It is now just one week until the biggest UK tour of Bowling For Soup’s almost 25 years together as a band, The Get Happy Tour 2018! With the tour countdown now into single figures, Jaret, Chris, Erik and Gary have a brand new music video to share with everyone.
The video, for their new hit single “Catalyst”, which is already making serious waves on UK radio, is in keeping with the image of its creators – it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face. The video for “Catalyst” was directed by none other than Bowling For Soup frontman Jaret Reddick, who teamed up with longtime BFS video producer Jason Crocker to make the video with their new video production venture, Banned In Texas! Scroll down to watch it.
On the subject of making the video for “Catalyst”, here’s Jaret himself to give everyone the lowdown:
It’s been a while since we did a full on music video, so why not go big! It’s actually hard to imagine that I drove that car all the way across Dallas just a few hours before it was turned into a pile of rubbish! We had a blast shooting this one!
The release of “Catalyst” comes as excitement for The Get Happy Tour is growing rapidly among Bowling For Soup fans all over the UK. With Bowling For Soup set to play their breakthrough smash hit album Drunk Enough To Dance in full for the first time plus a selection of their other favourites, “The BFS Army” have been granted their wish for a tour they have been waiting for for many years.
Throw in the comedic stylings of rock’s resident superheroes The Aquabats! and Get Happy Tour alumni Army Of Freshmen who are also going to be celebrating their hit album Under The Radar by playing it in full, and The Get Happy Tour 2018 will be something talked about for many years to come.
