Since the September 2006 release of BEST STOP POP, The Oohlas – Ollie Stone on guitar and vocals, Greg Eklund on lead guitar and vocals, and brother Mark Eklund on bass, have been touring non-stop. The first half of the year saw the band share the stage with the 88, Pink Spiders, Lola Ray, Under the Influence of Giants, and The Spill Canvas among others. Most recently, the band played New Jersey’s The Bamboozle Fest this past May, then met up with Hot Hot Heat for a handful of dates through the end of the month.
Upon completion of this tour, the band will head in to the studio to begin work on their sophomore effort for Stolen Transmission/Island Records.
