Half Past Two, fresh off the release of their first full-length album since 2009, have released their brand new EP, Holidays, via Slushtone Records & Jump Up Records. The EP consists of covers of songs called Holiday by Madonna, Green Day, Vampire Weekend and Weezer. The band will also perform at the upcoming In Defense of Ska Tour alongside Buck-o-Nine, Mustard Plug, Omnigone and Noise Complaint on January 16th at the Garden Amp in Orange County.

“While recording our cover of Madonna’s ‘Holiday’ last year, the idea of centering an entire release around covers of songs specifically titled ‘Holiday’ came up and was just too silly to ignore. Completing the additional three songs took a mad dash effort between releasing our new full-length record and returning to live shows but the songs turned out great! We’re super proud of this release and excited for our fans to get in on the joke.” (Guitarist/vocalist Max Beckman)
