We've had over 550 entries so far for our Get Happy Tour contest, which ends this Friday. Remember that in each city, the winner gets 2 tickets, 2 meet & greet passes, and a small merch pack. What's even cooler is that those winners are entered into a grand prize drawing for a signed guitar, signed bass, and massive merch pack from all four bands (Bowling for Soup, Quietdrive, Melee, and Army of Freshmen). If you haven't entered, you can do so here. Good luck!
To kick off our sponsorship of the Get Happy Tour, featuring Bowling for Soup, Quietdrive, Melee, and Army of Freshmen, we have set up an awesome contest that we're calling "2 Tickets To Happiness." For nearly all of the dates on the tour, we will be giving away 2 tickets, 2 meet & greet wristbands, and a prize package to one lucky winner. Those 35+ winners will be entered into a grand prize drawing the day after the tour. The winner gets both a guitar and a bass signed by all four bands, along with a mega merch package with free stuff from each band. To enter, click here. All of the announced tour dates are in the replies.
The Get Happy Tour will return for a second year featuring Bowling For Soup, Quietdrive, Melee, and Army of Freshmen.

Is there anything specific that you would like to see us do with the Get Happy Tour this year?

If you pre-order the album, you'll get an autographed booklet. Upcoming tour dates are below.
Houston Calls and Quietdrive will be touring together for 7 weeks this summer. The tour will have three separate legs, the first of which David Melillo will be opening; the other two supporting bands, as well as the full tour schedule, should be announced in the near future.
Quietdrive will be giving away copies of their debut EP, Fall From the Ceiling, at all their upcoming shows. All you have to do to get one is sign up for their mailing list and ask for your free copy. Below are all the band's upcoming shows:
Quietdrive has posted a new song titled "Maybe Misery" on their MySpace page. The track is taken from their Fall From the Ceiling EP, which is available for download on iTunes. The song will only be up for a short while.
Quietdrive will be shooting a video for their song "Rise From the Ashes" on January 11th in Los Angeles and need an audience for their set. No location has been specified yet, but we'll let you know as soon as we get the word. In unrelated, but awesome, news, the band will be touring the northeast and midwest (midwest dates with Ludo and Treaty of Paris) from January to February. After that stint finishes up on February 4th, the band will head out west and join the first leg of the Sherwood / Waking Ashland tour through California, Arizona, and Texas.
