Snoop Dogg and Williams are set to perform, for the first time ever, the new single “California Roll” on the same day (Tuesday, May 12th) Snoop Dogg’s new Williams-produced album, Bush, is released on Columbia Records. The album is available as a pre-release stream on iTunes radio and fans who pre-order will receive “California Roll” as an instant grat track, as well as other Bush kick-off hits “Peaches N Cream” and “So Many Pros.”
Walk The Moon will perform their #1 certified platinum hit “Shut Up and Dance” from their recently released sophomore album, Talking Is Hard. Not long after its release “Shut Up and Dance” reached #1 at alternative rock radio and has now crossed over into the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. The song has reached the top 5 on the iTunes Top Songs Chart, Billboard Digital Songs and Digital Tracks Charts, has been streamed more than 88 million times globally and is in the top 10 on the Spotify U.S. chart. Walk The Moon, known for their explosive live shows, consists of Nicholas Petricca (lead singer, songwriter and keyboard player), Eli Maiman (guitar, vocals), Kevin Ray (bass, vocals) and Sean Waugaman (drums, vocals), all hailing from Ohio. The band has been on the road for the past few months on the almost entirely sold out headlining “Talking Is Hard Tour.” “They’re taking over the world — one show at a time,” raved Parade and “A polished and highly energetic sold-out show,” exclaimed the Village Voice about their recent sold out Terminal 5 show in New York.
