Pepper Reveals New Song with New Beat Fund


Southern California-based alternative rock reggae band PEPPER kicked off their national headline tour last night in Tucson, AZ with support from The Movement and New Beat Fund. In celebration of the tour, the band is giving away their new upbeat island-infused song “Every Little Thing” featuring New Beat Fund. “‘Every Little Thing’ was such a blast. I can hear the fun from this tour already boiling over in this track, rhythms and melodies of the ensuing lifelong memories to come,” says the band. The song was written and produced by Pepper and New Beat Fund, mixed by Matt Wallace, and mastered by Maor Applebaum. Download it here:

Their convoy will be heading cross-country to the East Coast, and then circling back to the West Coast to conclude at Santa Ana’s The Observatory on December 14th. As with previous tours, VIP upgrades are available for every show, which gives their fans an exclusive intimate experience. VIP upgrades can be purchased for an additional $50 per person. This exclusive package includes meet & greet, photo opportunity, admission to pre-show acoustic set (setlist determined by VIP buyers’ votes), autographed poster, and a commemorative VIP laminate.

This national headline tour is in support of their most recent self-titled album that was released in the latter months of 2013 via The Island Def Jam Music Group. Their single “F**k Around” peaked at #19 on the Alternative Chart, which is the band’s highest charting song to date. Broadening beyond the surf rock that they have been known for, the band challenged themselves and ultimately made what they consider to be their best record to date. From the feel good, head-nodding “Deep Country” to the sunshine-filled jam “Hunny Girl” to the radio-friendly anthem “F**k Around (All Night)”, Pepper really expands the band’s palette. Since the release of their self-titled album, the band has been gaining momentum with performances on Jimmy KimmelLive and ABC as part of the X Games.

Formed in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1997, Pepper built a huge following through their six studio albums as well as their non-stop touring with bands such as 311, Slightly Stoopid, Snoop Dogg, Pennywise, Less Than Jake, and Flogging Molly as well as impressive sets at Lollapalooza, Miles High Festival, West Beach Music Festival, and numerous rounds of Jagermeister Music Tour and Warped Tour.

Pepper is Kaleo Wassman (vocals/guitar), Bret Bollinger (vocals/bass), and Yesod Williams (drums). Catch them perform in a city near you!
