Holiday Mountain Named Top Austin Band of 2013

19 Dec

We are honored to have been named Austin’s No. 1 Band of 2013 by Sonic Vault. It was only 16 months ago that we left Boston to travel to a city where music is respected and an essential part of everyday life. Ever since we arrived we’ve had nothing but fantastic experiences. We love you and we’re so happy that we’ve had such a positive impact on each of you. Your recognition and appreciation is invaluable in encouraging us to continue creating the best music that we can. Thank you so much.

Sonic Vault’s Top 25 Austin Bands of 2013

” …It’s like some sort of social alchemy. Only they’re not converting lead into gold, they’re converting standoffish hipsters into fun-loving fans.
And it’s addicting. Not only do you want to hear their songs, feel their energy, and move to it all with your fellow recent converts, but you also want to watch the musical spell get cast on the newbies.

Laura, Bradley and Zander are not only incredibly talented, they’re bridging bands, linking genres and authoring a whole new chapter of local music across the board.

They’re the new kids on the block, and they’ve already made their mark. But something tells us they’ve only just begun.”

We Need You For Our Music Video

7 Nov

Good news, everyone! We’re in the process of casting our latest music video and would love for you to be a part of it.

We are looking for people of all ages, body types, and ethnicities to dance in our video. Most of all, we want people who are willing to let loose and be free. You don’t have to be a pro, you just have to be unafraid to express yourself.

For those who want to be considered there will be a casting call this Monday November 11th from 3-7pm and again on Monday November 18th from 3-7pm at Onion Creek Productions on 2708 South Lamar in Austin, TX. Shooting for the video will take place in December.

3 Oct

Good news everybody! We have been asked to support our good friends Wild Child as they release their latest LP ‘The Runaround’ on Friday October 11th at The Moody Theater. It is big honor for us to be supporting our friends like this as well as playing at such a highly revered venue. That being said, we would love nothing more than to see you there that day as we share the stage with Wild Child and What Made Milwaukee Famous.

You can pre-order your tickets for the event here.

Meanwhile, The Austin City Limits Festival will have descended upon the city of Austin for two weekends of excellent music and celebration. While this is a wonderful time for many, some residents would like nothing to do with it. With this in mind, the fine people at Raw Paw are taking the reigns for this year’s iteration of Ditch the Fest Fest (DTF Fest). Come get far away from the commotion of ACL and join us at The Historic Scoot Inn for two weekends worth of bands. We just so happen to be playing both weeks. First on Saturday Oct 5th at 11:00pm and a week later on Oct 12th at 10:30pm.

Full event details here.
