This Week In Tally Hall News

Originally published at HITS Blogs. You can comment here or there.

There’s been a lot going on in the world of Tally Hall as they prepare and subsequently embark on their Good & Evil tour.  In case you missed something, here’s a wrap-up of what’s gone down.

On July 20th, the band sat down with Martin Bandyke of Ann Arbor’s 107.1 for an interview and broadcast of some songs from Good & Evil. You can hear that broadcast with and without songs in the HITS Galleries.

Later that night, on July 20th, they held an Open Tour Rehearsal and answered some questions using StageIt. Fans could donate whatever they could to be allowed the view it live. The band received about $250 in gas money, which is a big help, since they’re doing it all on their own, now. After they wrapped up the broadcast they hit the road for their kick-off show in Grand Rapids, MI. For those who missed it, here it is!


July 21st, the band found themselves on the set of ABC13 WZZM in Grand Rapids, MI, where they sat down with Catherine Behrendt to take some questions and performed an acoustic version of Sacred Beast.


Without much of a warning, the band joined FearlessRadio in studio for a lengthy interview and the broadcast of a few songs including Cannibal, Hymn For A Scarecrow, and Fate of The Stars. A recording of this broadcast was posted on HITS Galleries, but has since been taken down at the request of FearlessRadio. They will have a recording of their own up on Monday, July 25th.

Also in the news, the band’s cover (with Casey Shea on lead vox) of Flo Rida’s “Club Can’t Handle Me” got some buzz on MTV Buzzworthy. There’s been a little bit of displeasure coming from some fans who don’t hear the classic Tally Hall spin on this like they hear in other classic Tally Hall covers. Personally, I feel that if this garners them some publicity, then it doesn’t matter. I believe it was really only done for fun and to try and stir up some attention to the tour. Listen to the song here and put your hands up:


Finally, as the tour is still in its beginning stages, allow me to remind you once again that the HITS Blogs are open to everyone to write up and share their own concert reviews as many have done in the past. All you need is a Twitter account or register a new account on HITS Blogs.

The HITS Galleries are also open to anyone to add concert photos (or other TH-related pics/audio).

P.s.  If you don’t follow HITS on Twitter, you should.  If you tweet anything during the concerts to me or with a #tallyhall hash tag, I may retweet it so everyone can enjoy each show together.
