On the heels of their recently released new album Night Owls, The Dollyrots, Kelly Ogden (bass and vocals), Luis Cabezas (guitar and vocals), and Simon Hancock as their current touring drummer are ready to kick 2024 into high gear with a January tour run with Bowling For Soup and Lit.
“Going on tour with Bowling for Soup again feels like a family reunion! A lot of The Dollyrots’ early touring was spent with BFS, and we learned so much about being a good band on and off the stage from them. Got to tour the UK with them and Lit last year and it was too much fun. Can’t wait to do it again," shares Ogden.
“'Alligator' is the most adolescent song on Night Owls, and we don’t really mean it from a writing, production, or music standpoint. It’s more about the frame of reference, the imagery that takes us back to growing up in a small town outside of Tampa. We had nothing to do but play guitars & hang out next to lakes, never really fitting in but dreaming of a time and place where we might” - explains Cabezas.
On Night Owls, the Dollyrots once again highlight their ability to craft music that resonates deeply, whether it’s through high-energy punk tracks or introspective ballads. Each track brings its own flair, with subtle tweaks and shifts that keep the listening experience fresh from start to finish. Hear Night Owls at your favorite streaming platform here.
