Before You Exit Join Cody Simpson’s Summer Tour

beforeyouexit

We’ve been following these guys since their inception and are really excited to see them taking off.

The pop trio, known as Before You Exit, have announced they will be supporting Cody Simpson on his Summer Headline Tour, along with special guest, Ryan Beatty. The tour will kick off on May 30th at The Moran Theatre in Jacksonville, FL. Tickets will be available for purchase on April 25th! Before You Exit are currently on tour with Olly Murs on his April/May tour, wrapping up on May 15th at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA. Just releasing their new EP, I Like That, on February 4th, these young pop-rockers combine catchy hooks, charm, with the great musicianship to make an adorable group you will be seeing everywhere in 2013! For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit: www.BeforeYouExit.com.

The Orlando-based band began a few years ago with brothers Connor McDonough, 19, (Vocals/Guitar) and Riley McDonough, 17, (Vocals), only recently did the band bring in younger brother Toby McDonough, 15, on vocals. The trio gigs live augmented by Thomas Silvers (Drums) and Braiden Wood (Guitar). Unlike many bands of brothers, Oasis and The Black Crowes come to mind, the trio work harmoniously. “We actually get along really well. We all have our thing and work in categories by preference,” Connor says. “I write vocal melodies, Riley writes lyrics, and Toby helps with both. There are never fights because each of us can do our own thing, but also contribute to each other.”

Just releasing their brand new EP in February 2013, the three brothers have crafted a soaring pop album of uplifting relationship songs that effortlessly blend sharp hooks with bright and buoyant rock. The album standout and first single, “I Like That”, is a tune with tenderly romantic lyrics and big pop-rock beat. Ryan Daly and Anthony Improgo, along with Connor McDonough, produced the new album. “They really listened to what we wanted to do and let us try out our ideas, no matter how crazy,” Connor says laughing. “Because of that, we feel really connected to the way the recording turned out,” Riley adds.

Conjuring up the optimism in the band’s name-inspired by the sentiment “make a difference before you exit”- the band works daily to make their way to the top but they never fail to stop and appreciate what has got them thus far. “There’s no way we’d be anywhere without our incredible fans. They are behind us every step of the way and are a huge piece of this band,” states youngest brother, Toby. In light of the many short lived and fly by night artists, this young, singer/songwriting, brother driven band, is one to be around for a while.

Before You Exit released their new EP, I Like That on February 4th. To purchase I Like That, please visit: http://smarturl.it/ILikeThatEP. For more tour information or to purchase tickets, please visit: www.BeforeYouExit.com.

Watch out, peeps! These guys are invading the music scene. I have a feeling this is their year!

CELEB SPOTTING: Cody Simpson Stops By Kids Choice Awards GBK, BOP & Tiger Beat Celebrity Gift Lounge

No need to call Chris Hanson on me peeps. I’m so not ready for a have-a-seat-over-there conversation with the guy, I just want to point out that Cody Simpson is getting better looking with age. Instead of an awkward inverted Bieber cut, he now has his own motif going on and more mature swagger. Case in point? Photo Exhibit A above.

Simpson was spotted hanging out at the GBK, BOP & Tiger Beat Celebrity Gift Lounge in honor of the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards. And as you can see Welch’s Fruit Snacks was one of the key sponsors.

Other celebrities that stopped by to snack and pose with their very own Welch’s box was Zach Gordon (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Nolan Gould (Modern Family)and Kalia Prescott (Hunger Games).

Not even the Biebs could dominate this awards show.

Now normally I wouldn’t cover something as juvenile as the 2011 Australian Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, but got damn, you guys can thank Cody Simpson for that. Can I just say that this kid went from severely homely looking to a hardcore cutie patootie? Those awkward pubescent tween years can mess a kid up, but Mr. Simpson is aging nicely.

We’ve got the complete list of winners from the Down Under awards and a slew of photos, including a ton of photos for you Cody Simpson fanatics. Yes, you are welcome.
