As the dust settles on an eventful weekend filled with tears, nostalgia and optimism, graduation season once again enlightens individuals with the promise of a bright future ahead. While most recent college graduates are now taking the necessary steps forward to make strides in their personal lives post-academia, there are many others who are in control of their own paths without succumbing to any lingering pressures to follow the conventional route.
This week, Wall Township-based quartet Halogens announced that they will be embarking on a two-week long summer tour to celebrate their collegiate achievements. Anticipating for a fun-filled run of shows ahead this June, the tour will also feature support from Columbus, Ohio-based quartet, Post Modern and Red Bank surf-punk heartthrobs, Corrina, Corrina, Both acts with sharing the stage with Halogens on select dates — as listed below.
At the start of the year, Halogens unveiled their Self-Titled EP — which highlights on the band’s matured, yet serene musical direction. Blending together catchy lines with an intensified sense of tranquility that is reminiscent to emotive contemporaries like The Front Bottoms, Sorority Noise and Modern Baseball — the group belted out standalone singles like, “Run Around” and “Ayúdame!” to support the record’s release.
With a new record under their belt and overwhelming support from the Garden State’s local DIY scene — Halogens are now ready to branch out, and soak in some summer fun along the way. Party on dudes!
