer" among many others, is readying the release of MAGIC, their debut all new album for 429 Records which will be available September 4th. Two notable promotions have been set up for this week to whet the appetite for the release—Grammy.com will host an exclusive "First Listen" of the track "Flippin' Out" beginning August 28th and the Huffington Post will offer a free exclusive download of the remix of the first single "Magic" (a bonus track unavailable anywhere else). The band is headed for another monster radio smash with the single "Magic" as it is headed for the Top 20 on the mainstream AC Radio Mediabase Chart. The band consists of original members Steve Harwell (vocals), Paul Delisle (Bass) and Mike Klooster (keyboards). Rookie players this time around are Randy Cooke (drums) and Mike Krompass (guitar). Krompass in fact, also helmed the producer's mantle (having worked with Nelly Furtado and David Archuleta) capturing the quintessential Smash Mouth party sound as well as helping to take them to the next level. The band will spend the rest of 2012 touring behind the new project as well as promoting the release of their rock and roll cookbook—"RECIPES FROM THE ROAD." "MAGIC" will be released on September 4th on 429 Records.
The release of the album and single are perfectly in tune with the band's reputation for being the "sound of summer." From their debut in 1997 when the smash hit "Walkin' On The Sun" (played by KROQ before any label deal) powered their album "Fush Yu Mang" to double platinum sales, the band has scored hit after hit worldwide. Smash Mouth has toured extensively with notable stops in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay where they entertained U.S. troops.
Says Steve Harwell: "We're so excited to start performing some of the new songs off of this album. We've got so many hits on this new record, it's ridiculous! So get ready for some serious "Magic" this summer! Me and the guys will be bringing the party - Fun in the Sun style..."
